This qualification covers topics like:

- Operating a community transport service
- Routinely cleaning passenger transport vehicles
- Planning routes in the Road Passenger Transport Industry.
To gain an NVQ, you need to show you've got a particular set of skills. You usually work with your training provider to review your current skills and find the best way to gain new ones - perhaps by trying new things at work, or by studying.
NVQs are assessed at work or in a simulated workplace. For each unit your assessor watches and asks questions as you perform a task, or looks at a portfolio of work that you've built as formal evidence of your learning. Then they confirm you've got the skills to do the job well.
For the NVQ in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving you'll also be assessed by assignments.
Is this level right for me?
This level is ideal if you are 19 or over and currently work as a taxi driver, chauffeur or driver in community transport or private hire. You want a recognised qualification and a chance to develop your skills further. You might plan to run your own driving business.
