If you are a private hire driver and also want to hold a hackney licence, please complete the request for an additional licence below.

When completing the form, you must upload a colour image of the front of your DVLA photocard.

The fee is a monthly pro-rata for the length of the new private hire licence. 

Once your application is checked, a payment link will be sent to you by email requesting the fee.

By applying for a driver's licence, you are providing consent for the Council to undertake an online DVLA record check.

Receiving your new licence and badges

Once the application, including all required documents, is processed and payment received, a new licence document will be issued as a PDF via email. 

Your declared private hire operator, if they accept via email, will also receive a copy of the licence. 

The email will contain instructions for collecting your badges.
