Benefits of being a delivery driver

For example, there are no start-up costs so you can get started straight away. You will be given daily advice about your earnings, as well as self-billing. You will also have lots of support from a local team around you about any queries you may have as well as the chance to increase your driving routes so that you can make even more money if you need to do so.
Are you qualified?
Before you consider applying for the position of being an owner driver, you will need to make sure that you are qualified to do the job. The first thing you will need is a valid driving licence, otherwise there is definitely no way you will be able to do this job! You will also need a commercial vehicle that is less than five years old. Make sure that you have a good grasp of the English language too - both written and orally - and be sure that you will pass a screening and vetting audit successfully. This audit will make sure that everything on your CV is up-to-date and correct and that you are definitely able to work in the UK. If you think you have all these things sorted then you are ready to get applying!
One of the great things about applying to becoming a delivery driver is that the process is extremely simple. Just go on to the UK Mail site where you will be able to find an owner driver icon. You will then be asked to fill in your details and be sent an application pack in the post. Once you have sent this back using the pre-paid envelope, you should be called in for an interview by one of the site managers.
If this goes well, then you are ready to begin your training to become a delivery driver! This will be carried out through an Owner Driver Education Programme. Once this has been successfully completed, you will need to make sure that your vehicle is ready and you're all set to go!
