Taxis are always going to be in demand, regardless of the state of the economy. For this, and many other reasons, they are a great career for those who want a steady job that is well equipped to weather economic instability. There are plenty of other reasons to become a hackney driver too, here are just three of them:
Hackney taxi drivers play a very important role in modern societies. They are there to provide uniquely reliable, safe and efficient transport both to those who live in the city and visitors to the city. With this in mind, by becoming a  taxi driver you’re taking an active part in the quality of your city.
The nature of the job suits very independent people who like the idea of answering to themselves and working their own hours. You will be self-employed, which has numerous advantages over people on a wage. Driving a hackney taxi is not only very lucrative but can fit easily around your lifestyle.
Perhaps most importantly the actual job can be very interesting too. You will mean a wide range of interesting people and get to know your city in a very intimate way. Of course being a taxi driver is best suited to those who are reliable drivers and who have a good knowledge of their city.
The actual process of applying for taxi licences varies from local council to local council and so to pursue your interest you should speak to them first or consult a solicitor.
