Apply to become a Private Hire Operator

One vehicle may be operated from your home address without planning permission. If you have premises you wish to trade from, you may need "Change of Use" and should contact our Planning team for further advice. 

The fee for a new application for a Private Hire Operator's Licence is £650 for 5 years and £605 for a renewal application also for 5 years.

New applicants are required to submit a basic disclosure obtained from the GOV.UK website with their application for an operator licence plus proof of a right to work in the UK.

The basic disclosure must be dated within one month of submitting your application. If you are already a licensed driver with Telford & Wrekin Council you are not required to submit a Disclosure Scotland criminal record check.

Please view the conditions of licence for your information.
