We're to help you every step of the way

In order to drive for MovementsUK, you will require a local authority Private Hire driving licence. Currently, we hold Operators Licenses with both Charnwood Borough Council and North West Leicestershire Council, the latter of which affords the easiest path to success. Licensing costs are the responsibility of the applicant in the first instance but are then recovered via the £495 signing fee when you start. Our licensing team will provide end-to-end support for you throughout the process, putting together your initial application documents and even making the appointment on your behalf. In fact, we'll do everything we can except take the test for you!

 

THE LICENSING PROCESS COMPRISES:

  • DBS Criminal Record Check
  • GP Medical
  • Blue Lamp Driving Test
  • Knowledge Test - Private Hire Legislation - 5 Questions Only (answers can be found in the documents in links below)
  • Knowledge Test - Local Authority Regulations - 5 Questions Only (answers can be found in the documents in links below)
