It really is not that hard to get a chauffeur’s license here in Toronto. The really big part is just being able to pass a background check. Not really sure how that matters for the license. For example I can see why the guy who owned a limousine service in toronto would not want to hire a felon or such to drive a car that might be worth as much as a small house. I do not really see what the municipal government would care, although obviously there is a public safety aspect to this in some regards. You would have a lot of people in the vehicle in some of these limos. The largest ones must carry around a dozen people at one time and of course they make stretched vans and party buses that can probably carry even more people at once. In the USA I think you would probably need a class A Commercial Driver’s license to drive a vehicle with a large passenger capacity.
Obviously you would want to do a background check on a guy before you gave him the key to a big van with fifteen people in it. It could be a crazy person perhaps, some guy who might do some crazy thing with all of these people in his care. Or I would guess that you would want to be sure it was not someone with a number of different medical conditions which could potentially cause them to lose control over their conscious thought. That does not sound right honestly, but I mean stuff like epilepsy where a guy might have a seizure while he is driving. I am not sure what the rules about that are when you are talking about driving a private vehicle, but they surely have rules against it for commercial vehicles.Read more
