Taxi & Limo Drivers: Trust the Licensed Professionals

Lately it seems that taxi and limousine drivers have been taking a lot of heat as ride share and other online options have increased marketing efforts and popularity. If you are considering the best way to get to or from Pearson for an upcoming trip, consider the rigorous process involved in becoming a driver. Learning more about the training and requirements for our hard working team will help give you peace of mind and the confidence that you will reach the airport in a safe and timely manner. If you require a Markham airport taxi, or need a ride from anywhere else in the GTA, our drivers are available to pick you up. With GPS technology, our fleet is also equipped to confidently get you where you need to go.


Most people don’t consider the necessary training and processes that go into becoming a licensed cab driver when they are getting dropped off. If you need airport pickup and drop-off services and don’t want to deal with the unpredictability of ride share programs, call AirFlight Services. We offer reliable and experienced airport transportation services in Toronto that will ensure you arrive at Pearson International or get into the city safely. We hire only the best drivers for our professional limo and taxi services. Here are a few of the steps involved in becoming a licensed taxi driver:

Regulated Licensing

The current regulated licensing program in place has kept residents of Toronto and the GTA safe and has made cabs a reliable and efficient way to get around the city and to the airport for many years. All taxi and limousine drivers are licensed with Ontario G-class licenses and undergo security screenings and identification to ensure that the transportation company, government and the passengers are all informed about the driver and their qualifications.

Training Programs

Don’t get picked up by a new driver who is untrained and inexperienced behind the wheel. Toronto taxi drivers and all AirFlight Services drivers must complete and pass a 17-day taxicab training program that highlights passenger safety, defensive driving, and customer service. The course includes practical training for transporting passengers with disabilities and ensures that all drivers have completed a First Aid and CPR course. The same cannot be said of ride share programs that do not enforce specific licensing or insurance guidelines. Rather than risking your safety, choose a Pearson airport transportation company that is safe and reliable.

Medical and Legal Checks

You can trust that your driver has no history of impairing medical issues or criminal activity. All drivers must pass extensive criminal background checks, so you don’t have to worry about strange activity, unexpected stops, or your luggage coming in contact with illegal substances. Drivers must also have a medical certificate completed by a physician to ensure that they are not at risk for any incidents, episodes or health problems behind the wheel.


With options for every type of traveler and intensive security measures, you can count on a trusted airport limo or taxi service. If you need an efficient and affordable way to travel, rely on AirFlight Services. Our Toronto Pearson Airport transportation can make your next trip to or from the city safe and stress-free.
