The basics…

To be brutally honest, this sort of work doesn’t suit everyone…

So, let’s get down to the basics…

  1. The work of a Designated Driver is casual by nature – we can only offer drivers work when there are customers who need their vehicles driven home.

  2. That means that you may be on call some evening and yet get no jobs… that’s just way it is. Other nights you could be very busy.

  3. Most of the work is on Friday and Saturday nights – because that’s when more people tend to go out.

  4. The key job of a designated driver is to get our clients home safely – but is also important that you can handle customers who have had a few drinks and may say things that might come across as a bit blunt or insensitive. If you think this might be a problem for you, then being a Designated Driver may not be right for you. In this business, Customer Service is key!

  5. Some of our more successful, long-term drivers take a philosophical approach towards how they earn money from providing this service. For them, they like driving and meeting new people – some nights they will get paid more than other nights, but they look at it over the longer term.

  6. As the business grows, the distances that drivers will have to travel to get to and from driving jobs will reduce. In the meantime, occasionally you may need to travel some distance to get to a job. We will do our best to minimise these occasions and ‘share’ them around to other drivers.

  7. Last but not least… How much can you earn? A pair of drivers will average $60 per job. That is an average of $30 for each driver. Some jobs will be more, some will be less – that’s the average.
