You need a learner's permit to drive in the state of Arizona. You need to drive with a parent or go to a driving school.
The way the taxi companies work out here is: You lease the car from them usually it is about $80 a day. They carry the insurance for the car. There isn't any permit that you need unless it is for a limo company. Then you would need a class C license to drive the limo. It is just a passenger car so you do not need a permit. The other poster wasn't even close. Other states like New York, you need a permit to drive a taxi.

Yes, driving a taxi with passengers in it needs it's own special permit.

Insurance on the taxi will not allow you to drive it.
