These professionals must have excellent verbal communication skills, as they must interact with passengers, make conversation, and comprehend their directions. The taxi driver also must be proficient in arithmetic, as counting change for passengers is an important part of the job. The taxi driver must keep the car clean and may need some mechanical experience, as pre-driving inspections might be necessary.
