So the yearly renewing of the taxi licence has come arrived.
Get your papers together John !
Not as easy as it seems, I am looking everywhere I hope I will be ready.
Perhaps I will buy a motorised rickshaw instead.

I was telling a customer about it and he told me that they got a taxi one night and the driver was going around in cyrcles, when they were passing the same landmark for the third time they asked the driver to stop.
They gave him the choice of letting them out there and then or they would call the police.
They had come from Cork to attend a function, he had not one clue wher he was or where he was going.
I checked with them and they said that they did not pay him,

All that before you sit your PSV test in Spain.

I went to Amazin.
Its not all foreign drivers tht cause the problems, I know a good few Irish drivers who have the motto
"I go that extra mile"
Here is the mother of all taxi tests.
