When it comes to the differences between Uber and Lyft drivers and licensed professional chauffeurs, there is a stark contrast between how the two handle themselves professionally — and only chauffeurs project a true image of luxury service to passengers.
The rise of TNCs has without question made a big impact on how people travel and get from point A to point B. But when it comes to true Luxury transportation, only chauffeurs fully adhere to all local and federal regulations, only chauffeurs have full commercial licensing and insurance, and only chauffeurs follow strict “Duty of Care” policies. There is a big difference in not only liability and accountability between chauffeurs and TNC drivers, but in quality of service as well.
To put it simply, with a professional chauffeur company, you’re getting the best drivers the industry has to offer. Each chauffeur has been fully vetted and background screened, drug-tested (which is required for commercial transportation companies but not for TNC drivers), and you’re also getting professionals that have received extra training to bring them to an elite level of chauffeuring.
Let’s start with the background screening phase. For TNC drivers, anyone can apply to become a driver, and they only need their personal insurance and personal vehicle to qualify for the job. Professional chauffeurs, on the other hand, are hand-selected from a wide selection of applicants, with most having formal chauffeuring experience and CDL-licenses for driving large buses and minicoaches. They also go through a criminal fingerprint background check before hiring.
