Prepare for you taxi driver assessment:
Similar assessment to the learner test:
The assessment for taxi drivers is very similar to the learner test: the assessment will last about 30-45 minutes; you will be expected to demonstrate a greater degree of confidence and handling skills compared to those of a learner. The emphasis is on a safe and smooth drive (essential for delivering a comfortable service to your future clients). You will have to complete the test with 9 or fewer driver faults and you will fail the assessment if you commit a fault that the examiner deems serious or dangerous.
During the assessment you will be required to complete one manoeuvre; however the good news is that you get to decide which manoeuvre you will complete.
Hackney Carriage wheelchair assessment.
If you are intending to deliver a Hackney carriage service you will also need to pass the wheelchair assessment; this can be taken at the same time as you assessment drive or can be done on a separate day. Should you take both on the same day and fail one of the assessments, you will need to retake the assessment that you have failed.
