Who is Driving Your Limo?

The driver of your limo seems to have a rather glamorous job, doesn’t he or she? They get to drive around town in a luxurious car, toting passengers who are celebrating anniversaries, going to the prom or recently married. They also get to transport some of the rich and famous. Just who is this person behind the wheel?

- Training and education: The chauffeur of a limousine must have a variety of licenses in order to be employed. First of all, they must have a standard motorist’s license to take their expertise to the next level. The next tier of licensure is the CDL which stands for Commercial Driver’s License. If the operator is going to be transporting sixteen passengers at once, including themselves, they would need a “P” classification, meaning “passengers.” Stretch limousines are able to carry large groups of people at one time, as traveling parties have become a popular use of these stretch vehicles. Education requirements vary between states and companies. In some regions, there is a regulation of 80 classroom hours in addition to on-the-job training time. Being able to communicate well in English is another important job skill if employed in the U.S.A.

- Duties: A taxi operator has different duties than a chauffeur. A person behind the wheel of a taxi cab works unpredictable hours for a large variety of customers. A chauffeur often drives a luxury automobile such as a stretch limo, a stretched out Hummer or a Lincoln town car. Chauffeurs’ gigs are usually arranged in advance and its drivers are usually not available on demand like a taxi cab.

- Special abilities: In order to perform competently in this job, your driver must know the streets quite well, having a good motor vehicle operating record, have exceptional social skills and be prompt and reliable.

- Uniforms: Formal clothing is required for drivers of limousines. Tuxedos or dressy suits or gowns are a “must have” when transporting customers clad in their own finery. While the stereotypical concept of the person behind the wheel is a man, either gender may perform this job with elegance and competence.

- Background check: Many states and companies require background checks on their limo drivers. Not only must these individuals have clean driving records, they must have clean criminal records, as well.

- Driving Test: In addition to classroom hours of training, before stepping behind the limousine’s wheel, the operator must pass a physical vehicular operating exam. Emergency maneuvers, dealing with traffic and inclement weather all must be competently handled before employment in this field.

- Salaries: As glamorous as this occupation may seem, the salaries are relatively low. A chauffeur averages approximately $20,000 to $30,000 per year although the owners of a limousine business may make substantially more. Most drivers make hefty tips from their customers, especially if they offer exemplary courtesy and skill on the road with their customers.

Who is the operator of your limo? Someone who works hard, has several licenses, has earned a good safety record and deserves a nice tip.

Everyone needs a New Orleans limo to celebrate their special New Orleans event because celebration is a big part of life in New Orleans. For more information please see:
