wheelchair access

Specialised, trained drivers able to assist.


We are proud to provide an excellent service for wheelchair users, and have developed a quality training programme to continue to improve our standards. We liaise with many of the town’s service providers and partners to have an open dialogue on the requirements and changes to customers of accessible vehicles.

We have a large variety of wheelchair vehicles, all with specially trained drivers.

Please prebook your taxi with us, so we can assign you a driver ahead of time.

Brighton and Hove Streamline Taxis have developed a Catstream (UK) disability handling and awareness training course (DHAATC ©) for hackney private hire and car drivers.
The course has been accredited by Brighton University and been issued with a "Req" mark, which stands for "Recognising Educational Quality".

It has also been adopted by Brighton and Hove city council for driver's of wheelchair accessible vehicles (wav's).

The course involves both a visual and practical demonstration and lasts for two and a half hours.
