If you’re considering hiring a Private Driver or Chauffeur it’s prudent to think about what exactly you’d like the role to entail, as these days the job is about much more than a clean driving licence.

The Distinction Between Private Drivers and Chauffeurs
This can fall down to a mere question of terminology and preference, but in essence, a Driver is responsible for the vehicle, whilst a Chauffeur is also duty bound to its passengers – their safety, welfare and comfort. The term Chauffeur Driver can therefore give rise to a degree of confusion, but essentially it is used in reference to a Chauffeur – an experienced, licensed professional.

Chauffeur FAQ’s: The Traditional Chauffeur’s Role
Traditionally a Chauffeur is a skilled driver, employed to safely transport their employer as and when they need. That remains the case, but the modern-day Chauffeur – whether employed by a family or on a corporate basis – must also be skilled in a range of other areas.
As a bare minimum, Chauffeurs must be polite, professional, well organised, mechanically-minded and – importantly – discreet.
