Essential Skills Assessment

We strive to ensure our services meet the highest possible standards and we extend the same standard to those who wish to become licenced drivers within our borough.

This assessment will test you on a range of skills we consider necessary to reach those standards.

This is an important part of the application process in becoming a licenced driver with us, and you must have passed the assessment before you can be issued with a licence.

You may bring your own calculator to the test (not a mobile phone, tablet or any other electronic device with the ability to access the internet). An A-Z will be provided for you to use while sitting the test

To book your place on the Essential Skills Assessment contact us and you will be sent a study pack prior to the test.

You will need to arrive at the Town Hall for 9:30am. Please allow 2 hours for the assessment.

You are advised to familiarise yourself with the contents of the Taxi Licensing Policy.
