Taxi Driving Lessons

Anyone wishing to work as a taxi or private hire driver in Sheffield or Rotherham must take and pass the taxi driving test.

We can provide lessons to help you prepare you for the taxi test and pass it.

The test is approximately 40 minutes long and includes roughly 10 minutes of independent driving to ensure you can make decisions safely and without prompt. You will also be asked to complete an eyesight test by reading a number plate on a stationary car. You may use glasses/contact lenses but if fail, you will not be able to continue with the rest of the test.

To pass your test you are allowed to commit up to 9 faults, if you acquire 10 or more faults this will count as a fail and you will not pass your test. If you commit any serious driving errors or make a situation dangerous this will be marked down as a major fault and you will fail your test. There is no limit as to how many taxi assessments you can take.
