Other tasks performed by the chauffeur include regularly cleaning their vehicle, as well as monitoring the weather and traffic patterns to remain up to date on any issues they may encounter while traveling. As they transport clients, chauffeurs must maintain contact with their dispatcher to give updates on their progress and availability for pickups, as well as reporting any accidents or other developing issues.
Chauffeurs work primarily behind the wheel of their vehicle. Some time is spent in a maintenance garage cleaning the vehicle’s interior and at a car wash cleaning the exterior. Their day is spent driving clients to their desired destination, and they open the door for their client, as needed. Chauffeurs must adapt to developing situations such as traffic or weather patterns, as well as difficult or changing client demands. They must maintain a professional and courteous demeanor at all times.
Chauffeurs must have a valid driver’s license, and, in some cases, certification or specific licensing. They are usually required to have a clean driving record with no prior incidents. Safe driving skills and knowledge of local roads are also necessary for chauffeurs. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
