DIAmond Accredited Taxi Driver Training Course (DATT)
… I am an Accredited Taxi-driver Trainer. The course has been developed by the DIA
(Driving Instructors Association) – DIAmond Advanced Motorists.
Some Licensing Authorities insist that before you are issued with a Hackney Carriage or Private Hire drivers licence you must pass a Hackney Carriage/Private Hire assessment. If your Licensing Authority requires you to take the test, it is recommended that you familiarise yourself with the content of the test and that you take professional instruction prior to taking the test.
The standard of the taxi assessment test is set at a level suitable for the full driving licence holder, which is therefore higher than the learner driver test.
