What this means for you

When you submit your application, we will check to ensure that everything is in order. If anything is missing, we will contact you using the email address you have provided. We will then send you a link to make your payment. All payments are made online using a credit or debit card.

Once payment is received, your application will be processed.  


Renewal applications must be made and payment received ten working days prior to the date of expiry of the licence.  Your licence is at risk if you do not renew prior to the date of expiry, even if you are also replacing the vehicle. A new application will need to be submitted if your licence has expired, except in the case of hackney carriage vehicle proprietor licence.
