As a driver, you are often the first person to make an impression on a visitor. It's important for drivers to “go the extra mile” to help our residents and visitors feel welcomed. Greet passengers with a smile, answer their questions about the Virgin Islands and let them know how happy you are to have them as guests.

For-hire drivers in the Virgin Islands must hold a valid Virgin Islands drivers license from the USVI Bureau of Motor Vehicles, a valid Taxicab license, and a valid vehicle registration in order to provide service. Every driver must be familiar with the rules and regulations in the Taxi Cab Commission handbook. If you do not have a handbook available, new handbooks may be purchased in person at the Taxi Cab Commission office.
