Taxi Transport in London, England
London Black Cabs are the only taxi cabs in London licensed to ply for hire. They are easily recognisable although can come in other colours and shapes than the usual black we are used to! London Taxi drivers must undergo rigorous training before they are allowed take up their post. Drivers are licensed by the metropolitan police, and are all required to have extensive knowledge of London which takes up to 2/3 years to obtain.
It is recommended that tourists stick with the Black cabs rather than other minicabs or hackneys as they have been known to lead tourists astray!
