Vehicle / Driver Licences


Please note that due to the large numbers of this type of licence held with Bolton Council, you cannot do an 'open' search (leaving all fields blank).
Please ensure you input information in at least one field.

Making a Representation

The Licensing Register contains the currently issued licences within the Bolton borough. Any new applications or variations for premises licences (alcohol/takeaways) or gambling licences will be advertised in the local press and on the premises itself.

If you wish to make representation about one of these applications, you must do so in writing by the date specified on the advertisement. The Licensing Unit address is:

Licensing Unit
Ground Floor,
Town Hall,
Victoria Square,
Bolton, BL1 1RU

Or you can email

Search Tips

All search fields perform a 'contains' search, this means that you can supply a partial licence number or applicant name and the site will return all records that contain that value anywhere within the particular field.

Entering search strings into more than one field performs an 'and' search, so a search for '123' in Licence Number and 'Joe' in Applicant Name will return results that match both 123 and Joe.

None of the fields are case sensitive.
Wildcard searches such as * and % are not accepted.
