The taxis in London are amazing. The iconic black Hackney Carriage cab is as famous as the yellow New York version but far more stylish if I can be as bold as to say. If you want your escort date to run smoothly then using a cab driver and his local knowledge will be a great help.
But why is this so? After all, New York cab drivers are opinionated and able to get you from A to B. What makes London taxi drivers so outstanding is something called The Knowledge. This is a test that requires drivers to be able to respond to verbal requests by an examiner about different routes and venues in London. The course is extensive, believed to be the hardest test for taxi drivers in the world and the average driver will take at least 12 exams before passing. These exams will come after nearly three years studying. Without passing the knowledge a London cab driver is not granted a licence!
So what do the drivers need to know and more importantly how can it help you on an escort date. All of the knowledge is contained in something known as the blue book. It is issued by the licensing authority and is actually pink, but what it contains is details of every street with in six miles of charring cross (that is 25,000 streets) plus all the major arterial routes in and out of London. It also covers all the points of interest within that area, so all the hotels, all the museums, restaurants, bars and in fact anywhere that a passenger is likely to want to go. Not only that but the knowledge includes all of the short cuts, stopping places and alternative routes so that a passenger and his escort date will be delivered on time and correctly to their desired location.
Not sure what the location is? Well you could do worse than hail a black cab and ask the driver for the best local restaurant, a good local Italian, a friendly bar or anything else you could want in the centre of London. Equipped with the knowledge you can be assured that his choice will be up to date and relevant as well as well informed.
Ask any of our London escort dates and they will tell you, the taxi drivers in the UK capital are the heartbeat of the city, and if you need to be somewhere in a hurry, or just want advice on where to go, a taxi driver will get you and your escort date their without delay.
