A little about us
Licensed London Taxis are professionally run by a group of ‘Iconic Black Cabbies’ with over 35 years experience.
In the early days as some of you will remember there were no GPS or internet, so all drivers had to learn their “knowledge” to get around the city of London. Unlike private hire firms, our drivers have the in-depth ‘knowledge of London’ and can therefore navigate immediately through traffic and roadworks to all destinations. Our vehicles are also permitted to use the London bus lanes.
‘The Knowledge of London’
Visitors to London can be assured of one thing – our cab drivers will know where they are going thanks to a rigorous test that takes years to master. 30 years to improve our knowledge of the area and to change and innovate to cater for the varying needs of our customers. With such extensive longstanding experience are able offer you most reliable, comfortable and safest travel experience at an affordable cost. Drivers go through rigorous training to get their badge, passing “The Knowledge”, a test which has been described as a bit like having a mental atlas of London in your head.
