Transfer or change of details


All private hire drivers’ licences are issued to an individual and only after that person has gone through the strict application process. As a result, private hire driver’s licences are not transferable. 

Change of details

If your name or address changes during the term of your licence, you must notify us in writing within 14 days of any changes. A fee of £10.50 is payable.

As well as sending the notification in writing, you must also provide proof of the change, such as a marriage certificate or deed poll certificate. You will also need to provide your updated DVLA driving licence and, if you have a private hire vehicle licence, the updated V5 and insurance certificate.
