HomeDrive - Responsible Driving
HomeDrive has been born from the demand for an affordable alternative to driving under the influence.
It was established in 2010 by David Harwood, founder and managing director of Elite Chauffeur Services, which has a 22 year track record of quality service.
HomeDrive drivers are all given extensive in-house training through the Elite Chauffeur and Driver Training course. A driver team consists of a backup driver and vehicle, and lead driver who will drive the client home in his or her own vehicle. His backup driver will follow and collect him from the clients’ house.
All drivers have valid Professional Driver’s Permits (PDP’s). To obtain a PDP, drivers are given a medical every 2 years and they may not have a criminal record.
HomeDrive offers a range of services. Once-off bookings are welcome as there are no membership fees or registration required. HomeDrive offers user-friendly online bookings, with an automated service which will sms your driver name and mobile number to you on the afternoon of your booking. Should you wish to change a collection detail, you are able to directly contact your driver.
Driver teams can be booked as required for functions – as many teams as required are then booked for the period required at an hourly rate which includes unlimited trips.
Pubs and venues are becoming increasingly aware of their liability in terms of patrons leaving their premises, and HomeDrive teams with branded vehicles can be employed to be permanently based at these venues as required. Teams are based there and on standby to transport patrons home when they are ready.
There is no need to cover the many reasons not to drive drunk – the consequences are well-known. With the HomeDrive service so easily available, there is also no justification for taking a chance.
