Be a 5 Star Driver

We want you to succeed and get more jobs, here are 7 tips to be a 5 Star Driver

Help with the Boot
Step out and help with the boot. The passenger would greatly appreciate your help for with their luggage, baby stroller and wheelchair.  

Hello, Good Morning, Thank You. Simple, Subtle Service

Use of GPS
Use Google Map or Waze to show traffic condition on your different possible route.

Keeping the car cool
Ask the passenger if the temperature is right for them.

Clean Car

Everybody like cars that are clean. Before the start of every driving day, do a quick dusting of my floor mat which should be filled with sand, leaves and dirt. Always keep some wet wipes in the car to clear off any bird droppings immediately.

Ask Preferred Route

Always ask passenger if they have a preferred route to the destination. Drivers cant be faulted for taking an inefficient route or getting caught in bad traffic if it is the passenger’s choice of route.

Keep calm and Drive on

As a professional driver, we should learn to control out emotions and behaviour on the road. Lashing out at other drivers reflects badly on ourselves even though the other party may be at fault. Passengers are only interested in getting to their destination comfortably, safely and on-time.
