When it comes to driving around the high-profile clients, your job as the chauffeur can get the lot more complex than simply getting them from A to B in the civilized manner.
For the purpose of learning the ropes himself and also to give us the taste of what it takes to drive around the famous people, Auto Express’ James Batchelor got himself the Maserati Quattroporte and the experienced instructor to go with it.
So then, what is the difference between being the celebrity chauffeur and driving the cab or driving for Uber? Well, it all starts with your demeanor, of course your attention to detail.
Batchelor was instructed to immediately lock the vehicle as soon as his client and himself are both inside the car – it’s meant to be secure and respectful at a same time.
Then, he learned about the tires and the tarmac rule, and which states that whenever you pull up behind another car in traffic, you should leave enough room so that you can see their rear tires and some tarmac.
And if you think this rule is just and you can leave yourself enough room to brake or to inch forward in case of the rear-end collision, it is not. Well, not entirely anyway.
The main reason why you want to leave room is because in case of the emergency, you need to be able to break free of traffic and make the run for it – yes, just like in the movies. Probably.
And another interesting piece of advice is to always pretend like you didn’t quite hear what a client said to you in case it’s something even remotely ambiguous. And the purpose of doing this is actually to appear respectful, reply with something along the lines of “I’m sorry sir/madam?
