Becoming a Silver Top driver:
If you are seeking a new career path and wish to be your own boss, then why not become a Silver Top driver.
To become a driver, you first need to obtain a taxi driver accreditation from the Taxi Services Commission (TSC http://taxi.vic.gov.au/drivers/taxi-drivers/commercial-passenger-vehicle-and-bus-driver-accreditation) the TSC are the governing body of the Victorian Taxi Industry. You also need to apply for an Australian Business Number (ABN https://abr.gov.au/For-Business,-Super-funds---Charities/Applying-for-an-ABN/Apply-for-an-ABN/).
Once you have obtained an ABN number and become an accredited driver by the TSC, the next step is to book online a training session at Silver Top. The training session is free and is currently held on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00am and 2:00pm, the session runs for approximately two and half hours.
Existing driver’s wishing to join Silver Top:
If you are currently active with West Suburban taxis, Geelong Taxi Network or Frankston Radio Cabs, then you can attend Silver Top’s offices during business hours to obtain a pin.
If you are already an accredited driver with a driver accreditation number (DC) that begins with five or lower, then you can attend the Silver Top office during business hours to obtain a pin.
If your DC number begins with 6 and you have more than 3 months of driving experience with a Melbourne based Network Service Provider. Then attend the Silver Top office during business hours to obtain a pin.
If you have been affiliated with another network for less than three months or have previous driving experience outside of Melbourne, you will have to complete the Silver Top training session as instructed above.
