Driving taxis is a great way to make a living or to supplement your income on a part-time basis. A.C. Taxi is always looking for eager, professional and courteous drivers. We have plenty of shifts available to meet all your needs.
A Class 4 or higher license. You will need to get what is called a professional drivers medical, which costs about $100, to take the driver’s test.
A Chauffeurs permit. The permit is issued by the RCMP traffic department. Permits currently cost $50 and include a Criminal Record check.
After you have all the proper licenses come on down to see us at our Administration office located at 835 Old Victoria Road. Your first test as a driver…. can you find us?
Nanaimo Taxi Company, A.C. Taxi trains all of the drivers eligible to drive “in house.” The in office training takes approximately 3-4 hours where we go over paper flow in AC Taxi Ltd. and the rules and regulations. Once you have completed the office training you will be paired up with an experienced driver where you will go on a “drive about”. The driver will take you around town showing you where and how we transport customers or parcels. After a time the driver will let you drive his/her taxi while he/she supervises your progress. At this point you are actually driving a taxi for hire. You will be picking up customers. New drivers are encouraged to ride along with an experienced driver until you are comfortable and feel you could drive on your own without supervision.
Then it’s up to you to decide how much you want to earn.
