Here are a few tips to help you book the right driver and save money & time.

Drivers for hire in Uganda
  1.  Nationality – If you plan to hire a driver in Uganda, then you get a Ugandan citizen with the reason being that local drivers have been around for a long time and guarantee to give you accurate information about the destinations you will be visiting plus a chance of getting lost a very low.
  • Company Profile– Read through the driver’s profile taking note of past reviews from customers as well as his personal background including driving license, level of experience, literacy level, traffic records among other useful information that highlights the person as a qualified driver. A social page is also a big part of the profile;  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram show some of the places he or she has been to, clients they have been with plus customer reviews as well- so don’t forget to look into that as well when on the profile page.
  • Experience Level – This is a very important factor if you plan on hiring a driver anywhere in the world; you need someone who has been driving for a long time because you can be sure you won’t have any problems like getting lost, arriving late or getting at the wrong side of the traffic police among other problems that may arise when in the hands of an amateur.  A valid driver’s permit of over 6 years symbolizes experience and the higher the number of years, the better equipped.
  • Mechanical Knowledge– Always book a driver who can fix a minor car mechanical problem in case one arises;  it will be an inconvenience if you have to wait along the road for a professional mechanic yet your personal driver can get the job done.
  • Driving abilities – Not all drivers in Uganda can handle manual cars, go with someone with knowledge about both auto and manual car transmissions as this is very vital in-case you have to replace a car and continue a road trip. Plus you need to get a driver with a good traffic record; one who obeys the traffic rules diligently.  
  • Customer Reviews – A good review about a driver puts any client’s mind at ease since you can be sure you won’t have any problems along the road trip. Read through the reviews and analyze what traits make him/ her adored by past clients; it could the smartness, attention to detail, handiness, friendliness, and adequate knowledge about places and routes among others.
