Startup Profile: FindADriver247 — hire a driver for trips within and outside Lagos

by | Jul 19, 2017

FindADriver247  is an online platform where clients can hire competent drivers for interstate and nightlife trips on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Olukayode Johnson and Micah Michael launched the platform on November 16, 2016.

The startup renders services to both corporate organisations and individuals. Clients can hire drivers based on monthly subscription or opt for the Pay As You Go model.


These drivers are full-time employees (on salary) of FindADriver247  and are deployed to clients who live closest to them. There are a number of packages prospective clients can choose from. Hence there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. However, you must own a vehicle or have access to one before you can use our service. Please note that we’re not a driver recruitment agency.

In the bid to deliver on their value proposition, the startup takes responsibility for major damages caused by drivers to customers’ vehicles — either by fixing the damages or paying for the repairs.

In addition, their replacement policy allows customers to request a change if the services of a deployed driver proves unsatisfactory. With a competitor like DriversNG, the founders are quite certain that their approach will gain them an upper hand in the field of play.

If you are a corporate organisation or private individual, you may hire your next driver via the website.
