They also carry yellow roundels (stickers) on both front doors of the vehicle.  The plate and door roundels show the licence number of the vehicle.  The plate on the rear also displays the maximum number of passengers the vehicle is allowed to carry.  Hackney Carriage vehicles must also display a roof sign signifying that it is a taxi.
