Driver Hire Franchise

Group of Driver Hire franchisees

Be the driving force in your own life & build upon our franchise success

With over 30 years in the industry, Driver Hire is a force to be reckoned with. Not only are we one of the leading recruitment businesses for drivers and logistics staff in the UK, but we are also a multi-award winning franchise with a brand name that opens clients’ doors.

Since 1987 we have seen our franchise network successfully grow thanks to our thoroughly tried-and-tested franchise model which consistently generates high returns for our franchise owners. For example, have at look at our financial year 2018/19:

  • 90% of Driver Hire franchises achieved sales of over £500,000
  • 76% achieved sales over £750,000
  • 53% achieved sales over £1million
  • The Driver Hire franchised office average turnover was £1,214,978

A great achievement when you consider that the franchise industry’s’ average turnover is currently only £400,000 according to the 2018 bfa/NatWest survey.

Manage your own franchise within a lucrative market

As a Driver Hire franchise owner you would essentially manage a recruitment business. On a day-to-day basis, you would source drivers and logistics staff looking for work and then refer them to your clients.

These clients are often multi-national freight companies, such as builder merchants, parcel carriers and local authorities, looking for a flexible workforce. The market, within which we work, is huge - the UK recruitment industry is estimated to be worth £35.7 billion a year. With our highly recognisable and respected brand, doors are opened to our franchisees that would not be opened to many other businesses.

Driver Hire franchisee Jamie WilliamsonWe know that we offer a fantastic franchise offering but don’t just take our word for it. Hear what some of our franchisees are saying.

"My quality of life has improved, I'm the one in control of my own destiny and I'm no longer reliant on the decisions of others. If you're going to work you might as well enjoy it. I'd absolutely buy a Driver Hire franchise again. In fact, I wish I'd looked into it earlier!" Jamie Williamson from Driver Hire Portsmouth


Driver Hire franchisee Gary Riches"Running my own business, being my own boss means I now have a lot more control over my destiny. It's hard work but with a positive can-do attitude I know I've made the right choice for me and my family for the future. I never stop thinking about the business. On the other hand, I am now physically working fewer hours than I did in previous jobs. I love what I do." Gary Riches from Driver Hire Colchester:
