There are a fixed number of Hackney Carriage licences in Kirklees. The only current option is for an existing proprietor to transfer their existing vehicle and licence to a new proprietor.

This transaction is negotiated between the two concerned parties, not the council. A transfer application form is then completed by both parties. There is a transfer fee of £40.80.

How to transfer an existing vehicle and licence

  • Complete the transfer form and phone 01484 456868 ask for a vehicle transfer appointment. Both parties need to attend the appointment.
  • Bring the following documents to your appointment:
  • Your driving licence
  • The new keeper should bring vehicle insurance details and log book (original copies) and a letter from their taxi base.

Clock Completing this form takes around 15 minutes
