Transferring a vehicle licence
If you sell or transfer your vehicle you need to let us know in writing within 14 days. We’ll need to know the name and address of the new owner.
If you’re the new owner of a taxi vehicle, you can apply by post or bring your application to a Citizen Service Point.
You'll need to bring or send:
- a sale or transfer application form (pdf, 255k) (opens new window) : filled in by the previous owner
- an application form (pdf, 274k) (opens new window) : filled in by the new owner
- original certificate of insurance: we'll return this to you by post
If you post us your application, you need to send us a cheque payable to Bristol City Council. If you bring your application to a Citizen Service Point, you can pay there.
How much it costs
It costs £43.50 to transfer ownership of a taxi vehicle.
