Taxi licensing

How do I apply for a hackney carriage vehicle licence?

You need a hackney carriage vehicle licence for any vehicle that can carry up to eight passengers and can be booked, flagged down or hired at a taxi rank.

We only grant licences for brand new, purpose-built, fully accessible vehicles that meet certain specifications. In this respect please contact the Licensing Team to confirm suitability.
