Working as a chauffeur is about more than driving from point A to point B with passengers in the vehicle. Chauffeurs often work for individual clients and have to be aware of their changing needs and schedules as necessary. Some chauffeurs also serve as personal assistants or itinerary planners for their clients. In addition, chauffeurs need to have a basic knowledge of car maintenance and car safety in order to prevent breakdowns or automotive problems en route. Similar chauffeur jobs include positions such as Taxi Drivers.
Chauffeur Job Educational Requirement
In order to work in this position, aspiring chauffeurs will need to have a brief training period on the job. While high school diplomas are recommended but not necessarily required by employers, chauffeurs will need to have a personal driver's license and also a state or city chauffeur license, which typically includes a drug test. Other attributes that will be helpful for those in this line of work tend to be great communication skills, customer service skills and the ability to read maps and directions quickly and effectively. Chauffeurs in modern vehicles may have access to a GPS system, in which case they will have to be familiar with how it functions to navigate unfamiliar areas successfully.

Statistics predict that in the United States, the job growth for chauffeurs and taxi drivers will increase by 16 percent by 2022, which translates to an additional 36,200 positions within the industry as a whole.
Chauffeur Job SalariesSalaries for chauffeurs can fluctuate substantially depending on the employer and the type of work. In the United States, the median salary for both chauffeurs and taxi drivers is $25,241, but some transport agencies offer salaries as high as $72,000 annually for qualified drivers.
