Here at Field Chauffeur Services we have a fleet of five star executive cars, but how do we decide who matches our strict criteria to become a five-star chauffeur?
Our selection process enables us to ensure our high professional standards are consistently met, and you can read more on this below.
Background of our chauffeurs
All of our drivers are either ex-Police Officers or former Forces personnel. Their experience means they have been security trained and understand the importance of safety, especially with regards to discretion and confidentiality.
Their previous experience enables them to use their initiative and adopt a highly disciplined approach to meet the requirements of offering a professional chauffeur service. They are also able to be totally flexible in dealing with any situation that may arise.
Having previously been in careers involving the wearing of a uniform, they understand the requirements of being immaculately presented at all times by following our strict dress code.
British Chauffeurs Guild
All of our drivers undergo rigorous training and are members of the British Chauffeurs Guild, who were the preferred supplier to the International Olympic Committee for the London 2012 Olympics.
It was created in 1983 by Leslie Cabrera, who served for 15 years as a Metropolitan Police Officer, and a number of years as a professional bodyguard. The Guild remains the world’s first authority in Licensing, Training and Employment for its members. It acts as a licensing registration authority and issues its members with a personalised ‘Chauffeur’s Permit’.
It produces a Chauffeur’s Manual containing the Rules of the Guild, Code of Conduct and Guidelines for its members, and issues an exclusive Guild Lapel Badge.
All our chauffeurs are also members of IAM RoadSmart, formerly known as the Institute of Advanced Motorists. This is a registered UK charity formed in 1956, with the aim of making our roads safer by improving driver skills through coaching and education.
To become a member, a driver needs to pass the advanced test, which is significantly more stringent than the standard driving test, and is based on the UK police driving manual.
Research has indicated that drivers that have passed an IAM test have substantially fewer accidents and that IAM training has increased their range of driving skills.
