A RHYL taxi has been taken off the road after a clampdown.
A campaign to check the roadworthiness of taxis in the town has been carried out with testing by officers from Denbighshire Council's Licensing and Community Safety Enforcement team, North Wales Police's Road Policing Unit and VOSA.
A total of 14 taxis were examined.
One taxi was immediately prohibited and suspended for a defective tyre.
Three taxi drivers were issued with delayed prohibitions for defective exhaust, steering defect and defective brake warning light while four deferred suspensions were issued in relation to taxi licensing conditions.
Two vehicle defect rectification notices were issued by North Wales Police in relation to those defects and illegal registration number plates.
Officers from Denbighshire County Council, North Wales Police and VOSA will continue to carry out checks on taxis and private hire vehicle and will take appropriate action where necessary.
