TFL delays Minicab driver’s English Language Requirement to September 2017
Mareeg.com -Last night, TfL announced that they have decided to move their English Language Requirement deadlines back to Saturday 30th September.
Why has this happened?
Like many of you, we believe TfL’s new written English language regulation is unfair. You’ve probably heard in the news or from us that we’ve been challenging this requirement with TfL. A final decision will be made in court at the end of the month.
We know that passing a written English exam has nothing to do with communicating with passengers or getting people from A to B. It won’t make the public safer, but it will cause stress and strain for thousands of people across London.
What does this mean for you?
As a driver, you do not need to submit any evidence of your English language ability or take an English language test until Saturday 30th September.
We’ll be keeping you informed of any further changes and will be here to support you throughout this process if you need our help.
