Overview

A personal driver provides safe and efficient transportation for passengers from one location to another. They work to make sure that the service they provide is comfortable and professional, all whilst keeping track of traffic and timing.

Personal drivers can work for an agency, corporation (such as Uber) or for an individual, and will use either their own vehicle or one supplied by their employer. Their typical duties will differ slightly depending on their employer. However, they will normally be responsible for navigating their car (and the passengers on board) to the desired destination in the most effective way, all whilst providing professional customer service. They will also be responsible for the maintenance of both the inside and outside of the vehicle and will have to keep on top of paperwork.

The only real negative of being a personal driver is the long and antisocial hours and the occasional unpredictable situation (e.g., traffic or accidents). The positives, however, are in abundance. For example, there is no educational requirement to becoming a personal driver; you just need a clean driver?s license and sometimes some relevant work experience. Personal drivers are also in demand, and this demand is rising, meaning that there is not much competition for jobs. You will also get to see lots of different places and meet lots of different people.

To be a successful personal driver, you must have excellent customer service and interpersonal skills as you will be transporting people around all day, every day. You will also need to show attention to detail, the ability to navigate and you will need an extensive knowledge of the local neighbourhood. So, if you like to drive and are looking for an exciting, flexible and fast-paced career, then look no further?
