7 Things To Consider When Hiring A Driver For An Event

Hiring a driver for an event can be a great way to ensure your guests have the best time possible. It also means that you don’t have to worry about sending them off in taxis after the party; instead, you can send them all home safely and securely together in one large group! However, it’s essential to ensure that whoever you hire is qualified and experienced. Here are some things you need to consider when hiring a driver for your event:



1.First, make them prove they are a qualified driver.

A qualified chauffeur driver has the proper license, insurance and criminal record. The best way to ensure this is by having your potential driver/driver company present all of the above documentation before hiring them for your event. If you have doubts about their legitimacy, it’s best not to hire them!

2.Make sure they have emergency gear on board

Make sure they have emergency gear on board. It’s important to know that a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, spare tire and jack, and a contact list for emergency services are all required by law for your driver to carry. These items can help mitigate any unexpected issues that may arise during your trip.

3.Make sure they are insured to carry passengers!

Check to make sure that your chauffeur driver is insured to carry passengers. If not, you can get in trouble for hiring them. The purpose of insurance is to protect you and your belongings from any damage or injury caused by someone else. A good liability insurance policy should cover the following:

  • Damage to the vehicle
  • Damage to other people and their property (including cars)
  • The driver or passengers do damage while in transit
  • Injury or death of the driver or passengers during travel (whether it was intentional or accidental)

Make sure they have personal belongings coverage too! Driving around with expensive gear in two can be risky business. In addition to covering damage done by others on their property, many policies will also cover damage caused by theft within certain limits - usually up to around USD 10,000 per claim year (check with your insurance company).

4.Ask how much it will cost before agreeing to anything.

You will also want to ask how much it will cost before agreeing to anything. You should not be afraid to negotiate, but do not expect a discount for every vehicle or hire multiple drivers for a more extended period. Like any other kind of business transaction, haggling is part of the process, and you should be prepared with an offer that is fair (but not too low). If the price is too high, just walk away and find another affordable driver who can provide you with a better deal.

5.Do the drivers know about the area? Do they have GPS in case they get lost?

Does the Safer Driver know about the area? Do they have GPS in case they get lost?

If you’re driving somewhere new to you; it’s a good idea to check and make sure your driver knows their way around. If not, ensure they have a Safer Driver app, GPS or the ability to find one quickly if needed!



6.Find a qualified, insured and experienced driver with a suitable vehicle.

You should look for a qualified, insured, Safer Driver with a suitable vehicle. You can do this by asking them to provide you with the following information:

Their credentials.

References from other customers.

Proof of insurance coverage. It’s essential to check that they have adequate car liability insurance in case of an accident or if someone is injured while on board their vehicle. You should also ensure that their policy covers any property damage sustained during transit (if appropriate). Check the fine print to ensure it does not contain any exclusions for certain types of vehicles or locations where your event will take place (e.g., private roads).

Licenses required for the kind of transportation you need—this could include a chauffeur’s license, taxi license or bus operator’s license, among others—and proof that these have been renewed within the last two years at least (some states require more frequent renewal periods).
