We're not currently taking bookings for the taxi driver theory test for new applicants.

If you've already completed the theory test and would like to submit your application, you can email this to licensing@barnsley.gov.uk

You need to make sure all of your supporting documents have been certified as originals by a solicitor or other relevant person, and in-time.
