Do I have to work set shifts?

Addison Lee driver jobs are completely flexible. Work the hours that suit you best. There are periods during the week where we are busier and specific incentives are in place to encourage drivers to work. During the week, we are particularly busy during the early morning and evening periods and at weekends we are very busy later in the evening.

Do I need to provide my own vehicle and will I pay for fuel?

Unlike other car driver jobs we offer a vehicle rental scheme, where the more journeys you complete the cheaper the weekly vehicle rental charges become. Addison Lee vehicles are all typically less than 3 years old and are regularly maintained by our dedicated service technicians. This means that the hassle of organising insurance, MOT and PHV checks, repairs or replacement vehicle will be taken care of for you, allowing you to stay on the road and never miss an opportunity to earn more money. As a self-employed driver it is your responsibility to hire a vehicle and to pay for the fuel and other costs.

How do I get paid?

Customers pay for their journeys in two ways, so there are two ways we pay you. Simple.

Account transactions

Account customers pay us directly via their accounts. We’ll add this money up and pay it into your bank each week.

Non Account transactions

For cash jobs, the money is paid directly to drivers and for card jobs it is paid into your bank account each week.

What do I need to become a driver?

You will need to provide us with your driving licence (either your paper licence or photocard licence), your PCO license (both parts) and 2 forms of identification clearly showing your current address. We can provide advice on the PCO license process, please contact driver recruitment on 0207 255 4204 or alternatively email driverrecruitment@addisonlee.com for more information.

What experience do I need?

Above all, we look for enthusiasm and reliability in drivers. Experience with private hire driver jobs is not necessary as we encourage new drivers in the industry to join Addison Lee and we will provide industry leading training. You will need to apply for a PCO licence via Transport for London.

Who are Addison Lee?

Addison Lee is the world’s largest managed premium car service. It has more than 80% of the FTSE 100 as customers. It was the first UK ground transport business to launch a booking app. It carries over 10 million London passengers per year. Over 4,800 cars in central London. It operates a ULEZ-compliant fleet, and set up its Greener Future Programme to invest in environmental improvement initiatives in the communities in which it operates and overseas. The passenger and courier fleet’s emissions are 100% offset. It has London’s largest executive fleet of Mercedes cars. A consortium led by Liam Griffin (CEO) and Cheyne Capital’s Strategic Value Credit business completed a buy-out of the company in March 2020.

Will I be self-employed?

Yes. All Addison Lee drivers are self-employed and responsible for their own tax and national insurance.
