Taxi Driver Training Courses

Blue School of Motoring can help you prepare for the taxi driver test. As you have been driving for a number of years it's easy to get into bad habits, and the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) Examiner will expect you to drive as a professional, so the standard is high, and most people fail their taxi test, this is due to not taking any tuition from a Driving Instructor, before attempting the taxi test. So please phone us and book an assessment before going for your test.

What happens at the end of the test To pass the taxi driving test you need to complete it with no more than nine minor faults. You will fail if you make any serious or dangerous errors. If you fail the practical test you must wait a minimum period of three clear working days between tests. There is no limit to the number of attempts you may take. You can get more information on the DSA taxi test by asking the local council in the area where you wish to operate.
