Taxis and private hire

We issue taxi and private hire vehicle and driver licences annually, and are responsible for enforcing the terms of the licences.

When applying for a licence, please make sure you read all the relevant guidance. It may cause a delay if your application is filled out incorrectly, or any documents are missing.

To discuss your licence, or if you need help completing an application, you can visit the helpdesk at our Military Road offices. The desk is available between 10am and 12noon Mondays and Fridays, and between 2pm and 4pm Wednesdays.
