Hi everybody,

I'm trying to find out how to became a taxi driver here in Luton. A driver I mean.

I'm searching on the internet, but I don't find anything. I will go to the council on Monday and I'll ask there. I'd like to know if I need to pass an examination as I imagine and what kind of examination it is and/or any kind of training.

I have a clean driving licence.

Thank you very much.

wow, thanks a lot, gusmac. It was so easy. I swear I've been looking for it several days.

I see there is a "knowledge test" to be passed. Does anyone know what is this test about and where I can find it or get prepared for ti?

Thanks again.

I' ve been in the council today and they gave to me all I have to study to pass that test. I think it's not very difficult, but I also think I have to improve a little my English level. :wink:

I still have a couple of doubts that I'd like to ask to you tomorrow.

See you. 8)
