Frequently asked questions

What do I need to do to register with you?

You can set up job alerts by creating an account here. Alternatively if you prefer, you can give us a call or just pop in. Quality is at the heart of all we do so we take our candidate registration process very seriously. Before we can offer you work you will need to attend a face-to-face interview.

When you come in to see us, you will need to bring certain key information with you. You must provide your National Insurance number, bank details and another form of ID such as a passport or birth certificate. Where relevant you will need to provide proof of your right to work in the UK. For driving work we need to see your original driver’s licence (both parts if a photo card) and proof of any licence upgrades you hold.

We always take up references on every candidate so please also provide phone numbers of two work related referees.

What type of work can you offer me?

We can offer you a wide range of different jobs. As well as lots of driving work, across all licence categories, we are always recruiting for many non-driving roles. Whether you are looking for part time work, a contract role or a long term career, we can help. Check out our online jobs board, phone or call in to find out more.

How old do I have to be to work as a Driver Hire driver?

We welcome candidates of all ages. Please be aware that insurance requirements for certain roles mean that an age limit may apply to that particular role.

Are all your drivers fully compliant with relevant legislation?

Nothing is more important to Driver Hire than safety and full regulatory compliance. All Driver Hire drivers have to take a 150-point competency test before they are allowed to work for us and we provide ongoing updates on new rules and regulations as they are introduced. We also have bespoke IT systems in place to monitor the work our staff do for us.

You can be confident that any member of staff you take on from Driver Hire has been fully briefed on any relevant legislation.

Can you help me out at short notice?

Absolutely. Some people say it’s what we do best. As the UK’s leading specialist supplier of transport and logistics staff, we have an extensive database of high quality candidates ready to step in and help you out.

You can call us any time of the day or night, 365 days a year and speak to a real person on the other end of the line. We know the pressures you are likely to operate under, so will take down the details of the person you need and if we can’t tell you instantly who we have available, we will get back to you within 15 minutes with a definite answer either way.

Can you help with non-driving roles?

Yes. Driver Hire is about much more than driving. We can help you find the ideal candidate for just about any role connected with the transport and logistics industry. That includes drivers of course, but also warehouse staff, operations and back office roles, plant operatives, managerial staff and much more. Check out ‘Looking for Staff’ for more information.

Do you just provide temps?

No. Our experience in the industry and our extensive candidate database means we are ideally placed to help you find long-term contract staff and of course, permanent employees. Our permanent recruitment service operates on a no success no fee basis and is backed up by generous guarantees.
