PCO English Test, B1

The B1 English Language requirement is a must for all drivers!

PCO English Test

All New & Renewal PCO Licence applicants are required to pass the new PCO English Test. The current level set by TfL is the B1.

TfL have split the English Language Test into 2 parts. Both these parts will be tested by TfL. From November 2021 all new and renewal applicants will have to sit their English Language Tests with them. Speaking and Listening will be one part and the second will be SERU. Currently, you have until March 2023 to complete both. Yes, you will be licensed prior to passing the tests so long as you have passed your Topographical Test (again with TfL).


We, The Vehicle Site, previously only provided a booking service for the B1 English Language. Your actual training/examination was  conducted/recorded by an independent company “Margate School Of English” Headed by Robert Mark King, the director. In light of the changes introduced by TfL surrounding the new B1 requirements, Robert King has ceased doing any further Training and Examinations.
