Our Chauffeurs undergo specif training here`s some information and history of our profession
In addition to the minimum legal requirements, limousine companies often require their chauffeurs to undergo specific extra training.These courses may involve evasive driving or defensive driving techniques, the proper methods to ensure safety in the most extreme conditions such as inclement weather, a flat tire at high speeds, or other exterior influences for loss of vehicular control, etc. Most companies also have their own courses as to what they expect from their chauffeurs. Chauffeurs may be taught proper etiquette for use when they are in presence of their clientele. They may also be trained for services to the client beyond the car itself, such as for a personal valet or bodyguard. Many companies and local licensing agencies currently require random drug screening – in the United States this was especially the case after professional ice hockey player Vladimir Konstantinov's career-ending injuries when his recently hired chauffeur, Richard Gnida, lost control of their limousine and crashed.
In many places (or at times in the past), proper physical presence is presented by the chauffeur at all times. This usually includes a well-groomed individual, conservatively dressed in a clean and crisply pressed black or dark suit or tuxedo, dress shirt, and appropriately matching tie, with black leather gloves and freshly polished matching footwear. In some areas, such as Japan, white gloves are the norm. Some companies have complete uniforms for their chauffeurs, and some require that hats be worn as part of the uniform.
The term chauffeur comes from the French term for stoker because the earliest automobiles, like their railroad and sea vessel counterparts, were steam-powered and required the driver to stoke the engine. Early petrol/gasoline-powered motor cars, before the advent of electric ignition, were ignited by 'hot tubes' in the cylinder head which had to be pre-heated before the engine would start. Hence the term chauffeur which, in this context, means something like "heater-upper". The chauffeur would prime the hot tubes at the start of a journey, after which the natural compression cycle of the engine would keep them at the correct temperature. The chauffeur also maintained the car, including routine maintenance and cleaning, and had to be a skilled mechanic to deal with breakdowns and tyre punctures en route, which were very common in the earliest years of the automobile.
While the term may refer to anybody who drives for a living, it usually implies a driver of an elegant passenger vehicle such as a horse-drawn carriage, luxury sedan, motor coach, or especially a limousine; those who operate buses or non-passenger vehicles are generally referred to as "drivers". In some countries, particularly developing nations where a ready supply of labor ensures that even the middle classes can afford domestic staff and among the wealthy, the chauffeur may simply be called the "driver".
People currently sometimes employ chauffeurs full-time to drive themselves in their own personal vehicles, yet there are also professional services offering limousines or rental cars driven by chauffeurs. This is very similar to but more luxurious than taking a taxicab. A variety of benefits are cited for using chauffeurs, including convenience, productivity and time savings, and driving safety for businesspeople and seniors. Insurance costs for luxury vehicles are often lower if the designated driver is a chauffeur.
The legal requirements to be a chauffeur vary depending on the local jurisdiction and class of vehicle. In some cases, a simple permit is all that is required, but in others an additional professional license with certain minimum standards in areas such as: age, health, driving experience, criminal record, local geographic knowledge,[
A chauffeur is a person employed to drive a passenger motor vehicle, especially a luxury vehicle such as a large sedan or limousine. A woman employed to drive a passenger motor vehicle is a chauffeuse.
Originally, such drivers were often personal employees of the vehicle owner, but now in many cases specialist chauffeur service companies or individual drivers provide both driver and vehicle for hire, although there are service companies that just provide the driver.

One of Southampton's busiest terminals, Ocean has a host of amenities to make your time there as straightforward and comfortable as possible.
Travelling by car, getting there is easy. Just off the A33, Platform Road head for Dock Gate 4. Make sure to allow plenty of time, as traffic can get heavy during peak time.

Dropping Off Your Luggage:
There's no need to worry if you're unsure; with clear signage and staff on hand, every step of the way has been thoroughly thought out. As you approach the terminal, to your left is the baggage handling area. Drop-off is located adjacent. Porters are quick to help with your luggage. If parking, you will need to bring your luggage over to this area yourself.
Where to Park:
Short stay parking, located just behind the coach bays, is to your right as you face the terminal. Starting at £1 per hour, prices rise to £10 for 24 hours. A lost or damaged ticket will set you back a £100, so make sure to keep it safe.
Long stay parking is situated behind the short stay car park. It's not available on the day, so don't leave booking a space until the last moment. Your travel agent or cruise operator should be able to book this for you.
A Quick Note for Smokers:
The terminal is No Smoking throughout. As you approach the terminal from the car parks, the designated smoking area is just in front of you, to the right hand side. Remember to use the bin provided, as littering in the UK has an £80 on the spot fine.
Heading In To the Terminal:
Things can look a little hectic when you first arrive. Two large doors frame the front of the building. Both sets lead into the same reception area, so there’s no need to worry about entering the wrong end. Seating for 100-150 is located downstairs. If you are waiting for a family member or friend to park, it’s a good idea to take a few minutes to wait and relax down here.
What to do Whilst Waiting:
A large magazine stand can be found in the window. Filled with a wide range of high-quality glossy magazines, these are complimentary, with issues changing throughout the year. A Map & Guide to the city is also available from here. It is located just before you exit through the door on the left.
Travel agents set up information stands downstairs for some cruises. They're not always there, but terminal staff are usually easy to spot and are always helpful.
A bank of three vending machines can be found just past the seating, along with a free water cooler.
