Hi, all...

Before I left for NYC, I had printed out a copy of the exam for taxi driver, but postponed doing anything until I could obviously attain an NY driver's license. So, I'm considering applying, but I was wondering if anyone can give me any insight or pointers, like maybe how close the actual exam is to the structure of the downloadable test, or any relevant information?

I'd be interested to hear from any cabbies who may be in here, what the job is REALLY like. I mean, I'm under no assumption that it's a glamorous job or anything like that, but I do very much love driving, I am an excellent driver, and I would love to make money driving, if possible. But I'm just curious to hear from people who have been through it, and are doing it.

Thanks, in advance, for any replies.

I cannot believe it is a particularly difficult exam.

My dad drove a NYC taxi for 28 years and loved it.

I found this on the web a few months ago. Dad says it pretty much sums the job up.
