Hire a Chauffeur or Personal Driver

This article is dedicated to those looking to hire a personal driver.

The ability to simply not mind about transportation is a major life improvement, whether you are a CEO, a hotel guest or members of a family. Having someone else pay attention to navigation, traffic and parking places reduces a lot of stress and mental bandwidth from you. Another critical aspect is avoiding public transport which mitigates any illness risks and simplifies everything if you or your guests carry luggage. Read here all the benefits of hiring a chauffeur.

The Expected Chauffeur’s Salary

HazeltonClive allows employers to discuss the terms of their salary with candidates – unlike some other staffing service providers. This means you probably want to know how much a personal driver expects to earn.


Many personal drivers will earn £40,000 to £55,000 per annum, but more experienced drivers and ones with a security background will expect a gross annual salary of £60,000+. Although, the exact salary will depend on many things, which is why we will find the chauffeur that will fit your budget and lifestyle.
