Private Hire Operators

Taxi licensing services

About Licence

All individuals or companies that provide taxi services need to hold a private hire operator licence by law. For a licence to be granted, the individual or company must show the Council that they are a "fit and proper" or trustworthy person.

Applications must:

  • Application form and fee completed online
  • Have the operating base within the Chiltern area
  • At least a basic DBS check issued within the last 3 months. An enhanced DBS certificate would also be accepted if completed on line:
    Apply online for a DBS check
  • Proof of right to work within the UK
