    "I drive a taxi./I am a taxi cap."

    When someone asks: What do you do?

    I drive a taxi.
    I am a taxi cap.

    Are both answers good?

    Where did you get "taxi cap" from? I've never heard it.
    A taxi is a taxi cab.

    No, if you say "I am a taxi cab" you are saying you are the car.

    I am a taxi driver.
    I drive a taxi.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
