Writer Jack Rosenthal's feature-length comedy about trainee cab-drivers in London. The story centres on a mismatched group of hopefuls as they are put through their paces on 'The Knowledge' - the special, gruelling test system that all black cab drivers have to pass before they can become fully-fledged cabbies. The candidates are ritually humiliated by the sadistic controller, but they each strive to overcome the odds and get their badges.
