If you are thinking of doing the knowledge to become a licensed London taxi driver then you are going to need the blue books runs and this is the first thing you will be thinking of when starting the knowledge of London. That’s fine and yes you will need the blue book runs but what about other stuff such as points, lists of embassies, blue plaques, theatres etc etc.
Most of the runs you buy will have points at the front and back so you can have a quick look before and after the run but what about when you have completed the 320 blue book runs... what then?. You will then begin “pointing” this is where you go out and spot as many points as possible. These include buildings, schools, hospitals, theatres, blue plaques, statues… the list goes on and on. OK so how do you know what points to look for or where they are, well from doing the runs you will automatically be picking up points as you go simply because you will covering the same ground over and over so you will naturally see points. What do you do when you have finished the runs though, what you need is ready made lists with points so you can either search for them alphabetically, if you know what you are looking for or you can search by post code. So if you plan on going to W1 you can simply find all the points in W1 then make a list and go and find them… simples.
For a comprehensive list of points and runs visit www.taxi-knowledge.co.uk they have some really good knowledge related products and all at very good prices. I would recommend the full pack because you get a lot of products, all in fact and you will save yourself money as well.
