Together, let's make a better
industry for customers and drivers

Find out what we do for our industry

Until the playing field can be levelled, we need to be allowed to compete for drivers and we can’t do this with the Knowledge test as it stands.

CEO David Samuel

There are obviously a number of serious challenges facing our industry at this point in time. While it’s always hard to say which are of the most significant, it is clear the one that must be addressed immediately is the number of both available and new taxi drivers. The common dominator really appears to be the Knowledge test. Unless the Government can ensure that all who compete for the same work follow the same rules, regulatory impositions and arrangements such as this simply have to be removed or suspended until there is a resolution.

How can we expect to compete when new market entrants do not follow the same rules that protect customers and do not adhere to the many regulatory requirements imposed on the taxi and hire car industries?
