Assistance Dogs

At Monarch we welcome the Disability Discrimination Act’s regulations outlining the duties of taxi firms in relation to Guide Dogs or Assistance Dogs. Section 37a came into force in March 2003.

The law extended the Disability Discrimination Act to make it illegal for minicab drivers to refuse to carry guide dog owners just because they are accompanied by their dogs. Medical exemptions are available if drivers have a certificate from their GPs, as is the case for licensed taxi drivers, just three of whom have exemptions in the whole of the UK and none of those exempted work at Monarch Cabs so if you have a Guide Dog or an Assistance Dog we will be delighted to get you and your dog where you want to go in a comfortable and timely fashion.
