Apply to transfer a vehicle licence

An applicant for a vehicle licence must be the registered keeper of the vehicle concerned.  

An individual person, partner, or company director wishing to licence a hackney carriage or private hire vehicle must complete a basic criminal record disclosure application (except where an applicant is a driver currently licensed by Telford & Wrekin Council and they want to submit their existing enhanced disclosure/DBS update service reference number instead of a new basic disclosure, the Council will accept that). Visit the GOV.UK website for more information about completing a basic criminal record disclosure application.

The fee for a transfer application for a Vehicle Licence is £90.

The vehicle must be insured for hire and reward. In the case of an "Any Driver" policy, the insurance certificate must be accompanied by a schedule of drivers who have been declared to the Insurance Company.

A transferred licence will be issued for the period up to the expiry date on the existing licence.
