Becoming a taxi driver
We issue two types of licenses:
- Joint Hackney Carriage/Private Hire drivers licence (JDL)
- Additionally Conditioned Drivers licence (ACD)
Our private licensing policy contains further information.
- ACD’s are single licences that allow the holder to drive additionally conditioned private hire vehicles only.
- If you're applying for an ACD licence you'll be exempt from the local knowledge, simple arithmetic and visitor information sections of the required knowledge test. However you won't be licensed to drive ‘standard’ Private Hire Vehicles or Hackney Carriages.
