What is the Passenger Transport Academy?

The Academy was set up as a social to promote the interests of those operating and training in passenger transport and to promote professionalism and standards within the industry.

The Academy was formed by industry experts following  shocking examples of poor quality or even corruption in the training being delivered around the country in some sectors. Poor training does the industry no good and the Academy is striving to improve the standards to ensure that training is delivered by industry experts with in-depth knowledge.

We have been quietly working behind the scenes for some time with local authority and industry partners to ensure that our views are heard including by local and national government.

Our offer a national qualification for taxi and private hire drivers. Read our pamphlet!
