B1 English

Trinity College B1 English Assessment


The Trinity Integrated Skills in English exam (ISE I), is approved by Transport for London for Private Hire Drivers to evidence B1 level proficiency in English.  Driver Periodic Training is now a listed SELT (Secure English Language Test)  course provider with Trinity College.  This now means you can study for your B1 exam along with your Topographical training in one location, and not have to travel to different venues around London.

We are your ONE STOP SHOP for all things to do with Private Hire Licensing 

Your English exam is in 2 parts:

  • Task 2 – Conversation – 2mins on one of the set topics

Our one day Preparation Course is just that – we will take you through what is required, how to prepare your Topic including the Trinity College Topic sheet which has to be handed in to your examiner, tell you what the set topics are for the conversation and let you practice taking notes for the Independent Listening phase.  During the course you will work through some sample exams and we will evaluate your progress to let you know if you are ready to take the exam.  If we feel you are not ready, we will signpost the areas where we feel you need to practice more.  Once you are ready, we will book your test for you at one of the 3 test centres in London and ensure that TfL are updated on your pass.  Your certificate will come directly to us and we can notify TfL the same day.

Remember – time is running out.  A number of drivers have to provide this information by July
