Do you drive for Uber or Lyft? You may find you're forced to do some safety training.

Toronto city staff are recommending a mandatory course for all ride-share and taxi drivers.

A city report, which needs the approval of council, suggests the training could include lessons on safety, urban driving, accessibility and anti-racism.

It doesn't say how long the training might take.

There used to be a 17-day training course for all vehicle-for-hire drivers. It was scrapped in 2016.
