Driver Licences ... more information

In order to drive a taxi (hackney carriage) or a private hire vehicle you will require a driver licence. The Council issues combined Taxi (Hackney Carriage) and Private Hire driver licences so you will only need one licence to drive either type of vehicle.

For further information on the requirements to hold a Drivers Licence and on how to apply for a licence, please read our guidance notes: "Information for Applicants" (see downloads box) or e-mail  licensing@torridge.gov.uk   You can download application forms from the downloads box on this screen.

THE COST OF A LICENCE IS SIGNIFICANT - See fees and charges at http://www.torridge.gov.uk/article/12721/Financial-Services-Publications

PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ THE GUIDANCE CAREFULLY. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE SPEAK TO THE LICENSING TEAM BEFORE COMMITTING TO ANY EXPENDITURE.
