Operators must keep a record of rolling stock, driver and all reservations at their location. The Deregulation Act 2015 amended the default term of a residential customer license to 5 years as of October 1, 2015. This provision stipulates that a private lessor's licence may be issued for a term of less than five years, but only if the Council considers it appropriate in the light of the particular case.
In order to request a license or to extend your license, please contact the Herbert Warehouse desk from Monday to Friday between 9.00 a.m. and 2.45 p.m. with all documents and payments. Applicants must pay the full amount of the fees at the time of filing and this can be done at the machine, which is also situated in the Council offices' primary receiving area.
Requests cannot be processed until the proper amount has been received; a copy of the proof of transfer must be submitted upon request to prove that the proper amount has been used. Operating charges depend on the number of vessels in the vehicle population. Owners can also make reservations from an auxiliary building within the city, e.g. a crowded night club, for an upcharge.
Providers must carry out a thorough background search unless they have requested an extended background search while requesting a private rental driving licence. Please refer to the guides for more information on background checks. In order to run a private rental firm, you must obtain a building permit to ensure that your home run enterprise does not cause harassment or disability to your neighbors.
When your private rental car is designed for up to eight people, it can be operated under the supervision of a private municipal owner. Drivers of more than eight vehicles must hold a driver's license issued by the Driver and vehicle standards agency.
