Forty Years Young

There’s an old saying: “Life begins at 40.” At Driver Hire that’s never been more true. During 2023 – whilst celebrating 40 years in business – Driver Hire enjoyed an outstanding year’s trading. Round the clock, 365 days of the year, we provided customers with the high-quality staff they needed to cover holidays, illness and unpredictable demand – and delivered vital training to thousands of drivers.

To put that into numbers, in 2023 Driver Hire:

• Supported 4,500 businesses across the UK
• Recruited 12,000+ new candidates
• Deployed 16,000+ candidates to cover over half a million shifts to keep the economy moving
• Delivered 52,000 Driver CPC driver training days online
• Helped more than 500 people who were looking to join the industry, through our licence acquisition training service or helped existing drivers upgrade their licence

We even found time to add to our existing training portfolio, introducing new IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health) approved health & safety training courses.

“2023 has been another excellent year for Driver Hire,” says Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s CEO for almost twenty of Driver Hire’s forty years. “And we’ve no intention of slowing down. Looking ahead to 2024, whether it’s just one shift, a long-term contract, or training services, Driver Hire will be there to meet our customers’ needs.”
