Applications for chauffeurs’ licences now being accepted

taxis-2020taxi-formenterajThe Formentera Department of Mobility announces the first round of competitive exams to obtain a local taxi permit.

Registration for the 4 March session began last Friday 7 February and will continue through the end of the day on Thursday the 20th. A second round of exams is scheduled for 1 April 2020, with registration opening ten days prior on 20 February.

Interested parties should visit the Citizen's Information Office (Oficina d’Atenció Ciutadana, or OAC) at Carrer Ramon Llull, 6, in Sant Francesc, or online via the OVAC. Once registration is closed, a provisional list of accepted and rejected students will be posted to the Consell de Formentera bulletin board and website.

Transport public on the rise
Highlighting forecasts this year of increased demand for cab drivers, mobility councillor Rafael González encouraged all those who might be interested to take the test. The local taxi fleet will grow by 17% in 2020, taking on an extra 6 vehicles. González said the change was about offering islanders and tourists “a better public service, and more mobility options”. Moreover, the new additions will be hybrids, “bringing them one step closer to sustainability”, said the councillor.
