If you wish to appeal against points issued on your hackney carriage or private hire driver or operator licence, you will need to complete this penalty points appeal form and send it to us by email.

For details on how we use data relating to licence holders and applicants, please see our privacy notice for licence holders and applicants.

We share information with Thames Valley Police and other local authorities across Oxfordshire, in accordance with this Joint Operating Framework.

You can also review our licensing enforcement policy.


If you require a medical, you will need to print out the medical examination report form and take it with you to your appointment. You will then need to ask the doctor to complete it for you. Before leaving the appointment, please check the doctor has completed the entire form correctly, including the front sheet. We often reject medicals due to them being incomplete.

For drivers who have diabetes managed by insulin or a sulphonylurea or a glinide, a full medical is required at the usual intervals determined by your age and any other medical conditions, and in additional an annual specialist medical will be required in accordance with DVLA Group 2 guidelines – for more details please see this annual diabetic medical form and guidance which should be sent to us once complete. If you are unable to find a specialist to complete this form, send us an email so we can assist with a referral.
