We are responsible for licensing taxis in the New Forest. This includes hackney carriage and private hire drivers, vehicles and operators.
Any vehicle carrying eight or fewer passengers for hire or reward must be licensed, and can only be driven by a licensed driver. Both licences must be issued by the same council. A private hire vehicle must receive its work from a licensed operator from the same council.
Our reception areas have reopened to the public but please check opening days and times before visiting as these have changed.
