New cab drivers must know English

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Being a cab driver in Palm Beach County just got a little harder.

Palm Beach County Commissioners approved a plan that requires all new drivers to speak and understand basic English. They'll also have to know the major streets.

You may remember a story we did a few weeks ago where we tested local drivers. Many didn't understand questions about major highways.

Current drivers would be grand-fathered in. The secretary of state should sign off on the plan in October.
