Dual hackney carriage and private hire vehicle licence

Apply for a licence

Please note: the process can take up to eight weeks so please bear that in mind if you are renewing your licence.

You will need to download and complete the application form and email it to licensing@newcastle-staffs.gov.uk:

Download the form

In the email you must state your:

  • name
  • address
  • date of birth
  • current badge number
  • current badge expiry date

You must also attach either scanned copies or clear images of the original required documents. The maximum limit for incoming emails is 20Mb so please try and consolidate documents onto fewer attachments where possible.

Those applications that provide everything requested will be contacted via telephone to make payment with a debit or credit card. Those unable to provide everything in one go will receive contact from the team explaining what is missing and what to do next, or rejecting the application resulting in having to start again. 

If you require a new Disclosure and Barring Service certificate then please complete the online application and provide three supporting documents by email to licensing@newcastle-staffs.gov.uk prior to your application.
