Transfer to a Hackney Carriage (Taxi) Driver licence

If you are a private hire driver and want to cancel your existing licence and replace it with a hackney driver licence, please complete the transfer licence online form below.

Transfer a licence

When completing the form, you must:

  • Upload a colour image of the front of your DVLA photocard
  • Pay the required fee by card 

You will be contacted within 10 working days by email to attend a Hackney Boundaries Test.
By applying for a driver licence, you are providing consent for an online DVLA record check to be undertaken by the Council.

Receiving your new licence and badges

Once the application including all required documents is processed and you have completed the Hackney Boundaries Test, 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.
