Prices and payment terms vary, depending on the system purchased. Applicants should make enquiries with several suppliers before deciding on a system.  You should also ask what support and aftersales care will be available if you have a problem with your system (and what it will cost to have faults etc repaired).

We strongly recommend that have your camera system regularly serviced or checked by the supplier to make sure that it is working correctly.

You may source your own systems – but it must meet the Council's requirements. It's a good idea to ask the Council to verify that the system meets these requirements before you buy it.

The camera technical specification and system requires are available in the Hackney Carriage and Private Hire licensing Policy
