Do Apollo teach further driving courses for the DVSA driving Test?

Diamond Accredited Taxi and Private Hire Driver Training Course. (DATT registered)

You may be aware that the national pass rate for the DSA taxi assessment last year was 50.9% (Jan07 to Dec 07 latest stats.)and that two thirds of those who didn't pass received serious or dangerous faults. It's worth noting here that just one serious or dangerous fault would be enough to fail a learner test! This pass rate is only slightly higher than the learner rate and is probably due to the fact that as professionals, taxi drivers do not see the need for training - unfortunately the opposite is true. Any driver after a period of time develops habits, not all good, and would probably not pass the standard driving test again without at least some refresher training.

As Diamond accredited Taxi-driver Trainers (DATT) we are able to provide you with a complete one-stop shop for all your requirements at a highly competitive cost.

For a no obligation discussion or to book a service please call; 01179 300 677 and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
