Private Hire Operator's Licence

An individual, company or similar, who in the course of their business allows and accepts bookings for a private hire vehicle must hold a private hire operator's licence. 

A private hire operator licensed by us may only operate a private hire vehicle which has been licensed by us. Likewise, the private hire vehicle may only be driven by a South Somerset District Council licensed private hire driver. All three licences (operator, vehicle and driver) must be issued by the same authority. 

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
