We will only be processing taxi driver renewals at present.
You must provide all of the required documentation i.e. including medical self declaration form, evidence of right to remain in UK, and a Disclosure and Barring (DBS) Certificate (where applicable).
If you are unable to do this now (i.e. because you are not working or unable to work), you will be able to submit your application at a later date with no penalty i.e. as long as all your documents are valid, and you have no further convictions, you will be re-licensed from the date your application is approved.
Reminder letters have been sent to all drivers due to expire up to the first week of June and we will continue to send out reminder letters. Please inform us of any change of address or contact details as soon as possible.
Your reminder letter explains what is needed for each particular application. Please read this information carefully before you submit your application.
If you do not need a medical or DBS this year, you can email your application form, together with a copy of the front of your DVLA driving licence to email@example.com
You must also provide the DVLA check code for us to process.
If you need a DBS, or need to confirm your Right to Work, follow the procedure set out in the reminder letter pack. You will be asked to scan your DBS documents and/or right to work documents to us.
It will not be necessary to forward the original documentation at a later date unless we have any further queries.
Once we have received a valid application we will contact you with details of how to pay the fee.
You will need to have your driver badge to hand when you pay as your driver badge number is needed for your Reference number.
Once the application has been verified, a licence will be emailed to you. The driver photo-card will follow at a later date.
You may also post an application, with the information referred to above, to:
However, as there is limited access to postal services at the moment, this is likely to delay your application so try to apply as early as you can. Again, we will contact you to explain how to pay the licence fee.
Any current driver that cannot be licensed because they cannot produce the required documentation or does not wish to work during the Covid 19 crisis will not be penalised. When a valid application is made it will be granted under the existing procedures e.g. the current late renewal process is suspended.
It may take longer to respond to email enquiries but our firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox is being monitored.
If you use the CIV contact centre, please leave an email address if you have one.
We may need to update this information from time to time and will post any changes to the main Vale of Glamorgan website under the Covid 19 update Section at www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk
Please see the section on Group 2 medicals if you are due to provide a medical certificate this year.
