What Is Drivetech’s Taxi Test?
The Taxi Test is reflective of modern driving practices and the standard is set at a level suitable for the full driving licence holder. Drivetech has a long history of delivering driving assessments and training for those who drive for work purposes, and work in accordance of the DVSA Taxi Test Framework.
Our extensive experience has resulted in valuable insights into the needs of individual drivers and the risks associated with different professions and vehicle categories.
The aim of the taxi assessment is to assess the attitude, behaviour and competence of taxi drivers to maximise driver and passenger safety. The assessment process assists local authorities with their health and safety compliance obligations. It also ensures that professional taxi drivers themselves understand and meet their responsibility to ensure that their fare-paying passengers have a safe, comfortable and enjoyable journey.
Some aspects of road risk, faced by those who drive taxis, is surprising. While certain results may be explained by known traffic patterns and working practices, others exhibit risk patterns unique to taxi drivers compared to the rest of the driving population. Drivetech invests in understanding these risks to maximise the relevance of assessments.
