Dual Driver Licences

If you intend to drive either a Hackney Carriage or a Private Hire Vehicle in the Wealden area, you will need to apply to us for a Dual Driver licence.

Wealden Dual Driver licences permit you to drive Hackney Carriage or Private Hire Vehicle licensed by Wealden District Council. If you intend to drive vehicles licensed by another authority then you must apply for the relevant licences required by that authority.
