Taxi driver periodic training
Drivers renewing a taxi driver’s licence must show that they have completed the required amount of taxi driver periodic training.
The training must have been delivered by a training provider authorised by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) for this purpose and at least 3.5 hours must have been Disability Awareness training.
Both classroom-based and in-cab driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training and classroom-based Taxi Driver Periodic Training (TDPT) have now resumed in Northern Ireland.
DVA still encourages periodic training to be delivered remotely where possible, to help restrict the spread of the virus. However, where necessary, classroom based periodic training can take place providing the latest Public Health Agency (PHA) and government guidance is adhered to.
Details of all taxi driver periodic training courses that have been authorised by DVA are on the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) website.
