Welcome to the new and updated Taxi Academy Website!

If you have ever wanted to become or just find out more about what it takes to make it as an Edinburgh Taxi Driver, you have come to the right website.

If you want to work full time, part time, or just some casual work to supplement your income, it is worth working toward your taxi licence, and my aim is to ensure that your journey to become a cabbie is less fraught and more enjoyable.  If you have not already noticed by now, Edinburgh is now a major world player when it comes to tourism and hosting major international events. Each year sees a jump in the number of visitors to our beautiful capital city and this is great news for the taxi trade. 

The Taxi Academy will lead you through all the pitfalls and legal issues with regards what is required to cut it as a taxi driver in Edinburgh. I will not only teach you all the required streets, routes, hotels, etc, but also encourage you to become a better and more thoughtful driver.
