Coronavirus - Our Services

Taxi Licensing

Because of the face to face nature of various elements of applications for new hackney carriage and private hire vehicle drivers licences as well as the pressure on medical services that these applications require, we have taken the decision to suspend the processing of these applications until further notice.

It is our intention to continue to deal with existing drivers for as long as possible but there may be some delays so please get renewal documentation in to us in a timely fashion so that we can do everything we can to get new licences out before expiry dates.  

Please be aware that all Council services are now under pressure to meet the public health requirements from this outbreak, but we will try to continue to provide timely licensing services during this time.
