Wyre licensed drivers

Only those people that have satisfied the council that they are "fit and proper" will be granted driver licences.

In Wyre this means that they:

  • Are at least 21 and have held a valid full driving licence, for at least two years
  • Have had an enhanced background check with the Disclosure and Barring Service and any offending behaviour that this highlighted, has been properly considered in line with the council's policy  
  • Have been tested on the relevant law relating to taxi legislation, the highway code and the safeguarding of passengers
  • Have passed a local knowledge test, to demonstrate that they have a good knowledge of the borough
  • Meet the DVLA Group 2 standard of medical fitness

All licensed drivers must wear an identification badge, issued by the council, which includes their name and a photograph and their licence number.
