Licensing News

Welcome to South Holland District Council's Licensing Department News Section We will use this page to publish any upcoming changes in legislation that is relevant to any of the licences we process which include pubs, clubs, taxi vehicles and drivers, gambling, scrap metal and animal welfare. We will also advise of any road closures that we are aware of happening in the South Holland District and any other news items that will be of interest to our clients.

Heathrow Authorised Vehicle Area

Heathrow has opened an Authorised Vehicle Area to help reduce the number of private hire vehicles parking in local resident roads around the airport.

A dedicated facility for private hire vehicles and licensed taxis to wait for passengers prior to picking up from a short stay car park and meeting at an agreed location within the terminal.

Online Applications

You are now able to make online applications for certain applications (mainly Licensing Act 2003) via our Public Register on our website.

If you have an existing licence with South Holland Council or have had a licence  i.e. TEN with us you will need an activation key. Please email licensing@sholland.gov.uk and we will provide you with that key. 

You will still need to send any relevant documents to the Licensing Team at the moment as we are unable to accept them via this service.

DSA Taxi Driving Tests

From 31 December 2016 the DSA will no longer be providing the facility to have a taxi driving assessment.

As all new drivers are required to have a Taxi Driving Assessment South Holland Council have arranged with Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership to  provide driving assessments on our behalf. Bookings for the assessment can be made by telephoning 01522 805940 stating that this is in connection with South Holland District Council.  The fee of £70 is payable at the time of booking the assessment by credit card or debit card.  All new drivers are expected to be assessed as low risk before an application can be submitted for a new drivers licence.
