Taxi licensing

The Council's Taxi Licensing Service deals with essentially 3 types of application - drivers, vehicles and operators.

Both drivers and vehicles are split into either private hire or hackney carriage with separate rules governing each. Operators fall under Private Hire and so there is no facility for a Hackney Carriage Operator Licence.
