An Application For A Hackney Carriage Licence On Change Of Vehicle
In order to apply for a Hackney Carriage Licence for a Change of Vehicle, the
following procedure must be followed.
An application form must be completed and signed by the proprietor.
A logbook (in the absence of the logbook, please speak to staff for advice)
must be produced for the new vehicle.
A fee of £122.00 must be paid and a receipt is then issued. The vehicle test
appointment will be confirmed at this point.
When the vehicle has been passed, the proprietor must come to the service
point reception, along with the pass sheet, old plate and insurance.
The new plate is then issued along with a licence and the window stickers
with details of the licence and the Licensing Authority.
If your vehicle fails the test, you will be issued with the
relevant documentation at the Test Station which will outline
the reasons why. If the failure is due to MOT standards, you
will be issued with a ‘Refusal MOT test Certificate’ which
again outlines the reason for the refusal (there is important
information on the reverse side of this document which
should be read).
Any enquiries regarding the above can be made at the service point or by
