Need a change of career?

Become a taxi driver and earn around £1000 per week at All The 8's!

Driving a taxi means you are your own boss and can mostly choose when it suits you to work, plus choose how much you want to earn. The more you work, the more you earn! Our best drivers earn between £800 - £1200 every week!

All The 8's are one of Colchester's biggest private hire businesses and we played an important part throughout the Covid-19 pandemic by keeping key workers moving around Colchester. We not only pick people up and take them shopping, but also much more! We take business people and holiday makers to airports, transport patients between hospitals and take / collect children from schools and more. Every day is different and presents different challenges or situations, but they are never boring.

We are inviting NEW drivers to come and work for All the 8's.
You will need to apply to Colchester Borough Council for a 'badge' to be able to drive a private hire vehicle. The process includes local knowledge tests, medical assessment and criminal records checks which can take 6-8 weeks and costs over £400 which are usually paid by the applicant, but for the right applicants we will pay the associated fees and help through every part of the process to ensure it is as easy and streamlined as possible for you.
When your application is completed and you have your badge you can then either buy / use your own car as a private hire vehicle (subject again to council registration, which we may also be able to help with) or we will provide you with a car that is fully insured and ready to use!
Then you will be out on the road with earnings as high as you want them to be. The more you put in, the more you get out.

The right people for this career are calm under pressure, self-motivated, able to work on their own initiative, understand and able to deliver outstanding customer service under any circumstances and willing to work days, nights, weekends and holidays to maximise their earnings. It is a self employed role so you would be responsible for your own tax and national insurance. You would need to register with HMRC for self assessment for tax purposes.

If you are ready to take the plunge into a new, rewarding career please call Alison at our Colchester office or use the 'Contact Us / General Contact Form' above to have an informal chat about what is involved to see if it is right for you. If it is we can help you get the ball rolling right away and get you on the road as soon as possible.
