Outrage at new rules as taxi drivers in Gloucester told to retake tests at their own cost

1 post in this topic

Every single taxi driver in Gloucester has been told they must retake their driving tests – at their own expense.

New city council rules mean taxi drivers must be retested every ten years.

It is understood some of the rustier drivers have failed the standard exam set by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

All hackney carriage and private hire drivers licensed by the authority must take tests by October next year.

It will cost them up to £112 to take the test for wheelchair-accessible vehicles.

Gloucester City Council has replaced the Gloucestershire Road Safety Assessment with the DVSA tests to maintain high driving standards.

Cabbies who fail will be suspended until they pass.
