About This Course
What is a Topographical Test?
Topography is the study of the shape and features of land surfaces. In the context of the TfL topographical test, this essentially means demonstrating that you understand how to use maps. The test contains 4 key modules on map-reading.
Once you have submitted your TfL private hire application, you will be invited to book in for a topographical (map-reading) test. You can prepare thoroughly beforehand with our in-person preparation sessions.
