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.
