Taxi Periodic Training
We are an approved training centre by JAUPT and DVA N.Ireland to deliver online and centre based Taxi Periodic Training. Introduced in September 2015, it is now a legal requirement for taxi drivers operating in Northern Ireland to complete periodic training to improve their knowledge and skills.
Over a five year period 35 hours of training must be completed including a minimum of 3.5 hours of Disability Awareness.
The training requirement will be phased in between 2015 and 2020 with drivers having to provide evidence of training before their taxi licence can be renewed.
The training requirements can be seen below.
