Intention to renew existing Private Hire / Hackney Carriage Driver Licence

During this current situation, all licence holders who wish to renew an existing private hire / hackney carriage driver licence must register their intention by completing the form below.

Only those that register their interest will be entitled to continue to use their licence (after the expiry date has passed) until such time as a full renewal application can be submitted.

All applications will be acknowledged and you will be provided with a unique reference number. You must keep this with you when driving a private hire / hackney carriage vehicle as evidence of your entitlement to continue to drive, as you will not receive a new licence or identification badge at this time.

Once the licensing service re-opens you will be required to submit a full renewal application within a specified period, which will include:

  • Payment of the relevant fee
  • Completion of a satisfactory DBS application
  • Submission of a satisfactory medical report
  • Evidence of your entitlement to work in the UK.
  • Licence details
  • Your details
  • Name
  • Medical fitness
  • Convictions
  • Declaration
  • I can confirm that it is my intention to renew the above licence. I confirm that I am entitled to work in the UK. I understand that when the facility becomes available, I will be required to apply in the usual way and will have to do this within a specified period.
