The Knowledge is the in-depth study of London street routes and places of interest that taxicab-drivers must complete to obtain a licence to operate a black cab. It was instigated in 1851, and has changed little since.

It is the world's most demanding training course for taxicab-drivers; and applicants will usually need at least 12 'Appearances' (attempts at the final test), after preparation averaging 34 months, to pass the examination.

Your mate doesn't stand a chance to pass the Knowledge no matter how hard he tries!
