Hi all. So I’m after a change.
Always thought of taxi driving and now I feel like going in a new direction.
Is there decent money in taxi driving? I know it’s a case of you get out what you put in, but in general, would it be worth
Trading in my garden rake for a taxi? Lol

Thanks for any advice.

Thinking of changing my job, I think I will take on a job/occupation that will probably put me at more risk of catching this virus thingy that is floating around and also where nobody is earning a good living Because nobody is going out and using taxis #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o

Now isn't exactly the best time to join the trade, but it is different from area to area.

In some areas operators are desperate for cars to join their firms (actually I think that's every area), but sometimes some operators have been known to be out and out fibbers.

Basically the more unsociable hours you work the more you will earn. Is that enough all depends on what you need to pay the bills.

Of course there is nothing stopping you from doing both your current job and working a taxi, although we in the trade do prefer folks to be full-time. :wink:

Thats because many operators would rather have a driver earning chick feed wages rather than turn a run down.
