Renewing taxi licences
Taxi licences are issued under the Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016. They are granted for a term of 12 months and can be renewed.
The Point to Point Transport Commissioner will send a renewal notice to the licence holder shortly before the renewal date. Renewals are to be made through the Industry Portal.
The cost to renew a Taxi licence is $200.
Surrendering taxi licences
A holder of a taxi licence may, at any time, surrender the taxi licence by giving the Commissioner a notice of surrender. A notice of surrender must be in the form approved by the Commissioner and specify the date for the surrender to take effect.
Taxi plates must be returned to Service NSW immediately at the surrender of a taxi licence.
Suspension and cancellation of taxi licences
The Point to Point Transport Commissioner may suspend or cancel a taxi licence if:
the licence holder fails to comply with a condition of the licence
the licence holder fails to comply with the point to point transport law
the taxi service for which the licensed taxi is used has been or is being conducted in a manner that causes danger to the public
for any other reason the Commissioner sees fit.
A taxi licence which has been cancelled ceases to be in force from the date of cancellation and a taxi licence which has been suspended ceases to be in force from the date of suspension. The number plates must be surrendered within seven days to Service NSW. Licence fees are not refundable.
