TAXI DRIVER TRAINING IN BIRMINGHAM 

Kick start your career as a taxi driver

Interested in becoming a taxi driver? The Birmingham local authority requires you to take a taxi driving test. This assessment will provide you with the full qualifications needed for you to accept fares for paying passengers. I can train one driver or if needed, whole fleets. Start your driving lessons today.

THERE ARE 3 FORMS OF TAXI DRIVER TRAINING ASSESSMENT

The test lasts approximately 40 minutes and like the normal driving test, will involve an eye test at the start. The test involves independent driving as well as carrying out a manoeuvre (either a turn in the road, reverse around a corner or using side roads on the left to complete U-turns). At the end of the test you will be asked to answer questions: 5 road sign questions from the highway code, 3 general questions from the highway code and 2 cabology questions.

STANDARD ASSESSMENT

The standard assessment teaches you everything you need to be able to operate a taxi, with the safety and comfort of your passengers your utmost priority.

UPGRADE ASSESSMENT

You can take this test once you have already passed the standard assessment. This will enable you to carry passengers who require the use of a wheelchair.​
