If you are applying through your business and they are making the application on your behalf using Licence Management or Licence Assist service they will process the payment on your behalf.

The licence application fee is not refundable if a licence is refused or withdrawn. It covers the costs of the administration and statutory checks the SIA makes on every application, whether the application is withdrawn or if the final decision is grant or refusal. The fee will be returned to the applicant only if the application form cannot be adequately processed, for example due to incomplete, unsigned or illegible completion of the form.

"The licence application fee is £220 for a three year licence, except for front line vehicle immobiliser licences where the fee is £220 for a one year licence. Discounts are available if you need more than one licence.

You must report it to the SIA. If your licence has been stolen you should report the theft to the police, obtain a crime reference number from them and forward the police report to the SIA with a signed covering letter. If your licence has been lost you should write in explaining the circumstances of the loss - your letter must be signed. If your licence has been damaged you should return the licence to us with a signed covering letter.

We do not normally charge for replacing a licence; however, if we receive repeated requests for replacement cards we may investigate further and/or demand a fee.
