Tax check for taxi and private hire applications

From Monday 4 April 2022, you’ll need to complete a tax check before applying for a licence for a:

  • taxi driver
  • private hire driver

When you’ve completed the tax check, you’ll get a code, which you will need to provide when making the licence application.

You must have this information before making any licence application and cannot make the application without it.
