The Metro has an interesting blurb today talking about what it takes to be a Taxi driver in Boston. I've always wondered how it worked, so if you were wondering also, here are the 3 steps.
Step 1: Goto the Boston Police Headquarters
Criminal Record Check
Driving Record Check
10 Question test on the rules of the road
Step 2: Taxi School
3 day course at Roxbury Community College
Step 3: Get a Job
Find a local taxi fleet where you can lease a car per shift
$77 per 12 hours
$139 per 24 hours
$700 per week
The one question that I have, is how did any of the cab drivers I've ever ridden with pass the 10 question test on the rules of the road?
