Fees from 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2023

 A complete list of the current fees for licence applications, inspections and sundries relating to taxi and private hire licensing can be viewed Taxi Licence Fees 2022 - 2023 [PDF 267 KB]

It should be noted that these are the fees that the taxi trade pay to apply for or renew their licences - they are not the fees that a driver charges a customer. 

The charge that drivers make to their customers (to help them recover the cost of their business) are set separately and are known as taxi fares.

Council Officers are reviewing the current maximum fares that the taxi drivers are allowed to charge.  These fares have not been reviewed since 2011.  Officers will be working with the trade to introduce a revised table of maximum fares that can be advertised for consultation with all stakeholders including the general public.

The fees charged for taxi and private hire licence applications, vehicle testing and sundries have been subject to the usual annual review.  It was necessary to propose an increase of 5% in most cases, in order to reduce the current service subsidy.
