Experts in Insurance

No matter where in the UK you are, it is essential that all drivers licensed to carry for hire and reward are covered by private hire insurance.

If you don’t want to pay for your insurance in one payment, we can provide policies where the premium is spread across the year as equal monthly instalments, allowing you to budget your money effectively.

As a taxi driver, you must worry not only about your own road usage but also about the risks that other drivers pose. Being covered by a full private hire insurance policy will cover you from risks that all drivers could face.

Insurance Types

Paton’s private hire insurance includes three policy types.


Comprehensive insurance is recommended for all taxi drivers and will cover drivers in all accident scenarios.

Third-Party, Fire and Theft

Third-Party, Fire and Theft will cover a taxi driver if any damage is made to another vehicle or if another driver claims against them, however, offers no cover for the driver’s vehicle.

Third-Party Only

Third-Party is the lowest cover of insurance a taxi driver can get.
