Whose Runs to Use?

The knowledge No Comments »

When it comes to runs there are not really many choices because at the end of the day a run is a run is a run. Some people won’t even buy runs that they think are out of date. The thing with runs is that they are just a guide and once you get onto your appearances you will probably not be asked any of the actual runs in the modules. You could get some runs from and then simply update them yourself. The beauty of getting them digitally is that it makes it so easy to find any runs you want to be doing or revising. Also when you go out you will find you are writing over the sheets so they end up very messy. All you do is make any changes and then update them on your computer, next time you have fresh tidy runs. The thing is no matter how up to date someone says their runs are you will always find errors and changes.

What you need to remember is that when you set out to do the knowledge you don’t know, well many don’t, exactly what it is you do need. Obviously you will need the blue book runs or modules and you will also need a list of points but a lot of the other stuff people will try and sell you is just not needed.

Doing The Knowledge With a Criminal Record

Uncategorized No Comments »

This is a question that gets asked a lot and there is not a simple answer, well there is, the simple answer is yes you can do the knowledge if you have a criminal record. The reason it’s not that simple is because it will depend on many factors, what was the the offence, how long ago was it, how long your conviction was. A lot of people worry about becoming a London cabbie if they have points on their licence, this really doesn’t matter but other offences can and will make a difference. The P.C.O will not look kindly upon violent offences such as GBH or ABH because to become a London taxi driver you need to have a good character and not be likely to attack your customers.

So doing the knowledge with a criminal record is OK but in all cases you need to tell the P.C.O about every conviction you have, this is only for current convictions, you do not need to tell them about any spent convictions but it’s best to be as honest as you can with them because if they find anything out later there is a good chance you will not be allowed to continue doing the knowledge.
