Dual Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver Licence

New Taxi Policy

From 1 November 2019 a new Taxi Licensing Policy will be in force which means that there are some changes in relation to the Dual Driver Licence application procedure and the conditions of your licence.

The new policy can be viewed here.  It is recommended that you read this and familiarise yourself with the policy as it will be an essential part of the knowledge test from 1 January 2020 and will affect your current licence. 

First and foremost it is the responsibility of the Council to protect the public and to ensure that before anyone is granted a licence the Council needs to be satisfied that he/she is a fit and proper person to hold such a licence.

The following pages offer further information in relation to the Dual Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver Licence. 

Please e-mail a member of the licensing team if you require further information or call 01782 717717.
