Sample Taxi Driver Cover Letter

A clear and interesting taxi driver cover letter will go a long way to help you land the job you want. To get hired one must be able to communicate well with strangers, manage fares honestly, know the city streets, and be ready to offer advice about shopping, dining, theater, and sporting events all the while looking out for the safety of his or her passengers. The applicant here knows this profession well and focuses on those traits that will bring him the job. All taxi driver cover letters should take this approach.

Dear Mr. Snyder:

I've been a taxi driver for the past ten years in cities as large as New York and as small as West Chester, Ohio. I know the difference a 'cabbie' can make to a tourist or resident who must get to the airport on time, make the ball park before the first pitch, arrive at the theater with minutes before the curtain goes up, or walk into a business meeting with time to spare.

More important, that passenger wants to arrive at his or her destination safely and calmly. Excellent taxi drivers can deliver both. I'm one who qualifies. I know the streets of Austin, Texas as well as my own neighborhood--because I was born and raised here. I love this town and I enjoy interacting with residents and visitors.

If you hire me as one of the taxi drivers you've advertised for on instantjobs.com you won't regret it. I promise to drive safely, manage cash honestly, stay up to date with the changing dining, theater, and athletic events and converse with my passengers in a friendly and helpful manner.

May I drop by your office next Thursday between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. to discuss this position further? I look forward to meeting you. Please call 222-222-2222 to confirm. Thank your for taking a moment to read my cover letter.
