Private Hire Operator Licence

You need an Operator Licence to run a Private Hire business

Vehicle and drivers each need their own Operators Licence. This includes:

  • Any driver or person receiving bookings
  • Anyone with contracts for hire and reward in a private hire vehicle (licenced by us)

A Private Hire Business must be based in Fenland District Council's area.

If you are operating a Private Hire business from your home, you may require Planning Permission, depending on how the business operates. It is recommended that you contact the Planning Team planning@fenland.gov.uk giving details such as the number of vehicles at the property, number of employees visiting the property and any customers visiting the property. Further information is provided at Private Hire Planning permission.
