Course description

Preparation course for TFL Drivers:

Cultural Exchange English School offers preparation courses for private hire drivers who want to take a Trinity ISE I (B1) Secure English Language Test (SELT) required by Transport for London (TfL).

Transport for London announced in 2016 that all new applicants, and existing private hire drivers applying to renew their licence for the first time since the introduction of this new requirement, must now meet the equivalent of a B1 English language requirement. Trinity College London’s ISE I Secure English Language Test (SELT) has been approved by TfL for this purpose. This course will help students prepare for tests for TfL.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Why has TfL introduced an English language requirement? As a private hire vehicle (PHV) driver in London it is important that you can communicate in English with your passengers. For example, you may need to discuss a fare or route with your passengers. There may also be occasions when you need to communicate with your passengers on a safety issue like the use of a seat belt or talk with them in an emergency situation. It is also important that you can read and understand information provided to you by Transport for London (TfL), such as the conditions of your PHV driver’s licence or any notices given to you by our on-street Compliance Officers. You may also need to write to us, for example to let us know about changes in your health or any criminal convictions or perhaps communicate in writing with a passenger who has a hearing impairment. We have introduced a requirement for every PHV driver to ensure that they have adequate English language skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening as we consider all of these skills are essential for you to carry out your role as a PHV driver in London
