Can I transfer my TV Licence to another person, as I'm moving out?

If you’re moving home

Yes. You can only transfer your TV Licence to someone who is living at the same address and is covered by your current TV Licence. To do this, we require written permission from yourself, the current TV Licence holder, confirming the above.

You’ll need to give us the following details:

  • Confirmation the new TV Licence holder is covered by the current TV Licence
  • Your name (current TV Licence holder)
  • TV Licence number

Please email us these details or you can send them to:

TV Licensing
Darlington
DL98 1TL

If the other person has moved in after you have moved out you’ll need to cancel your licence. Find out more about moving address.

Not moving but still want to transfer your licence?

The government funded, free over 75 TV Licence scheme is being replaced on 1 June 2020.


Want to pay for someone else?

You don’t have to transfer the licence if you want to pay for someone else.
