How much income can I generate?

The answer to this question is completely in your hands. Naturally, the more journeys you complete, the more income you will generate. We have lots of bookings but to maximise your income you will need to be flexible with the hours that you decide to be available to carry out passenger assignments offered to you.

Will I be paid cash for every journey?

We realise that as a self-employed contractor cash flow is important to you. There are two types of bookings at Emess Car Service. Our priority service is account based bookings. For these journeys you will not receive cash from the client, but will have an account with us and we will make weekly payments directly into your bank account. Secondly, there are cash bookings. For these journeys, the passenger will pay you directly in cash when you have completed the journey.

Will I be self-employed?

Yes. All drivers are self-employed and are responsible for their own tax and national insurance. .
