How to Answer

You can answer this question from a more personal perspective to allow the interviewer to get to know you a bit better. Perhaps you looked up to your uncle who was a skilled truck driver, or maybe you enjoy being in the driver's seat. Talk to the interviewer about your passion for a driving-related career. As the interviewer knows, most of the time, people who genuinely love their jobs are great at it and perform consistently as model employees.

Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"Driving has always been a passion for me as it allows me to see and meet new people. I feel at ease driving passengers to their destinations. It is an enjoyable career, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a taxi driver."

Answer example

"After spending fifteen years on the road as a long-haul truck driver, I decided to look for a career that kept me closer to home but still incorporated driving for a living. Through research, I read how fulfilling a career as a taxi driver can be. This career change gives me the opportunity to dial down the amount of time I am away from my family. I can set my schedule for the most part, and still earn a good living."
