Please note, we are no longer including an application form in your renewal pack. Please read the renewal letter that you have received which sets out clearly what you need to do.
If you need to contact us, please email your query to email@example.com.
If you still feel you need to leave a telephone answer message, please note that we will prioritise your call and may not be able to respond to you if your enquiry could be resolved by visiting the website or if it relates to information set out in your renewal pack.
We license hackney carriage vehicles and private hire vehicles with eight seats or less. We also licence stretched limousines with eight seats or less and tuk-tuks.
All vehicles will have to be inspected carried out by one of the approved testing stations. List of Approved Testing Stations and Testing Station Fees. This is an annual inspection for those vehicles less than 5 years old. If the vehicle is 5 years or older, it will be required to have 2 inspections a year, one every 6 months.
As well as passing the Driver and Vehicle Standards MOT test, each vehicle must pass our supplementary test. Please download the Supplementary Testing Manual for more details.
