    www.hackneycarriagedriverscompany.com

    The Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers is the 104th Livery Company of the City of London, having received Grant of Livery in February 2004. Our members are all professionals who earn their living through the Hackney Carriage trade and include some of London’s black cab drivers, renowned for their famous Knowledge of London.

    The main purpose of the Company is to bring together like-minded people who wish to maintain and secure the long-term interests of those who earn a living within the Hackney Carriage trade. The Company also endeavours to promote public awareness of the extremely high standards of the Hackney Carriage trade and industry.

    Trade and craft associations have been established all over Europe for many centuries. In the City of London these companies are known as the Livery and all are unique in their survival, number and diversity. 'Guild' derives from the Saxon word for payment, since membership of these fraternities was, and still is, paid for. The word 'livery' refers to uniform clothing as means of identification, hence the term of freemen being "clothed in livery" when they become liverymen of their Company.
