Driving work for newly passed car drivers

Post by Dibzy123 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:10 pm

Hi everyone.
Newbie here so sorry if this is in the wrong secion.

I've recently passed my automatic driving test and am looking to do some driving work (courier/escort stuff) for a while (had a bit of a break down so slowly getting back into the swing of life and needing to take day by day).
I'm lucky enough to be getting some help with getting myself a car/van within the next 2-3 weeks. But leading up to this i obviously need to know what im buying in terms of vehicles, insurance, tax etc. Im aware that insurance is going to be high and that i need to weigh up wether its worth it or not but really could do with some ideas!!

Thanks
Dibzy :geek:

sameday is all over the country taking maybe 1 parcel/pallet
Multidrop is like Yodel/DPD/Hermes delivering many parcels a day to peoples houses.
