Book a taxi surgery appointment

You can use this form to book a taxi surgery appointment. You do not need a reference number to make a booking.

You can book an appointment to:

  • apply for a new executive hire vehicle licence
  • transfer plates (non-hackney)
  • renew a licence (driver and vehicle) or renew a badge

Before you start

A surgery appointment can be:

  • booked or rearranged up to 3pm the day before, subject to availability
  • cancelled at any time. If you cancel after 3pm or fail to attend you'll be using a slot that could have been used by someone else
  • can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance
