Drivers NG solves a longstanding problem of finding a trained, reliable, and trusted professional driver in Nigeria. The problem exists for both companies and private individuals. Drivers NG solves this problem by having built the first platform focused on providing real-time mobility solutions to consumers in the Nigerian market. Drivers NG offers its services on a subscription and fee-per-service basis, while managing the management and payment of drivers. Drivers NG handles the training, verification, and management of drivers, providing mobility services as a service. This allows the company to create stable jobs to provide trained and vetted drivers through their platform. Already active in 12 Nigerian metropolitan areas and with more than 9,000 trained and vetted drivers, Drivers NG is well on the way to become Nigeria’s number one platform for mobility solutions in Nigeria.
