Point 2. Have a Medical Check
Please read here to find out what the medical check will entail.
We can provide you with a Medical Declaration form (chargeable). If you’re a Platinum Package client we supply this form free of charge.
Point 3. Complete your DBS check
Complete a DBS check with a specific Online Disclosures company. Every applicant for a PCO Licence must carry out an enhanced DBS check.
Please note, once you have completed the DBS check you have 4 months within which to submit your full application to TfL. So it’s safe to say, make sure you get all the application submitted within this time limit.
Point 4. Topographical Test.
As part of the application for a PCO Licence you will need to demonstrate your topographical skills (map reading ability). We provide full support and training to candidates from all backgrounds and learning abilities. Please note, we were a TfL approved Topographical Test Centre (Barking). Naturally, we are in a strong position to provide independent Topographical Training to people of all levels of understanding.
