Suburban (Yellow Badge)

Skip to products

Suburban drivers (also known as Yellow Badge drivers) can choose from London's nine suburban sectors as shown below. They must know between 30 and 51 runs in detail. They also need to know all landmarks and places of interest on the runs.

It takes on average around two years to become a licensed Suburban taxi driver.

The sectors are based on borough boundaries and drivers with a Suburban licence can work only within the sector(s) for which they are licensed. Drivers may add additional sectors once licensed as you are only allowed to learn one sector at a time.
