Welcome to First Class Taxis the taxi licence leasing and taxi licence management specialists on the Gold Coast. First Class Taxis was incorporated in 1995 for the purpose of leasing and management of taxi licences on behalf of taxi licence investors. The fleet has grown from one taxi licence to today leasing and managing more than 75 taxi licences on behalf of taxi service licence (TSL) investors. First Class Taxis operates exclusively within the Gold Coast Taxi Service Area. Our speciality is the Gold Coast taxi industry. The business has grown since 1985 to become one of the largest family owned and independently run taxi depots in Australia.
Managing a taxi licence requires 24/7 monitoring and support. We offer a Queensland Transport & Main Roads (TMR) Approved Inspection Station (AIS 7710) licenced workshop for our taxi fleet as well as the public. We offer full mechanical and panel beating facilities together with Roadworthy Safety Certificates (RWC) and LPG Certificates. Our highly experienced and licenced mechanics are certified in LPG, Air Conditioning and the latest Green Technology Hybrid vehicles. Considered one of the most progressive and forward thinking taxi operators in the industry, we offer the highest standards and driver support to cater for each individual driver and taxi service licence (TSL) owners needs.
Our business operates out of a purposely built taxi depot workshop located adjacent to the M1 Motorway, at Burleigh Heads. The taxi depot has on site LPG refuelling facilities with a 24/7 Caltex Service Station next door. These facilities provide the driver the perfect changeover environment. As a taxi driver we will provide you with ongoing “on road training” to help you achieve your maximum earning potential. We fully understand that taxi drivers are paramount to the success of our business. The staff are extremely proud of the purposely built premises that offers drivers the latest and most modern change over facilities in Australia.
