Please ensure that you renew your licences well in advance of the expiry date, failure to do so could result in your licences not being sent to you in time, meaning you will be unable to work until you receive them.  You are unable to renew after the 30 April, this will result in the licence lapsing.

Read the Hackney Carriage (Taxi) and Private Hire Policy for requirements and more information.


The fee for a Hackney Carriage renewal is £185.

The fee for a Seasonal Hackney Carriage renewal is £115.
