How to surrender or cancel a private hire licence

If you no longer want a vehicle to be a licensed Private Hire Vehicle, please follow these instructions:

  • Take the front and back Private Hire Vehicle Licence Plates, together with the current paper licence to the garage at Hammerstone Road in Gorton:
MOT Testing Station
Manchester City Council
Hammerstone Road
M18 8EQ
  • The staff will take the plates off you and stamp the paper licence as ‘cancelled’ and return the paper licence to you for your records.
  • The staff will also tell the Finance Officer so that a refund of any fees can be processed for you, if appropriate. If a refund is due, this will be sent to you in the form of a cheque.
