Question

By next summer, all applicants for private hire driver licences will need to pass an advanced driving test prior to becoming licensed. This will also apply to existing private hire drivers as they review their licence. IAM RoadSmart runs the only advanced driving course that is accredited by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. Will PHV drivers be expected to pass this particular course in order to be licenced? If not, then please list which companies TfL will be working with.
