Taxi driver tests

Practical driving test

The Council has two approved suppliers for the required practical driving test.

Please contact these suppliers directly to book and pay for your driving test.

Driver training/knowledge test

Driver training generally takes place on the last Tuesday of each month, the session takes place in the Central Library and lasts for around 4 hours.

The test is a written test so you will need a good standard of English to be successful.

A good knowledge of Blackburn and Darwen is also required to be able to pass the test.

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the guidance document before you book onto a session (see Documents section below)

To reserve a place on the training phone 01254 267666 and pay the fee.
