How to Answer
If you've never been in an accident before, then that's great! If you have, then be honest about it. The interviewer is going to check your driving record, regardless; so, lying about it might cost you the job. Whether it was your fault or not, talk to the interviewer about the accident, what caused it, and the measures you take to avoid another incident like that. To end your response on a positive note, tell the interviewer that the accident has made you a more careful, attentive, and responsible driver.

How important is the cleanliness of your vehicle?

How to Answer
A clean car offers proof that the driver is attentive to their vehicle and committed to their job. Simply put, an unclean vehicle is an indicator of neglect. As a driver, this concept makes perfect sense to you, and you should tell your interviewer so. The standards of cleanliness you use for your personal car are the same that you apply to the company vehicle. You could even mention that it makes you happy when passengers comment on how clean your cab is!

Question 4 of 30
Have you ever had road rage? If so, what triggered it?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Road rage would raise a serious red flag for your interviewer. A cab company can't afford customers complaining about a driver who can't control his temper. Reassure the interviewer that this won't be a problem with you. Mention that you are quite capable of handling stressful situations and that your previous employer can attest to that.

Question 5 of 30
What is the safest speed, on our main highways?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know that you always obey the posted speed limits and that you do not come up with an excuse to speed on the highway, even when it's clear. Be sure to express the fact that the speed limit should never be broken, no matter the circumstance. You might also want to point out that, despite the speed limit being a specific rate, it is not always to safe to drive that fast.
