Drivers and Vehicles
All drivers working for Auckland Taxi Service must meet pre-set standards before starting employment. They must then participate in regular training and assessments to ensure the level of service we give our clients is kept to the highest possible standard.
To start with, potential drivers must have an Auckland metropolitan Area Knowledge Certificate. These are issued by the NZ Transport Agency after a driver successfully passes a test demonstrating their knowledge of the area and ability to communicate in English. We also vet our drivers and put them through a driving assessment. Drivers then receive ongoing training in areas such as health and safety, basic car maintenance, and customer service. They are also regularly assessed to review their performance and proficiency.
Our fleet of vehicles is modern and well maintained. We also keep the fleet new, regularly replacing older vehicles with new models. Most of our taxis are less than three years old. They are all serviced as per the manufacturer’s guidelines, and they are equipped with the latest technologies in the taxi industry. This includes tracking and dispatch systems so we can ensure you are sent the car closest to your location.
We also offer technologies that are not standard within the taxi industry, but which will enhance your experience. This includes in-vehicle Wi-Fi so you can access the internet, check emails, or browse social media while in the car.
Within the fleet we have cars, but station wagons are available if you need more luggage space. Vans are available too, with seating for up to nine passengers. Plus we have executive class vehicles available. You can request any type of vehicle when you make your taxi booking.
