Top Driving related questions
A personal driver transports passengers or goods from one place to another, making sure they arrive at their destination safely and on time. Personal drivers (or chauffeurs) are usually hired for special occasions, but hiring a driver for regular commutes or to run personal errands is becoming more and more common.
You might book a driving service because you don’t drive, don’t currently have access to a car, have airport transfers, or need someone to drive your car for you. Hiring a personal driver and vehicle could be a cheaper and quicker option than booking a cab or catching public transport.
Generally, there are no formal qualifications required, although all drivers must hold a valid Australian driving licence that’s appropriate for the vehicle they’re driving. Depending on your state or territory, your private driver may need a driver CPC if they provide driving services to the public.
Yes, many private drivers are experienced with transporting pets. Find a pet-friendly service by letting your driver know if your pet is travelling with you.
Some drivers provide baby and toddler seats, but discuss this with your driver before agreeing to hire them. It’s important to ensure that all babies and young children are suitably restrained with car seats or booster seats that are designed for their age and height.
The average cost of hiring a personal diver through Airtasker is $60-$220, but your service could cost more or less than this. Your cost will depend on the location, the distance you need to travel, the number of passengers, and how long you’d like to hire your personal driver for.
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant drivers licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
What does a driver for hire do?
Your driver for hire will get you (and your fellow passengers or items) to your destination safely. Here are some common transportation services and what you can expect when booking:
Don’t pay for airport parking or deal with airport traffic. Instead, book a driver service for airport pickup so you can get to your destination without a hassle. Your airport driver will need to know passenger numbers and the amount of luggage you’re travelling with. And if you’re travelling with small children, you’ll need to request a service with car seats if you don’t have your own. This way you’ll get a car and driver service that fits everyone and everything in it. For airport pickups, your driver will arrange a place to meet so you can connect in a busy airport environment. And for your airport drop off, they can pick you up from your home or hotel and navigate through traffic to get you to your flight on time.
A tour guide and driver service will get you and your fellow wine connoisseurs safely (and legally) from one winery to another. This service is great for couples, small groups, or larger parties. Just let your driver know how many passengers are along for the ride so you book a personal driver with the right number of seats in their car or bus. Most personal drivers are happy to work a half or full day. They’ll need to know how many wineries you plan on visiting and an approximate finishing time so they can plan their schedule and give you an accurate quote.
Lifts to home or work
Your private driver can help you get a ride home or a lift to work. A car rental and driver service can help with short trips to home and work addresses, even at the last minute. Your driver will need to know details like when you need transport, where you transport from, your destination, and (if they need to move your car) where it’s parked. If you do need a driver to take your car, include details on the make and model and whether it’s manual or automatic, that way you get drivers who are best suited to help with your task.
Got a parcel, package, or pet you need dropping off? Or need a driver and vehicle service to pick up some essential groceries? You can hire personal drivers near you to help with minor delivery services if you don’t have the time (or car) available to do it yourself. Your delivery driver will ask for information about the item you need transported or errand you need them to run, when you need it done, and the location for pickup and delivery. They’ll take care to carefully pack your item in their car so nothing gets broken, and will send through photos to show when and where the item’s been dropped off.
Whether you’re a learner, a new driver, or you’re looking to build your confidence behind the wheel, get the driving practice you need with a personal driver. Drive under the supervision of a fully-licenced driver in your own insured vehicle or in theirs. They’ll arrange a time and a pick-up and drop off location that suits you. During your driving practice, they’ll help by providing tips and guidance as an experienced driver to help you improve your driving skills. You can record your supervised driving time in your learner driver logbook, ensuring your supervisor signs off the entry at the end of the practice session.

Looking for someone to drive to work (Long term)
19th Feb 2024
I live in ballsbridge and work at the Belfield office park next to UCD. looking for a pick up and drop off service that can take me to and from work 2.5 days a week. Firstly the job description, I would like to emphasize that this job is long term and the price I have marked on the website is for four weeks. This price includes transporting me to and from work 2.5 days a week. (Equivalent to 5 one-way journeys between my home and work) Each journey will take approximately 10 minutes. You can also reconfirm the distance between the two based on the mapping software. We can fix a time for you to pick me up in the morning and evening, but perhaps we need to be flexible about the days I need a ride, and I will try to let you know in advance. My current thinking is two days in advance. For example, if I need a ride on Tuesday, I will contact you on Sunday to check if you are available on Tuesday.
