Apply for a new licence - step by step
New tax regulations come into force on 4th April 2022
From 4th April 2022 you must complete a tax check to renew a taxi, private hire, taxi operator or scrap metal licence, or to apply for the same type of licence with a different licensing authority. We will not be able to process your application without your tax check code. Find out how to complete a tax check on GOV.UK
6. Apply for your licence
If you have:
- completed steps 1 to 5 and
- completed and submitted the online form that we emailed to you
You can now complete the LCC Driver Licence legal application form below.
What happens next?
When you have completed this form, you will receive another email with a link to upload the proof documents you have obtained in steps 1-5, including a passport photo. These can be scanned documents or clear photographs.
We will not be able to issue your licence until we receive and validate them.
You can no longer submit any documents by email as they will not be processed. Need some guidance on uploading the proof documents? Watch or read the 'how to' guide.
