Full Answer

A minimum qualification for a limo driver's job is a commercial driver's license. This type of license certifies an individual to drive passenger vehicles. Drivers must be prepared to transport groups of up to 16 people at a time. Obtaining a commercial license involves passing a road and written test, vision test and medical exam conducted by a certified doctor. Depending on the state of residence, a driver may also be required to pass a drug test and take a defensive driving course.

Driving a limo is not all about driving skills. Companies look for drivers with good people skills as well. This job requires drivers to interact with customers from the business and private sector. Drivers are expected to be courteous and friendly, with a clean appearance. Work happens at odd hours and is heavily focused on weekends. Upon acceptance, companies often provide on-the-job training for new drivers. Drivers are schooled on vehicles, navigating routes and customer service.
