Private Hire Car Driver's Licences

West Lothian Council as licensing authority administers a licensing scheme for private hire car drivers licences. A private hire car driver's licence entitles the holder to drive only a private hire car.

The Licensing Team are able to provide general guidance on the scheme but cannot assist you to complete your application form or provide legal advice on whether a licence is required. You should seek legal advice from a solicitor or advice centre if you are unsure as to whether you require a licence.
