Over the past discussions we have had roumors and so on but no one approached cab drivers on the ranks for this. I wonder if vulcan or Aftab may have a pointers on who may be contacted over some training and we could organise a class for our cab drivers also?

Has anybody thought of contacting the two companies and see who is providing their training and then getting in touch directly with the training company involved, all i do know on the subject is that the NVQ is not currently compulsory, but may come in the future who knows it has been introduced elsewhere, AT present i know that if you are currently licenced(working ) then the btec nvq is free and the costs are met out of Government Train to Gain initiative

Having just spoken to Taxi Licensing I have heard that there are people out there scarmongering about this nVQ stuff being compulsory for all drivers ans that you may lose your badge if you do not take this NVQ. The Licensing Section have stated to me that this is not the case, they say that a report (public) will go before the licensing board in August about the training that is available to drivers, there is no officer recomendation on the report which states that this should be brought in. The report I believe will be available from the website at least 7 days prior to the hearing.

Is there a proposal to make it a condition of license for the new drivers at all? From reading up on this subject the training isn't even relevent to our trade, how is that going to improve things?
If it was training on how to secure wheelchairs and your and customer rights and so on then it'd make a difference but checking spelling is neither here nor there. The council seems to have got the right approach on this one methinks.
