How Long Does It Take

Blue Book Runs, How to become a London Cabbie No Comments »

This is a question that many people ask when considering doing the knowledge and the best answer is “how long is a piece of string”. It really depends on the individual and how quick you can take in all the information that you need to learn to become a London taxi driver. You are looking at between 2-5 years on average to complete the knowledge of London, of course it will always make a difference if you are doing the knowledge full time or part time because obviously the more runs you can do the quicker you will get through.

Many people do the knowledge part time though and that is usually because they are already in full time employment it is still possible to do the knowledge part time but obviously it will take slightly longer than if you were doing the blue book runs full time.

Whether you are doing the knowledge full time or part time you will still need to cover the same runs and there is also tens of thousands of points to find. The cost of the blue book runs vary but you can pay as much as £80 just for the 320 blue book runs but there are cheaper alternatives out there and taxi-knowledge do a complete pack which consists of all the 320 blue book runs plus over 30,000 points, blank maps, lists of police stations, theatres, embassies, museums and much more for under £30 and the great thing with the pack from taxi-knowledge is that they are downloaded instantly and you then simply choose which runs you want to do, print them off then get out there and do them. If you need to make changes, which you will do, you just make notes on the printed sheets then when you get hoe you can change the run on the computer, save it and then next time you have a fresh run.

So don’t be put off by the length of time it will take you to become a licensed London taxi driver because the rewards are still very good, you work when you want and are your own boss. So if you are thinking of learning the taxi knowledge then check out the complete pack at taxi-knowledge.co.uk

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 Some people won’t even buy runs that they think are out of date.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 taxi-knowledge.co.uk 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.

Free Blue Book Runs

Free Taxi Knowledge Runs No Comments »

Everyone is trying to make money from everything so when we come across something that is free we wonder what the catch is. Well you can now get a free list of the taxi knowledge book runs and there really is no catch. The list of runs are updated with the changes that were made by the P.C.O in 2013.

OK maybe there is a catch, if you really want to call it that. What you get for free is the blue book runs list, which means it’s just point A to point B and not the actual run, so lets use Manor House to Gibson Square as our example. The actual run would look like this:

Lol______ Green Lanes

R________ Brownswood Road

L________ Blackstock Road

F________ Highbury Park

F________ Highbury Grove

R________ St Paul’s Road

Com_____ Highbury Corner

L/by_____ Upper Street

R________ Barnsbury Street

L________ Milner Square

F________ Milner Place

Gibson Square Facing

So as you can see that run shows you what route to take to get from point A to point B. The difference with the blue book list and the actual blue book you will get from the P.C.O is that it will just list the runs like the example below:

Run 1 -  Manor House Station N4 to Gibson Square N1

So the blue book list of runs would be something like this:

Run 1 -  Manor House Station N4 to Gibson Square N1

Run 2 - Thornhill Square N1 to Queens Square WC1

Run 3 - Chancery Lane Station WC1 to Rolls Road SE1

Run 4 - Pages Walk SE1 to St. Martins Theatre WC2

Run 5 - Australian High Commission WC2 to Paddington Station W2

Run 6 - Lancaster Gate W2 to Royal Free Hospital NW3

Run 7 - Fitzjohns Avenue NW3 to Fitzhardinge Street W1

Run 8 - Ritz Hotel W1 to Battersea Park Station SW8

Run 9 - Ponton Road SW8 to Camberwell Grove SE5

Run 10 - Knatchbull Road SE5 to Surrey Quays Station SE16

Run 11 - Timber Pond Road SE16 to Grocers Hall Court EC2

Run 12 - Barbican EC2 to Mile End Station E3

Run 13 - Beaumont Square E1 to Cannon Wharf Business Centre SE8

Run 14 - New Cross Station SE14 to National Maritime Museum SE10

Run 15 - Maze Hill Station SE10 to Abbey Road E15

As you can see you will not be given the actual route so you would have to work that out for yourself, which would take you a long time, time you could be spent doing something more productive. This is why you buy the actual runs, they are already worked out for you saving you lots of valuable time.
So although you can get the blue book runs list for free you will not get the runs themselves so i suppose if anything that is the catch, but free is free so Click Here and get yours today.

Doing The Knowledge With a Criminal Record

London Taxi Knowledge 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.
