Update 30.03.2020:  Hackney carriage and private hire licensing

The Licensing department is still operating but with a significantly reduced level of staff. Unfortunately we are not able to offer any appointments to see a licensing officer in person at the moment. All queries should be sent by email to: Please do not contact us about non-urgent matters, so that we can concentrate on processing applications and allow you to keep working.

With immediate effect, existing drivers who would normally be required to produce a new group 2 medical with their renewal application are NOT required to do so until further notice. Instead they will be invited to make a sworn declaration about their current health status.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, any prospective new drivers would be unable to submit all of the supporting evidence required by Wyre council and so we are temporarily suspending knowledge tests. Further guidance for taxi operators and drivers can be found here
