So you are thinking of doing the knowledge of London to become a London Black Taxi Driver and you have heard of the blue book runs but where do you buy them. There are many places that sell the actual runs, the Blue Book is issued to you by the P.C.O or Public Carriage Office when you go for your initial talk. As has been mentioned on here the blue book the P.C.O issue you with does not contain the actual runs it is just a list of all the runs. You could take the blue book and just o out and do the runs and try and find the best route but this would be pretty time consuming. So what do you do, well you simply buy a set of blue book runs that have already been done then you can follow the run instead of trying to work out the best route for each run.
Right so you know you will need some blue book runs but how do you buy them and from where, well as I mentioned there are a lot of places that sell them but it depends what you want, if you want them on paper, not recommended, then you can expect to pay around £70 – £80. Some places sell them in “Modules” with around 80 runs per module, now these cost about £20 per module and there are 4 modules. So although it seems cheaper you will in fact still be paying about £70 – £80.
The best thing to do is to get the runs in digital form so they are easily updated without ruining the run itself, also if you were out and some little herbert nicks them off you bike, you would need to replace them, if they nick them and you have them on your computer at home no big deal simply print out new runs. Also having them on your computer makes it easy to “update” them then next time you have a fresh updated run.
