New hackney carriage and private hire driver licences

Apply for a driver licence

Your conduct in making the application may be used in consideration of whether you have acted with integrity during the application process (e.g. if you make a false declaration or withhold any other relevant information that would reasonably be expected to be disclosed, this may be considered dishonest and the application may not be looked on favourably).

Before starting this form please ensure you have the codes you generated on the previous pages.

You can log back in and return to a previously started form at a later stage.

The fee payable on application is set by us and may be revised from time to time.

A licence will not be granted until all the relevant checks and tests have been completed, however if information collected during the application process highlighted that you are not fit and proper to hold a licence your application may be refused at any point. Any refusals will have the right to appeal. Information around this will be provided within any decision letters.
