Being unemployed just now, I'm looking into taxi driving as a stop gap. I think taxi driving is a good way to build up on your ability to deal with various types of customers.

You will need: 1) Good knowledge of the road network in your area/ sat-nav 2) A licence to pick people up straight off the street (if they have not booked in advance) 3) Yes, you will need a four door car really 4) Self-defence training would be useful for night work
