Craven District Council Knowledge Test

A Knowledge Test must be passed before an applicant can be issued a taxi driver's licence.

The Knowledge Test is taken at the Council Offices. You will need to make an appointment to take the Test. Most people take the Test once all the supporting documentation has been provided to the Council.

You must bring photographic identification with you when you take the Test. You will also need to pay £14.07 (each time the Test is taken) before you take the Test.

The Knowledge Test includes a reading and writing test, a verbal test on routes to various locations within the district, a street knowledge test and a multiple choice test based on the Council's Hackney Carriage rules, regulations, Byelaws and relevant parts of the Highway Code.
