Taxi driver licences

It is an offence to drive a private hire/hackney carriage vehicle unless you have a valid licence issued by the Council. Unlicensed drivers will be prosecuted. You may not drive a private hire/hackney carriage vehicle until your application has been granted and a licence has been issued to you. All applicants and licence holders must familiarise themselves with Council policies and conditions attached to licences. Please see the policy document in the Documents section below.
