Taxi licences

    This information is provided for individuals or companies wishing to apply for a taxi licence.

    Holding a taxi licence does not mean you have to own or operate a taxi, as you may lease the use of your licence to an accredited operator to run the business.

    Important notice

    The value of a licence may vary over time due to a number of factors, including market demand, economic conditions and regulatory activity. Intending licensees contemplating acquiring a licence should seek independent advice on the suitability of the licence for the intending licensee's purposes.

    Transport for NSW makes no representation as to the future market value of any licence.

    Existing and prospective licensees are informed that in circumstances where the market value of a licence is impacted by the effects of regulatory reform or other factors, Transport for NSW cannot be held liable to pay any compensation to the licensee.
