Learning support and exam preparation resources for private hire drivers

Exam format and timings

There are two ISE I exam modules - Reading & Writing and Speaking & Listening.

  • The Reading & Writing part of the test is 2 hours long
  • The Speaking & Listening part of the test is 18 minutes long

For a Secure English Language Test (SELT), both modules are taken on the same day at a Trinity SELT Centre.

Remember to download and complete a Topic Form to take to the exam for discussion with the examiner.


Trinity provides a wide range of guidance, support and resources for ISE - see English language support for private hire drivers.

  • Other study materials are available from the Trinity Shop.
