Job Description for Van Driver
A van driver operates a larger-sized vehicle that is normally not quite large enough to be considered a truck. Companies hire van drivers to execute deliveries and pickups; transportation companies hire van drivers to shuttle passengers, such as at airports or for hotels.Read More...
The van driver is normally required to have a high school diploma or equivalent. They also need a valid driver’s license, and - in situations where they drive passengers - may be required to carry a chauffeur’s license as well. Companies typically perform a background check on the prospective driver to ensure that the applicant’s driving and criminal records are clean.
For van drivers who perform deliveries and pick-ups, there may be some heavy lifting and carrying. Drivers for deliveries and pick-ups must be organized and able to get their cargo from destination to destination without damage or unnecessary wear and tear; they also may find it helpful to have an excellent working knowledge of the maps and streets in their normal driving radius.
Van drivers who work for transportation companies that ferry passengers around normally do less lifting. Instead, they deliver passengers from one destination to another in the most efficient and pleasant manner possible. This particular aspect of the driver’s job can be as routine as shuttling passengers from a car rental area to a parking lot at an airport, or it can be as varied as those drivers who work for hotels and carry passengers to area restaurants, malls, and public transportation facilities.
The hours for a van driver vary greatly and depend on the job and location. Van drivers are expected to be efficient and courteous and act as an extension of the business for which they work and represent. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
