Become a Richardsons Taxi Driver
While there are no minimum qualifications to become a taxi driver, to successfully obtain a license you need to be at least 25 years of age and hold a clean driving license.
You’ll need to pass a medical test – conditions such as epilepsy, poor eyesight, insulin-treated diabetes and serious heart problems could result in an application being refused.
OK, I’m interested… But is it really the job for me?
Only conscientious, careful drivers are required, so if you suffer from road rage or can’t stop speeding then this may not be the right choice for you.
Other skills that will help you in the profession are:
- Good standard of spoken English
- Great memory
- Great customer service skills
- The ability to keep your composure when dealing with unruly passengers
