Change in registration numbers from July 2018: In July 2018 the CPV registration system superseded the taxi and hire car licensing system. Licences which were not connected to a vehicle as at July 2018 have been assigned a 'cancelled' status following the transition to the CPV registration system. This change has altered the number of active vehicle registrations reported effective from July 2018 onwards.
