ALL Kid Car drivers are fully trained and vetted. If a family really likes a particular driver, they can make the driver a Preferred Driver, meaning that the driver will receive that family’s ride requests before any other driver (provided the driver is in the neighborhood). Preferred Drivers receive an automatic 20% gratuity.
