Customer Testimonials

I placed a late request for a driver to cover 14:00 – 23:00 from Friday to Tuesday. This request was fulfilled in a very short time considering the time.

Wayne, my driver, turned up at 13:30 each day, just to make sure he was on time considering the distance he was traveling. A courteous person and driver, Wayne soon settled into the way of driving Yotta requires.

Things which we do often come as a weird experience for drivers as we tend to do things which are not ‘normal’. Wayne soon picked up these ways and to the operator of the vehicle equipment this made my job so much easier, as I never had to worry what the driver would do next, nor did I end any day with tired legs from bracing or going for my non existent brake pedal.

Overall my experience with the Newark/Nottingham office this last week has been a very good one with office staff and driver doing an excellent job.

Should Yotta be in need of a driver from your office in future, I hope Wayne would be top of the list, I would certainly use him again and have no worries about recommending him to my colleagues.

UPS SCS – Grantham

I first used Driver Hire in 2001 when I worked for a local company based near Newark.  I had tried various agencies but none came close to the professionalism offered by Driver Hire.

When I joined UPS and required drivers for a contract in Grantham, I had no doubt that my first choice of agency would be Driver Hire.  There had been a personnel change in the office at Driver Hire but the service offered remained second to none.

There is always someone available whatever time day or night, and their honesty and integrity in providing the service should be commended.

I hope to continue using Driver Hire as my first choice agency for many years to come.

TNT – Nottingham – 

I have no hesitation in recommending Driver Hire as a preferred supplier. I have worked with Driver Hire for some time and have always found them to be knowledgeable in the business of temporary personnel.

They have always gone above and beyond to supply us with the resource we need to run our operation effectively. They are sensitive to our requirements and work closely with us, working hard on building and maintaining customer relationships.

Their insights and expertise have been a invaluable, they do whatever is necessary to make sure they provide an exceptional level of service, having someone to be able to speak to who are caring, willing and able at the end of a phone makes our job much easier.

Smiths Metal Centres – Nottingham

I took over as manager in 1983 at this site and for the first few years found it difficult to find an agency who could supply temporary driving staff without issues, we had many trials with different companies all promising that they were the best but none of them delivered what they had promised.

Eventually we tried Driver Hire and found they actually del what they said they would, the staff at the end of the phone were very helpful and the drivers we were sent lived up to our requirements.

Things have changed over the years but Driver Hires service hasn’t, they have continued to supply the level of service we need and the quality of drivers who can get the job done with the minimum of fuss.

We now employ our drivers at the is site through Driver Hire, not just o n a temporary basis to cove r holidays and illness and know the at they w ill look after us no matter what.

Unless there is a serious challange in the level of service Driver Hire provide, and I don’t expect that to happen, our relationship with them will continue long into the future.

Cygnet Catering – Nottingham

I first started using Driver Hire in 2007 when I worked for a local company in Nottingham. At the time I was using an independent company for my temporary staffing requirements and was experiencing all kinds of problems. It was time for a change.

Driver Hire came along and introduced themselves in a very professional manner with competitive rates and so I decided to give them a trial. I found the drivers I received were everything I would expect from an agency driver, polite, professional and always got the job done with minimal fuss.

When I moved to Cygnet Foods as the Transport Manager in 2011 I was never in doubt that I would continue using Driver Hire, by this time a few changes had taken place at the Nottingham office and in my opinion the service had become even better.

The office staff are nothing short of miracle workers in desperate times of need and have never failed to come up with a solution to supply us what we need, they will always go that extra mile.

We have also employed many of the Staff we have received from Driver Hire, first on a temp to perm and then moving on to our books.

I cherish my relationship with Driver Hire and I hope to continue using them for many years to come.

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 with non-driving roles?
