Second call for taxi drivers now under way

foto 2023ii taxisThe Office of Mobility of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce open registration for the second round of tests in 2023 to obtain the local chauffeurs' permit. The exam will take place on 3 March 2023. Interested parties can sign up in person at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) or online on the OVAC.

Information about prerequisites and areas that will be covered in the exam are available here.

Candidates must speak the two official languages, Catalan and Spanish, as well as two foreign languages, English and German, Italian or French. They must also answer questions about the municipality of Formentera and rules on urban and intercity passenger transport service in light vehicles.

Rafael González, mobility councillor, voiced his hope that the two rounds of exams would once again produce enough passing drivers to cover the 49 positions available. Under the Action Plan for Public Passenger Transport by Vehicle, in summer 2022 and 2023, taxi service will be provided by 25 drivers with ordinary licenses and 24 with seasonal licenses. The island's government and association of chauffeurs voted to expand the number of local cabs by 29% from summer 2021, when there were 25 ordinary and 13 seasonal licences. In Councillor González's words, the increase is designed to "improve the public service by tailoring supply to fit our current needs."
