A few months ago, we launched a new initiative helping newly qualified taxi drivers go from badge presentation day to working as a London taxi driver
Test Drives, Inductions, and Training Sessions
Newly passed out drivers who decided to rent from Sherbet receive full training on all aspects of the taxi including the disabled equipment, taxi meter, credit card system, and advice on electric taxi charging. There is also a chance to ask our Driver team (who are working taxi drivers) any question they may have regarding their new career.
Sherbet’s in-house trainer said “The training is invaluable for new drivers since the scrapping of the driving exam a few years ago I feel drivers need this training. We show drivers all elements in operating the taxi including the wheelchair ramp, hints, and tips on driving the taxi and operating the meter and card system.
I also pass my mobile number to all new drivers they are free to call me any time should they have any further questions I’ve held my green badge for almost 15 years, and I love passing on what I have learned.’
Since the start of the initiative, we’ve had many new qualified drivers come through and we are proud to welcome them into the Sherbet family.
Peter who recently received our training said, “I found the training well worthwhile and feel more prepared to hit the streets, also I have Daren’s number if I need any help in the future”.
Due to the success, we will be continuing with the training all next year, so if you’re coming to the end of your knowledge give us a call.
We are here to help.
