Special Restricted Licenses
Special Restricted Operator Licenses are used to operate a licensed taxi on a local service.  You can only apply for this if you are a licensed taxi operator.  A local service is one where stops are no more than 15 miles apart and at least one stop is within the area of the district council that issued the taxi or private hire vehicle licence (PHV).

Current Financial Levels

The amount of funds you show for each vehicle changes annually and the way that you show the funds differs depending on your situation. The length of time these funds are shown also differs. It is possible to ask for a “Financial Condition”, under certain circumstances.

This is important and we can discuss the options with you, so you understand the levels required for your specific circumstances.
