Please note the Enhanced DBS does not have to be completed to start the course however starting your Enhanced DBS checks at the same time as attending the course will speed up your application process significantly.
If you are having trouble with this process, please visit one of our offices at 6 Childwall Fiveways, L15 6YB or Unit 8 St Chads Parade, Kirkby town centre, L32 8RH for a printed-out step by step guide.
If you want to apply for a new taxi licence and have lived outside of the UK for three months or more since the age of 18, you need a Certificate of Good Conduct from the country, or the countries, you lived in.
Please check with your own GP for eligibility or you can visit a medical practice that has access to your medical records.
Step 4: Attend all course sessions
Once you have completed the course and passed all modules you can attend a BTEC Certificate presentation at our head office, Alpha Taxis, 6 Childwall Fiveways, Liverpool, L15 6YB
Please note, this will be a temporary certificate until the original is posted. You will be able to use the temporary certificate to take out your badge until your official qualification certificate is posted out to you. This is normally within 12 weeks of completion.
The results of your right to work in the UK will be sent your registered current address via post.
