The Taxi Test is of an advanced nature & is a lot more stringent than a Learner Driver Test. A lot more is expected from the candidate. Not everyone's driving is up to this standard. We recommend that you take a few hours training with an A.D.I (Approved Driving Instructor) who has the relevant information in regards to the test.
It's difficult to put an actual figure on this as no two potential Taxi Drivers are the same, on average most candidates take between 5-10 hours training.
