Taxi Driver Assessments


The Blue Lamp Trust has been a leading provider of assessments for Taxi licence applicants and existing Taxi drivers since 2011.

As a not-for-profit organisation, all our proceeds go towards our "Bobby Scheme" which provides free home safety and security to elderly and vulnerable people.

Taxi Assessment Structure

The assessment consists of a driving licence and eyesight check followed by a 45 minute driving assessment across a variety of road types. Each candidate will be asked to perform 2 reversing manoeuvres and possibly an emergency stop. A maximum of 9 driving faults are allowed and a high level of driving competence is required to pass.

Successful candidates will be issued with a copy of their marking sheet and certificate.

Refer to our video to find out more.


We can deliver taxi driver assessments nationwide.
