American Master Cabbie is the largest taxi driver training center in the world.
The TLC License school 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 three locations. Our original office is located in Long Island City, Queens, our second location is in the Bronx, and our third location is in Jersey City. All three are easily accessible by public transportation. If you prefer to drive, every office is just a few minutes by car from Manhattan.
