PCO cars have become very popular over the past few years, which prompted drivers to get a PCO license and start working as PCO drivers for car rental companies. This can be a full or a part-time job that suits your plans.
G&M Direct Hire Company is located in London and was founded in 2008. This company helps drivers rent a car that meets the standards at a very low price and start earning money without any trouble.
Are you ready to join the G&M Direct family? Please read the following article to see how to get a PCO license and join us.
PCO car rentals in London
PCO stands for Public Carriage Office, which is the office that issues PCO licenses to driver applicants who meet their requirements.
Drivers can get their licenses and start earning money in many countries. However, the rules are a bit more strict in London. You must have a car that is not that old (less than ten years), and the vehicle has to comply with the Euro 6 standards. But what if you do not even own a car?
PCO rental cars are the solution. G&M Direct Ltd is a reliable company located in London that helps drivers get a suitable car complying with the standards to earn money.
Benefits of hiring PCO cars
There are a few upsides to hiring a car rather than driving your own vehicle. You can see the benefits below:
1. You can get a new, better car. Sometimes your dream car is too expensive, but you can choose the car you want by renting.
2. You can also get rid of the extra expenses such as MOT or licensing costs and servicing fees.
3. PCO providers usually offer newer vehicles to drivers. Therefore they release less harmful gases. Some also offer electric cars, which do not add to the air pollution.
