The SPSV Skills Development Programme and Driver Testing

The National Transport Authority’s Skills Development Programme for SPSV operators is designed to help you develop the range of skills that you need to operate in the SPSV industry on a day-to-day basis. The Skills Development Programme is detailed in The Official Manual for Operating in the SPSV Industry.

The Skills Development Programme covers two areas:

SPSV operators are required to know the SPSV Regulations and to be familiar with good practice in the industry. You can read more about the Industry Knowledge Test here.

SPSV drivers are expected to have a good working knowledge of the county in which they operate. You can read more about the Area Knowledge Test here.

The SPSV Entry Test for New Entrants to the Industry

If you are a new applicant for an SPSV driver licence, you must complete the Skills Development Programme and pass the SPSV Entry Test, which covers both industry knowledge and area knowledge.

 

The Industry Knowledge Test

SPSV drivers who were licensed before the introduction of the Skills Development Programme are strongly encouraged to take the Industry Knowledge Test in order to obtain the Authority’s certification.

The Area Knowledge Test

If you already hold an SPSV driver licence and you wish to stand or ply for hire in a county other than the one in which you were originally licensed, you are required to take the Area Knowledge Test for that county.
