Service update

The Licensing service is switching to a new computer system at the start of October. There will be disruption to the service we are able to provide over the next two weeks, whilst we move from the two existing systems to one integrated system. Read more about the changes.

Licensing service provision

Our continued new ways of working mean the licensing offices remain closed to visitors. A pre-booked collection service is in place for collecting badges and plates etc. and it is advised that you continue to contact us via email.

We advise that all applications be made and submitted via the GOV.UK website (where applicable) or via email to We will aim to respond to your email as soon as we can.

Licensing service updates will continue to be posted on the Taxi and private hire bulletin.

Please note: The DBS checking service run by Occupational Health is back up and running and you can now apply for your DBS check
