London licensed taxis are called ‘black cabs‘. However, the technical regulations for the London cabs called ‘Conditions of Fitness‘ are not specifying black as the only colour.JMA_cabSo the taxis on London streets that used to be traditionally black are allowed to be of different colours. Some traditional technical requirements stand however. These are: separate passenger and driver compartments, high internal headroom, and ability to turn 180° within the 28 ft limit.
