Taxi Driver Job Description

*Driving a taxi requires a certain level of enthusiasm and an ability to satisfy customers.

*A taxi driver’s main task is to provide transportation to paying customers from one destination to another destination of their choosing.

*Handling baggage or some other type of cargo may be involved.

*Taxi drivers obtain new customers by responding to hand signals, by responding to dispatches, phone calls or computer messages from the actual cab company about new customers, and by frequenting areas with hotels, airports and other places most likely to have people in need of transportation.

Duties and Responsibilities

*Transporting passengers to and from various locations is the main responsibility of the taxi driver.

*Drivers should also be friendly and courteous to clients as it is a part of good customer service and effects the client’s decision to leave a tip.

*Drivers need to be as helpful as possible to passengers.

*Taxi drivers need to have thorough knowledge of the city and surrounding area.

*It is important to keep a map in the vehicle for reference.

*A navigational device is also useful, though it may be best not to have it installed on the dashboard for safety reasons, but kept nearby.

*A map or navigational device are especially helpful to drivers in larger cities and areas that are continuously changing and expanding.

Training and Education

*There are no special education requirements needed to become a taxi driver.

*Many cab companies want drivers to have at least an eight grade education, though a high school diploma is most preferred.

*Drivers must be at least 21 years of age, 25 years of age in some places, and have a clean driving record.
