Payment in full is required on the second evening of each course. Failure to make this payment will not allow you to continue any further with the course, unless other arrangements have been made with the Manager.
You may choose to make application to Queensland Transport for Driver Authorisation prior to commencement of the training course which will shorten the overall time period before actually driving a Taxi. Queensland Transport requires time to complete their necessary checks on you in regard to your CIB, medical and driving history. (Forms available at Qld Transport or Garden City Cabs)
The training course includes several tests including the driver theory test, locality test and final examination. The Drivers Hand books used during the course must be left in the training room at the end of the course. Please take note that Garden City Cabs do not employ any drivers - all of our drivers are engaged on a Bailor / Bailee basis and any arrangements regarding the driving of a cab are to be made with the taxi operator. Garden City Cabs will introduce trainees to our taxi operators seeking drivers. Garden City Cabs reserves the right to alter amend or cancel any intended training course due to circumstances that may or may not be within its control.
