Bournemouth Council

Taxi Licensing

We license all taxis in Bournemouth. There are two types of licence – one for private hire and one for hackney carriages. If you want to be a taxi driver, sign up for our application process. We also register new taxis when taxi drivers replace their vehicles

Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles

We license Hackney Carriages and Private Hire vehicles. We ensure every taxi driver has excellent knowledge of the area, and is a safe driver.
