The Knowledge of London
“Come back in 56 days Mr Cox. You’ve got a lot to learn. Leave the door open on your way out.”
That was Mr Ormes to me on my first appearance. He was bloody right!!
To become a London taxi driver you have to complete The Knowledge of London!
You need to master no fewer than 320 basic routes, all of the 25,000 streets and approximately 20,000 landmarks and places of public interest that are located within a six-mile radius of Charing Cross. It takes the average person between 3 and 4 years to learn The Knowledge.
