I'm seriously considering driving for traditional cab company. Its the same old tired excuse that I have..."You are losing money by driving for Uber"..that's the bottom line for me - so I'd like anyone to weigh in on the "Cab college" they offer for $150.00. Is it worth it ? Can I just find an online tutorial or study SF maps on my own or something ? I've just got very basic skills when it comes to navigating/knowing SF streets. Generally how much do you pay for the gate ? How much personal street knowledge is required to drive a yellow cab ? If anyone's driven a yellow cab in the city, i'd cheerfully accept some advise.
