Employing experienced LGV Driver’ and Driver Trainers within our recruitment team, who have previously
worked for some of the major distribution and logistics firms, we have significant in-house expertise.

We, therefore, genuinely understand the pressures of running a fleet of commercial vehicles and the fact
that time is money when a vehicle is not operative.

24 Hour / 365 Day Service

As a result, we offer a fast response 24 hour / 365 day service which means we are always available, and it is this level of commitment which appeals to our enviable client base.

Extensive Register of Qualified Drivers

Our extensive register has listings of drivers for a wide variety of short and long-term contracts, itemised by the type of work they are available for, and this means we can often identify a suitable candidate in an instant. All drivers are carefully vetted using our meticulous pre-screening process, and a large percentage have been working with us for many years.

Driver Rescue Service

With the uncertainty of today’s traffic, many drivers are finding themselves running out of time on the way back to the depot. Many fleets cannot afford to have a stranded vehicle and driver out overnight with every vehicle needing to be run 24/7 to make it cost effective.

Direct Recruitment goes above and beyond most agencies by providing a driver rescue service to many of its clients. A professional Class 1 driver can be provided at very short notice with an additional car driver to pick up your driver and return them both safely to the depot.

Driver Negligence Cover

This insurance provides cover against claims in respect of damage caused to vehicles being driven by agency supplied drivers to their clients.

Driving Licence Checks

Checks made directly with the DVLA confirms whether the driver is licenced to drive and provides details of any endorsements and penalty points present on their driver record. Validating these details directly with the DVLA avoids drivers using fake or duplicate licences.
