Private Hire Licences ... more information

Private Hire Vehicles are not allowed to ply for hire in the same way as a hackney carriage. The vehicle must be booked in advance of the hiring. This is normally done via the telephone or in person at a booking office.

For information on the requirements to hold a Private Hire Vehicle or Operators Licence, or on how to apply for a licence and the fees involved, please read our guidance notes "Information for Applicants" (see previous page) or e-mail licensing@torridge.gov.uk   You can download application forms from the the download box on this screen.
