New applicant - Driving Assessment Test

New applicant: Driving Assessment Test

Prior to submitting an application for a New Hackney Carriage and / or Private Hire Driver Licence the applicant must complete the Driving Standard Assessment Test (Hackney Carriage Driver assessment / Private Hire Driver assessment).

The standard of the assessments are set at a level suitable for a full DVLA driving licence holder. It is therefore higher than the learner driver test.
