Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Fees

Last Modified June 06, 2019

Taxi Licence Fees 2019 - 2020

We have considered our fees and advertised our intended fees for 2019-2020 in accordance with the provisions of Part II of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act of 1976. The last fee increase was in 2015.

During the fee review exercise, we have ensured that the basis for which those charges are made is correct and soundly based in law. Furthermore, we are required to cover its costs for administering licences.

Having received no objections by the closing date of the 30 April 2019, we have now set the fees for the following which took effect from 1June 2019.
