Training for the taxi test isn’t as easy as it may sound. Since its introduction in 1999, the pass rate has been just 33%.

For that reason, we provide tailor-made courses for all potential taxi drivers whether it be

  1. Cambridge City Council Taxi/Private Hire or
  2. South Cambridgeshire Taxi/Private Hire.

Our trainers are all very experienced ADIs with years experience in the Taxi Industry and are therefore extremely capable of helping you pass the Taxi Test.

Please note that this is not the ‘knowledge’ test that some councils employ – this is the Driving Standards Agency’s test of your driving ability. We can assure you that safety is our top priority. All our vehicles are covered by a fully comprehensive motor insurance policy -when taking our tailor-made hassle free courses to become a potential taxi driver there no additional worries and will allow you to be more  focused on the training.

Given the low pass rate, we will assess your current ability, highlight areas in need of improvement and provide relevant training. It may occur that little or no training is actually needed – you will only pay for what is required.

After the training, you can go away for a couple of weeks with the chance to improve and then be reassessed nearer to the test date. We understand the importance of passing the test and we will do everything we can to help you to pass it first time.

Please also make it easier on yourself and do not leave it till the last minute just before your test to contact us as we may not be able to fit you in.

Call or email Driveaway School of Motoring to find how we can help you prepare for and pass the Taxi Test.
