Private Hire Operator Licence

If you intend to plate your own Private Hire Vehicle and work completely on your own, you will need to have a Private Hire Operator's Licence which is valid for five years.

If you intend to plate your own vehicle and operate it under another person's Private Hire Operator's Licence, you may do so, provided the Operator declares this and pays the appropriate fee if this is needed.

Your Driver's application form will require you to state whether you will be working out of your own premises, or using someone else's office.

Forms for private hire operator licence renewal applications are not available online as these are sent to the licence holder together with an invoice for the renewal fee one month prior to the current licence expiry date. Please be aware that application forms which are submitted before an invoice has been issued will not be accepted.
