Taxi driver information

We strongly recommend that you do not apply for a new taxi licence at this time - there are long delays in processing applications.

However you can still apply to renew your licence online. We are not taking test fees for vehicle licence renewals, only the licence fee. Currently:

  • all appointments are suspended.
  • knowledge and locality tests are suspended.
  • vehicle tests are suspended - from 30 March 2020, your vehicle's current Certificate of Compliance will be extended during this period. If you are booked in for a test from 1 April to 30 June we will be contacting you over the coming weeks.

If you are considering installing a protective screen in your taxi, please read our information on safety measures in taxis.
