Taxi Licensing

Under the current circumstances, we will continue to provide a service as best we can and would ask for your patience at this time.

For any driver/vehicle renewals, please ensure your paperwork and fee are submitted (preferably electronically) as early as possible, and an officer will call you once your plates are ready to collect. Badges will be issued and sent out once a week so it is imperative that you apply in good time to avoid disruption to your licence.

Please note there will be no vehicle inspections during this period, plates will be issued upon receipt of application and payment.

Emails are being checked and the phone lines are open between 9am-5pm so please contact the Licensing Team using these methods. The number for the Licensing Team is 01304 872295 and the email is
