A licence re-grade means changing the type of Driver Licence that you have. For example, from Private Hire to Hackney Carriage.

In order to re-grade your Driver Licence, you must have:

  • passed the Knowledge Test to the required standard
  • passed a driving standards assessment to the required level

How much does it cost?

It costs £20.00. You can apply and pay using our online form. It takes approximately five minutes to complete.

At the end of the form we'll ask you to pay by credit or debit card.


Please note that you'll be asked to upload a copy of your driving standards assessment certificate. We'll also ask you for your Gravesham Driver Licence reference number and expiry date.
