American Master Cabbie is the largest taxi driver training center in the world.
The academy was founded in 1996 by Terry Gelber, a longtime Taxi driver himself. Terry recognized that new drivers would benefit most if they were taught by someone who’s been out there on the road and can bring real-life lessons to the classroom.
That was the spark that ignited Master Cabbie’s history 21 years ago.
Today, Master Cabbie has a staff of over 20 instructors, with classes going on seven days a week provided at two locations. Our original office is located in Long Island City, Queens, and our second location is in the Bronx. Both are easily accessible by public transportation. If you prefer to drive, either office is just a few minutes by car from Manhattan. See hours and contact information here.
