A Message from Southampton City Council Licensing Department

Drivers, Proprietors and Operators, please distribute:

Brexit – EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS)

As most of you will be aware the Brexit transition period ends this year on 31 December 2020. This means that from 1 January 2021, the UK will have a new points-based immigration system that will impact how we are able to grant licenses.

If you are an EU citizen you must apply to theEU Settlement Scheme (EUSS), before 30 June 2021, if you want to continue living and working in the UK. See below:

https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/applying-for-settled-status

Southampton City Council value all our licensed drivers and we want our EU drivers to remain working in the city.

Please act now. It’s free to apply and the scheme protects the rights of EU citizens, including access to healthcare, benefits and pensions.

For more information the Southampton City Council section on our website covers a range of topics, including where to get help with the EUSS. See below:

If you have any concerns or questions about how Brexit will impact your licence with Southampton City Council, please email the taxi licensing team at licensing@Southampton.gov.uk

As the transition date is fast approaching, please don’t delay and act NOW.
