Taxi Vehicle Transfer

  • Before you start...
    First, you need to make payment of £41.00 using the Civica Pay function for your application, this form will ask for the receipt reference number. Complete this form with all required documentation. The Licensing Officer will check your application and will then send your new licence plate in the post by Special Delivery.
  • All applicants must own the vehicle and are required to upload images of the following documents: Insurance Certificate, Insurance Schedule (applies to Fleet Owners), Compliance Certificate from a nominated vehicle testing station, and Page 1 & 2 of your V5C Log Book. If applicable, a Seating Configuration, and Loler certificate (For wheelchair acessiable vehicles) If you do not have a full log book and do not require a seating configuration - the Licensing Officer will accept the new keeper slip but will issue a temporary licence until the full log book is received. If your vehicle log book states that your vehicle is wheelchair acessiable you should state this in your application. It will be the decision of the Licensing Team wether your vehicle will be licensed to carry wheelchair passengers.

  • Document Upload
    Take care in uploading your documents. We do accept images from a mobile device but be mindful that these documents are to be scanned to your licence record, so they must be clear and legible for the Licensing Officer to process your application. A good image can be taken by placing the document on a flat surface and taking a photograph from above, close enough to be able to read all of the necessary information. This step is crucial in having the Licensing Officer process your application in a timely manner.
  • Seating Configuration
    Vehicles over 4 passengers will also require a Seating Configuration, conducted by our Enforcement Support Officers before we accept the application. Contact the Licensing Team at so they can book the seating examination. You will need to have the Full logbook before we can conduct the examination.
