Established in 1989 by brother and sister team of Neil and Ruth Wallace, Drivers on Demand is one of the few independent specialist driver recruitment agencies where quality comes first.
A Brief History
Initially run from the offices of Wallace School (Driver on Demand's sister company) in Wembley by Ruth and Neil and a small team which included, Dorothy, their mother, who prepared the weekly payroll.
Drivers on Demand quickly built up a client base and a good name within transport sector recruitment. Within in a few years the business had grown substantially, so we moved to offices in Hounslow and appointed a manager to help run the business and in addition to the Car, Lorry and Bus drivers, it also began to build up a database of HIAB and Moffett drivers.
In 1995 Drivers on Demand secured a government contract to help retrain the long term unemployed and help find jobs for them. This was a hugely successful programme and we were awarded several similar contracts but with changes to governments policy and lack of funding, sadly these programmes are no longer available. Drivers on Demand is proud to have helped thousands of people retrain and secure good long term jobs after years of being unemployed.
In 2008, Wallace School of Transport acquired a property in Park Royal and both companies moved to this new location. At the same time the country was about to enter a deep recession which affected both companies. However by streamlining their operations, the directors were able to ride out this difficult time and with the support of the staff both Drivers on Demand and Wallace School of Transport have surpassed all expectations.
The directors are supported by recruitment consultants and recruitment assistments who collectly have over 50 years recruitment experience, have a wealth of knowledge about licence categories to recruit and placing drivers to suit your company requirements.
With a calm and friendly manner, we receive great feedback from both our clients and drivers, our team takes care of payroll and invoicing, keeping up to date with all employment law legislation. Rest assured all aspects of our driver recruitment is fully compliant.
The flexibility and dedication of our staff means our office is open 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and can help with all your driver needs, even at short notice, as well as providing drivers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Hi, Drivers on Demand, you have managed to cover almost all of our requirements, which is super, I am so relieved. I would like to say a big thank you to you and the team for trying so very hard to find us cover. It would have been easy enough for you to turn around and say sorry we just don’t have anyone else available, but you didn’t, instead you really bent over backwards to help us – Thank you once again.
Pamela Slater, NSL Ltd, Kentish Town , London
I just wanted to send my thanks for providing us with Gabriel as our cover driver. He was extremely helpful to us over the last two months and always arrived to work on time and was very hard working. Customer service is very important to us so the way our customers see our delivery drivers is a key part of that service. We have a regional manager that goes round to visit our customers and he reported back to me that he had a number of people tell him how friendly and polite Gabriel was when delivering.
Thank you again and if we need any cover in the future I’ll be in contact.
Michael Marsh, LION South, Hayes, Middlesex

Thanks very much for delivering the vehicle to our customer, who was very complimentary and said that the driver was exactly on time. We would like the same driver to return the vehicle back to us.
