Not worth the hassle

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working as an owner driver might sound like a dream job, but take my word for it, it is not. Yes, you drive your own car, but you need to spend good money on it and fullfill ever more stupid requirements by the council. You don't waste time and fuel commuting, but pointless waiting or driving between jobs makes up for it. You can work flexible hours (to an extent where you fit in the rota), but rates are low, to make decent money and return on investment you need to work 60+ hrs, including evenings and weekends, so don't even think about working part-time. The job is simple enough for anyone with a license to do it, so expect a lot of competition, the one of the kind which cuts the rates to under living wage.

Pros

flexible hours, no commute

Cons

low rates, preferential treatment
