New optional Taxi and Private Hire unit

We have added a new unit, J3RR 54 Taxi and Private Hire: The Licensing Regulations (London), as an alternative to the existing J1MH 54 Taxi and Private Hire: The Licensing Regulations (England) unit in the Level 2 Certificate in Introduction to the Role of the Professional Taxi and Private Hire Driver.

Any centre seeking approval from SQA to offer this new unit must provide evidence of training staff's knowledge and experience of the specific taxi regulations in London.

The Level 2 Certificate in Introduction to the Role of the Professional Taxi and Private Hire Driver is subject to enhanced quality assurance arrangements, as set out in Appendix 1 and 2 of Qualification Verification Process: Guidance for Centres.

We have updated the qualification specification document, which is available from our website.

We have also removed the guidance on overall grading from the assessment section of the Taxi and Private Hire: The Licensing Regulations (England) unit specification, as this is now held in the qualification specification.
