Taxi and private hire vehicle licensing

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.

There is no fixed limit to the number of taxi licences issued by Amber Valley Borough Council. Each application for a new licence is considered individually by an authorised officer under powers delegated by the council. These powers enable the authorised officer to grant taxi/private hire vehicle licences where the vehicles fulfils the basic qualifications.

You will be expected to demonstrate either to the appropriate officer, or to the committee (as applicable), your commitment/ability to provide a satisfactory service to the travelling public.
