Approved By Transport for London
The Vehicle Site Ltd was previously approved by TfL to become a Topographical Test Centre for over 3 years. Now all Tests are done in-house at TfL’s premises.
During 2016 TfL investigated the conduct of hundreds of Topographical Test Centres in and around London. It transpired that many centres were issuing Topographical Test Certificates without adequate assessment procedures. This lead to the closure of all centres across London and the withdrawal of their ability to issue Topographical Test Certificates.
Subsequent to this we were approved to become one of the reputable Topographical Test Centres in London.
As we were an approved centre this means we can ensure you get the best possible training on the most relevant topics. There are various Topographical Packages which we offer. Just see which suites you the best.
We provide a one-stop-shop for the PCO Licence application. All you need to do is pick up the phone and give a call.
What is the PCO Licence?
The licensing scheme is run by TfL which is still know by many as the Public Carriage Office (PCO), a department of Transport for London (TfL) and is needed to do Minicab or Chauffeur work in London. Without this personal licence no Minicab/Chauffeur operators/offices will employ you.
As a licensed driver you can have the freedom and flexibility to work when you want and be your own boss. You’ll have a worthwhile career with the potential to earn a £40,000+ salary.
The only limit to your wages are the hours you choose to work. You can also look forward to great bonuses during seasonal times e.g Christmas and New Year when the potential to earn and save increases. Private Hire Drivers can now also take advantage of the new mobile application era. Work for several companies at any one time and further increase your earning potential.
The application for a PCO Licence can be done through us. We provide full support and assistance to anyone wanting to obtain this licence. Our services range from doing any part of the application to submitting your entire application to TfL. We have helped licence 000’s of drivers each and every year.
The application for the PCO Licence can take up to 24 weeks to grant. However if you choose our services (Platinum Package) we can speed up the process considerably. You could end up being licensed in as little as 16 weeks!
