KOL is a piece of piss.

Been working out of Kings Cross and Hackney for last couple weeks and can now turn off the sat nav for most jobs in and out of Kings Cross.

Start on Islington this week and if it's just as easy, going to get the KOL squared away.

4 years don't make me laugh, i don't have any learning disabilities you know.

Come back when you don’t need the satnav at all .

Sorry Ubend.. I had never heard of Mr cheese, thought u was just taking the piss.

KC to MD is easy... for me I'd go north along york way, west dien Pancras road, south down mudland road and west onto to Euston road onto Marlebone.

Quick tenner, turn it off and back upto Urbennest for my next kings cross ping.

All jokes aside, this isn't a job for me. It's a tool that allows me to learn a new skill and challenge myself and earn at the same time.

I worked in the city for 12 years so not bad around Clerkenwell and and out of old street either.

My knowledge of actual popular places of interest is relatively poor though, like all commuters I justvtravelled in and oit then got wrecked at a weekend.

I'm very much a tourist myself in london alot of the time, I'm just loving driving around and learning about it as i go.

Level of entry does need to higher for private hire though. Shocking what i see some of them do.

Equally some BC's too, just looking out to give any prius with a yellow badge a hard time. Passengers see it and comment, they giving you decent guys a bad reputation.

Presuming you'd go south down york way then? Those lights are garbage, i find it quicker to go round the back and out from British Library.

It's on the same road is it not,
how did i get travelling west along Euston road wrong lol
You seemed to think you'd pass the kol in under 4 years after cracking most jobs in and out of Kings x in a few weeks (turning off your satnav as you're so confident). I asked 2 relatively easy questions from your chosen area, which you couldn't answer correctly. You don't get much if any feed back on appearances but I'll help you out. You need to leave that on the left, name all roads used (including the underpass) and name the roads needed to turn round setting down. That's the kol my friend.

Clearly you mistook the tone of my posts. I thought my humour was succintly apparent, apologies.

Thank you for not being too patronising though. Like I said, still learning just doing it in different way that you may have done.

No dramas, I'm new here but not to forums, I can take it it lol.

Serious question though.. Just googled the route retrospectively.

There's two clear routes... similar travelling times but prince albert road being a mile longer than ulster terrace route.

Anti clockwise would seem like a more comfortable and prettier ride for the passenger. Would you be expected just to do the shortest route, regardless?

Its always the shortest route (closest to the string line).

The shortest route isn't through or round the park. There is a raxi u-turn (gap in the central reservation) outside madam tussauds 😁

IMO no one is allowed to say anything about the KOL unless they made it to the stage of appearance at least
even if youre doing blue book
