Show all parts of this guide

1. Driver information

We will need to be satisfied that the applicant is a fit and proper person to hold a hackney carriage driver’s licence and can require such information as may be considered reasonably necessary to determine whether the licence should be granted.  A Disclosure and Barring Service check is always carried out at a cost to the applicant.

Licenses expire on 31 October every year.
