Disruption to licensing services due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Taxi licensing

We're contacting all taxi drivers with licences that are due to expire in the next month to advise that you can email your documents to us.

If you don't have access to a scanner you can use a high quality photo of any documents that you need to provide. 

We'll then contact you by phone to take your payment and issue your licence as a PDF document by email.

As our department is on shut down we cannot get access to our badge printer or make any vehicle plates. Therefore we advise you to carry your paper licence in your vehicle so that it can be shown to anybody if needed.

We'll continue to run this way of working until we can gain access to our equipment and start making plates and badges.

If you need to contact us, please email licensing@barnsley.gov.uk and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
