Pre-assessment training

Many people fail the assessment because it’s been a long time since they passed their driving test.

If this could be you, and you don’t want to waste money, we recommend doing our taxi driver pre-assessment training first.

We’ll explain each part of the assessment and what the examiner looks for. You can practice on a typical route, and get example questions, tips for passing, and see common reasons for failing.
