Registration now open for chauffeurs' permit exam

foto 2023i taxisThe Office of Mobility of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that islanders have until 10 January to apply to take the exam to obtain the local chauffeurs' permit. Exams will be held 27 January 2023. Interested parties may sign up in person at the Citizen Information Office or online at the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC).

Details about conditions and the scope of the exam can be found here.

Aspiring taxi drivers must speak the two official languages (Catalan and Spanish) as well as two foreign languages – English and German, Italian or French. Examinees will answer questions related to the municipality of Formentera and rules governing the provision of urban and intercity passenger transport in light vehicles.

Rafael González, councillor of mobility, highlighted a second round of exams on 3 March. "We hope the two rounds will ensure that we once again have 49 permit-holding drivers to assure taxi service", he said.

Under the Public Passenger Vehicle Transport Action Plan, 49 chauffeurs (25 regular permit-holders and 24 seasonal permit-holders) will operate during the 2022-2023 season. According to González, "To improve the public service and ensure that supply fits with current needs, we agreed with the sector to increase total taxis by 29% from the summer 2021 baseline, when there were 25 regular and 13 seasonal permits."
