Free PPE for Taxi and PHV drivers in Wales
Written by Dan Williams on 8th February 2021
Taxi and private hire vehicle drivers in Wales can claim a free pack of high-quality PPE and vehicle cleaning materials, funded by the Welsh Government.
To qualify, drivers must be a licensed taxi or Private Hire Vehicle (PHV) operator registered in Wales.
Drivers will be required to submit their Licensing Authority, Taxi/PHV Drivers License Number and Taxi Firm (if applicable).
To claim your free pack visit the Lyreco website here: https://online.lyreco.co.uk/lyreco-welsh-government-ppe-packs and register your details before the 5th of March.
The free pack will contain:
- Medical grade re-usable face coverings
- Hand sanitiser
- All-purpose sanitiser
Every effort has been made to source products from local suppliers, including Rototherm in Margam and Bio Hygiene in Caerphilly. Each pack is worth £73.50, including free postage and packing.
The Welsh Government is strongly recommending for drivers to wear face coverings when transporting passengers if it does not interfere with their ability to drive safely. The chosen face coverings are intended to be comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The legal requirement for passengers to wear face coverings remains in place.
*Applications for a pack should be made by 5 March 2021. Packs are limited to one per individual. To qualify, you must be a licensed taxi or Private Hire Vehicle operator registered in Wales. Packs will be distributed throughout March 2021 onwards. Please note that delivery tracking is not available and please allow sufficient time for your delivery due to high demand.
