Driver FAQs

Do I need my own vehicle?

No. A2B will rent you a licensed vehicle ready to work, which you can keep to use in your own time for as long as you remain with the company. Alternatively you can purchase your own vehicle, A2B will give you advice and support on what to buy.

 

Do I need experience?

You do not necessarily need experience of driving a private hire vehicle. If you are enthusiastic, reliable, have a good knowledge of Solihull and Birmingham and speak good English, you are welcome to apply to become an A2B driver. You will need a Public Carriage Office licence in order to work for A2B.

 

How much will I earn?

The answer to this question is completely in your own hands. Naturally, the more journeys you complete, the more money you will receive. On average drivers work approximately 45 hours per week and, depending on when they work, the average take home pay after expenses would normally be £300 to £600

 

Will I be self-employed?

What equipment will I have in my car ?

All our vehicles have the latest in-car data systems with a map. We also have facilities like ring-back and text back to let customers know when you arrive.

 

What do I need to become a driver?

Before starting work with A2B, you will need to provide us with, a full clean driving licence and 2 forms of identification clearly showing your current address.
