Fitness test is given the highest priority in the process of PCO license application. The TfL measures your health and fitness standards medically to ensure the safety traveling of customers.
If you want to be a minicab driver or London taxi driver, you must meet the medical standards required for a DVLA Group 2 license – these standards are put up for drivers of large goods vehicles and buses by the Transport for London. Significance of fitness levels cannot be over emphasized.
TfL expects from the applicants:
If you have this certified earlier, then you have an exemption.
Conditions such as heart problems, neurological disorders, history of alcohol or drug abuse, mental illness, degenerative illness, epilepsy, insulin-dependent diabetes, poor eyesight pave way for the refusal of PCO license.
If you are disabled, you can contact the TfL for specially abled transports and still get the PCO license.
