Renew an existing licence
To drive a Hackney Carriage you must have a licence issued by us.
- The fee for a Hackney Carriage Driver Licence is £185
- Each licence is valid for a period not longer than 3 years
Please read the Renewal Hackney Carriage Taxi driver Guidance Notes before completing the application form.
Incomplete applications will not be accepted and will be returned to you.
We expect all applicants to familiarise themselves with Council policies and conditions attached to licences. We expect that Hackney Carriages licensed by Rossendale will predominately work in Rossendale and applicants should therefore ensure that they have read and understood the Intended Use Policy.
All renewal Hackney Carriage drivers will have to complete and pass a Knowledge and Conditions Test if your licence expires after 1st June 2017. We will only renew your licence when you have successfully passed this test.
A mock test can be found below which gives you an idea of the types of questons asked and how the questions are displayed i.e. multiple choice.
