The total cost of applying for a permit with Auckland Co-operative Taxi Society Limited is $500.00 plus GST.  This cost is for initial training before going on the road.  A non-refundable fee of $75.00 plus GST must be paid at the time your application was lodged. The balance of $425.00  plus GSTis to be paid at the start of initial training.  This is to be completed prior to the driver permit being issued.

The permit test is in two parts. The first part is a 2 hour written test and comprising thirty questions. The second part is a practical drive test which is designed to test not only your knowledge of the Auckland CBD, but also your driving skills.

A study guide will be provided upon booking a time for the test. Upon passing the permit test, you are required to undergo the following training and assessment in order to achieve the permit criteria.

•  TM Training - Unit Standard 1748 Assisting Passengers with Special Needs. If you have done this proof will need to be provided.

Once all of the above has been completed, you are then ready for your permit to be issued. Permits will only be issued if you have a car to drive for or you have purchased your own share or are leasing a license.

To have your permit issued you are required to bring in:

•  2 Passport Sized Photographs (for your ID)
•  Passenger Service License (PSL)
•  Completed and signed employment form
•  Completed and signed database form
•  Area Knowledge certificates
