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 Lawton Street, Openshaw, Manchester. M11 2NS:
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 Taxi Licensing 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 refund against the card you used to pay the fees. If the card has expired a cheque will be raised. Only the fees for the unused tests will be refunded.
