The city council will modify some conditions for obtaining a municipal permit for the driving of passenger vehicles.
Taxi drivers from Benidorm will have to prove their knowledge of Spanish, Valencian and English.
Benidorm wants the neighbors and tourists of the city who get into their taxis to feel safe and comfortable, so it wants that when someone uses one of these vehicles can communicate perfectly with the driver.
Knowledge of languages
To this end, the city council has modified the rules and regulations for obtaining the municipal taxi driving licence, including as specific points, that applicants for this degree must have a certificate proving that they have a knowledge of all three languages.
If they do not have an accredited degree, they must demonstrate that they have at least some knowledge of these three languages that they will accredit during some tests to obtain the municipal permit by means of tests with questions in these languages so that they can answer correctly.
Tests for taxi drivers
These tests will consist of 20 questions with four answers each one of them will talk about aspects such as taxi regulations, operation of the taximeter and tariffs or knowledge of the physical environment as points of interest and locations in the municipality.
The number of calls for applications for this permit has also been reduced each year.
