Guidance for new Taxi and Private Hire Drivers

After you're licensed

Once you’re fully licensed, you’ll:

  • be expected to follow the conditions of your licence (PDF 210kb)
  • need to have a medical at least every three years
  • need to renew your taxi or private hire licence, DBS check and vehicle licence before they expire

You may need to renew your licence or take a medical sooner, depending on how old you are.

If we have evidence that you haven’t followed the code of conduct, we could take enforcement action against you or your vehicle. Alternatively, we may issue penalty points.

For more information, you can read appendix J (PDF 156kb) and appendix I (PDF 550kb) of the Taxi Licensing policy.
