Majority of drivers achieve NVQs
When you get into a taxi, you probably don’t think twice about what qualifications the person behind the wheel has.
It might seem like an easy job, driving people around all day, but in reality there’s much more to it than you might realise.
At Go Carz we want your experience inside our cars to be the best it can be so that’s why we introduced an NVQ qualification in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving at the start of this year.
We’re really pleased to say nearly every driver we have on our books has now passed.
The NVQ covers everything from driving in a professional manner and processing fares to helping disabled people and ensuring the health and safety of passengers.
We are confident having the qualification will mean our drivers are even more professional and giving an even better service to the public which is, after all, the most important thing.
We had already started the process of enrolling everyone on the qualification when a petition was launched in Wolverhampton calling for an improvement in driving standards across the city.
It’s always good for us to hear people’s comments and concerns so we welcomed the petition and were also really pleased to be able to let people know it was something we’d already started taking action on.
Because the industry isn’t very tightly legislated it can often be difficult for customers to distinguish between the different taxi firms. If you’ve had a bad experience with one, it might put you off using taxis in the future.
But at Go Carz we’re hoping to dispel any concerns about using a taxi and our NVQ qualification is just one of the ways we’re doing this.
It means we can be sure every one of our drivers is acting courteously and has all the health and safety knowledge they need to be able to ensure a safe and happy journey every time.
If you’ve got any questions about our qualifications, why not just give us a call?
