I am a New York city TLC or Uber driver. Do you have any package for me ?

Already have a TLC license and am planning to drive Yellow taxi, Uber or Lyft. But I do not know where to start. We can help you with that. Our driver can give you tips on how to avoid traffic or how to make more money.

To drive in the Manhattan, you have to know all the avenues and streets. You should have clear ideas about avenues and street directions. Like if you have a passenger going uptown and you are on the east side, then you should take 1st Ave or 3rd Avenue.

Also you have to know how to cross the central park from east side to west side or west side to east side. How to get on FDR drive or west side highway. If you get an airport passenger, then should know which tunnel or bridge you have to take. Let’s say you picked up the passenger from 5th ave and 27th street. From there to Laguardia or JFK airport, you should take the midtown tunnel.

In addition you should know how to get on the highways. changing lanes and maintaining  the speed limit. Take the exit or go from one highway to another highway. How to use the GPS or Google maps.


What is the difference between driving in the city and highway driving ?

City driving :

  1. You have to focus on your speed. most of the city area 25 mile per hour. school or hospital area 15-20 mile per hour. while making right or left turn spped should be 5-7 mile per hour.

  3. More acceleration
  4. In city you will see lot of car double parking, you have to be careful about pedestrian. Delivery truck, school bus and yellow taxi or uber driver, bicyclists .
