ESOL for Minicab Drivers

Are you a minicab driver licenced by TFL?
Do you need to study English for your job?

If you drive a minicab in London, you currently need to have good English skills as a condition of your licence. Enrol on one of our free, specially-designed short courses, to help you achieve the level you need, as quickly as possible.

We have two levels:

  • Preparation for Minicabs E2 Functional Skills
  • English for Minicabs E3 Functional Skills

You will be assessed on application and offered the appropriate course. If you are not suitable for one of these courses, we will be able to give you advice on the best study route for you to achieve the language skills you need. There's a £30 membership fee payable at enrolment.


Please note the following guidance from Transport for London: ‘We won’t automatically accept all ESOL and EFL qualifications but … we will consider as proof that you can meet the English language requirements … Functional Skills qualifications in English (Entry Level 3).’
