Taxi Tests

This is a compulsory government requirement, if you wish to offer taxi services.

We will cover each section of the Taxi Test, which includes:

  • Awareness and anticipation
  • Correct use of speed
  • An emergency stop (although not all tests may include this)
  • A manoeuvre involving reversing
  • Effective planning of prevailing road and traffic conditions
  • Hackney Carriage / Private Hire Care related exercise

Furthermore, if you have a wheelchair accessible vehicle then you will be required to undertake a practical wheelchair exercise demonstrating that you can safely install a wheelchair in a vehicle.
