Tell us about an offence

If you are a taxi driver who holds a taxi licence issued by Liverpool City Council, you must tell us if you are arrested, convicted of a crime or are issued with a caution or fixed penalty notice.

If you are a taxi driver licensed by us, you must tell us when you are:

  • convicted of any offence in a Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court in England and Wales - this includes any motoring offence
  • convicted of any criminal offence in any other part of the United Kingdom or abroad - this includes any motoring offence
  • given a simple caution by any police force in the United Kingdom for any matter
  • given a fixed penalty notice (FPN) for any matter - this includes any motoring matter
  • arrested on suspicion of committing any offence which is sexual in nature, dishonest, violent or motoring-related
  • charged with any offence which is sexual in nature, dishonest, violent or motoring-related

Read our privacy notice which tells you how we use your data.

Tell us about an arrest, conviction, caution or FPN

Apply for a new DBS 

You must also apply for a new DBS as soon as you get your first reminder from us, three months before your current licence expires.

As soon as you receive the new DBS certificate please send it to us at Licensing Section, Liverpool City Council, Cunard Building, Water Street, L3 1QX so that the Licensing Committee has plenty of time to consider any fresh convictions on it.

Temporary licences are no longer issued, so failure to apply for your new DBS in good time may mean you are without a licence and unable to work if, in the meantime, your current licence expires.
