Being a professional racing car driver is probably one of the best jobs you can get behind the wheel. But, if you weren’t born into it, getting into racing can be hard – far harder than simply sending in a CV like you can for other driver jobs. But, if you love the feeling of the road beneath your wheels, there are plenty of driver services that can act as a perfect outlet for your love of driving.
A driver agency offers a host of driver services to its clientele, and offer attractive driver rates that suit both its clients and its recruits. The hardest decision that you as a recruit have to make is deciding which type of driving job will most stoke your automotive appetite.
The Best Driver Jobs in the World
1. Long Haul Truck Drivers
Being a truck driver requires a great deal of vehicle control and accuracy, the ability to focus over long periods of time, patience, the ability to work long hours, and the knowledge of the laws and regulations surrounding long haul trucking. But, because of all of this, truck drivers receive good driver rates. In addition, they often have long stretches of open road all to themselves – perfect for any driving enthusiast.
Working as a private chauffeur or a driver for a chauffeur company can be a relatively lucrative position. Of course, driving limousines means that a chauffeur must have excellent manners and a good knowledge of his or her city, as asking directions is usually discouraged. However, GPS certainly makes this part easier.
Courier drivers are under a specific time crunch, and thus have to do their job regardless of weather conditions or other challenging factors. However, the routes they run mean that they get to see every part of their chosen cities and have plenty of social interaction when delivering parcels.
4. Intercity Bus Drivers
Like truckers, bus drivers that travel between cities get to frequently enjoy the open road – often at night. Their cargo is always precious, given that they are responsible for the lives of the people they are driving, but they have the satisfaction of meeting people from all walks of life and helping in their travels.
5. Taxi Cab Drivers
Drivers of taxi cabs are very involved in society and serve an eclectic clientele. They must be comfortable with city driving and have an extensive knowledge of the whole city, but the diverse array of passengers makes this particular driving job very rewarding.
