Unfortunately the sound quality issues we experienced earlier today have returned. We have escalated the original report to our telephony provider and they are working to resolve the issue. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Renewing taxi and private hire vehicle driver licence
We normally send licensed drivers a renewal reminder letter around 2 months before the expiry of their licence.
You can download a renewal application form. The fee to renew a licence for three years is £281.
You may also need to provide a medical form and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application. To check, contact us using General Enquiries.
Laws and regulation
Licences to act as the driver of a hackney carriage/private hire vehicle are issued under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 and Town Police Clauses Act 1847.
