English Language Requirement

An English language requirement applies to all applications for private hire drivers licences received by most Licensing Authorities i.e Trafford Council and Transport of London on, or after, 14 October 2016. This includes applications for both renewal and new licences.

Applicants may satisfy Licensing Authorities of their ability to meet the requirement by providing:

  • A certificate from one of  Secure English language Test providers confirming that the applicant's level of proficiency in the English language is at level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: ("CEFR") or above; or;
  • Documentary evidence of a qualification (whether or not the qualification was obtained in the United Kingdom) on the basis of which Licensing Authorities are satisfied that the applicant's level of proficiency in the English language is equivalent to level B1 on the CEFR or above.
Exam Only and Courses are available to help you achieve the right qualification for you.
