Top Driving related questions

A private driver hire 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 licence that’s appropriate for the vehicle they’re driving. Depending on your state or territory, your private driver may need driver authorisation if they’re providing 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 private diver through Airtasker is $60-$275, 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 are driver services?

Your transport service 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:

Airport transfers
Don’t pay for airport parking or deal with airport traffic. Instead, book a transport service for airport pickup so you can get to your destination without a hassle. Your private 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 transport 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.

Winery tours 
A designated driver and vehicle 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 services 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 private 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 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.

Delivery services 
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.

Driving practice 
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 private 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.
