Riding in a limousine is a fun, unique experience, but have you ever thought about driving one? A limousine driver gets to ride in style every day as they transport people to their destinations. Becoming a limo driver is not as difficult as you may think. If you are interested in starting a limo driver career, here are the qualifications you need.
You do not need any formal education to become a limo driver. Most companies will offer some sort of professional training courses specifically for aspiring limousine drivers. Though you don’t need formal education, you do need a chauffeur’s license, which is an endorsement on your regular license that allows you to drive professional vehicles.
In order to become a limo driver, you have to have a relatively clean driving record, It doesn’t necessarily have to be perfect, but too many violations can keep you from obtaining the job. You also must go through a background check so your criminal record should be clear as well. Not only should you have a clean record, you should maintain it. Limousine companies will regularly check both your background and driving record throughout your career.
It is good to have some experience in customer service, although it isn’t necessary. Providing good customer service and maintaining professional etiquette is just as important as being able to drive the limousine. You should always be on time and have the limousine ready for the guests that are entering. You should make sure that you open and close the doors for them as well. When driving, limit the amount of interaction you have between you and the clients, unless it is pertaining to an aspect of the service.
