Top Driver Interview Questions & How to Answer

Here are three top driver interview questions and how to answer them:

Question #1: What types of vehicles are you licensed to drive?

How to answer: This question, though very simple, is extremely important and used to gauge an applicant's versatility and skill. List all types of vehicles you're licensed to drive and how much experience you have with each. It's important to answer honestly here; most companies don't conduct driving tests. Although they're typically asked for later, it wouldn't hurt to have licenses or documents on hand.

Question #2: What, if any, vehicle maintenance work are you able to perform?

How to answer: Even if you aren't a trained mechanic, any automotive knowledge you may have will set you higher in the ranks among applicants. Changing tires, oil, and other fluids, and any other general motor maintenance skills are all worth mentioning. Make sure to include less mechanical, daily tasks like filling gas tanks, car washes, and detail work. Anything outside of the realm of basic responsibilities speaks highly of an applicant's work ethic.

Question #3: How do you stay focused while driving for prolonged periods?

How to answer: This question is meant to determine how many hours per day an applicant is able to work safely. There are many ways to stay awake and alert while on the road like drinking coffee, tea, or energy drinks. Rolling windows down for fresh air or listening to upbeat music can focus you while you drive. Whatever your trick is, sharing it will show your love of being on the road.
