Assessment guidelines

The Topographical assessment guidelines provide more details about the assessment. Your assessment could be carried out in paper format, or may be computer based. If your assessment is computer based, you will need a basic understanding of how to use a mouse.

A guide to plotting a route

We have produced a short video to provide guidance on how you may be expected to plot a route within the online assessment.

Special requirements and reasonable adjustments

TfL offer a wide range of reasonable adjustments that are tailored to the individual to ensure that assessments are carried out in a fair and consistent manner.

If you have a disability or condition which means you will need adjustments to be made at your assessment then you will be invited to provide us with a brief outline of the condition and documented evidence from a relevant professional, once assessments are taking place again. Please see the top of this page for more information.

TfL-approved assessment centre scheme

When we began inviting applications for approved assessment centres in August 2016, we committed to regularly reviewing the scheme to ensure that the number of centres meet the demand, and that we may sometimes stop accepting applications as a result of those reviews.

As the current level of demand for assessments is being met, we closed the window for applications at midnight on 19 January 2017. If demand increases in the future, this decision will be reviewed.
