About the licence

You can speak to a Licensing Officer, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 1pm, and without an appointment. If you have an urgent enquiry outside these times please email

Anyone in the borough of Wyre who wishes to invite or accept bookings for private hire vehicles must hold a valid Wyre Private Hire Operator’s licence.

All journeys undertaken by Wyre private hire vehicles must have been booked through a Wyre operator and the driver must also hold a Wyre dual driver’s badge.

Private hire vehicles are identified by numbered plates on the front and rear of the vehicle which have a green background. Large adhesive door stickers must also be secured to the front doors, indicating the need to pre-book all journeys with the operator.
