Hi Joan,

You just would not use the inversion in this case for several reasons.

Firstly, it would be the wrong register for a taxi driver (or anyone of us) to use as the inversion always sounds more precious than using est-ce que for instance in everyday situations.

Also, it is very rare to use the first person inversion in a question as it sounds clumsy -

Dors-je? prends-je, sais-je, etc.

You will hear/read -

Puis-je,  dois-je, suis-je 

but in my opinion, they are to be used sparingly and it is best to concentrate on using 'est-ce que + statement' which is the most used formula for asking questions in France.

Hope this helps
