How To Apply For A PCO Licence
A PCO licence is a driving licence for private hire drivers, issued by the PCO (Public Carriage Office), a department of TfL (Transport for London).
Private hire vehicles are officially defined as “vehicles that can carry up to 8 passengers and are available for hire with a driver”. This includes taxis, minicabs, and limousines,
All private hire drivers are required to hold a valid PCO licence and work for a licensed private hire operator. The PCO has put these requirements in place to ensure that drivers provide an excellent standard of customer service and keep their passengers safe on the roads.
If you like the idea of working with new people every day, setting your own hours and driving on a flexible schedule that suits your routine, applying for a PCO licence should be your first step towards a rewarding job as a private hire driver.
How Long Does A PCO Licence Last?
Once your PCO licence is issued, it will be valid for three years.
