Dainfern College outsources its transportation service to a company called Kid Vantage Express (KVE), which has operated since 2006. It currently transports in excess of 600 students daily, with the majority of these from Dainfern College.
KVE drivers collect each child from home, school or aftercare. Children are strapped into seats and are driven to school or home, where they are delivered safely into the hands of a nanny, parent or teacher.
KVE only employs drivers who meet their strict standards and requirements. All drivers must have a valid driver’s licence, a Public Driver’s Permit and a minimum of five years’ driving experience. KVE does additional reference checks and background screening, to ensure the drivers do not have criminal records.
Each driver is required to take a professional driving test; if they pass this test, they are enrolled for a specialised two-week training course with one of KVE’s senior drivers.
In April each year, every driver in the KVE fleet repeats a driving test and also the learner licence test. What’s more, each driver must complete a compulsory CPR and Basic First Aid course (which is refreshed every two years).
All the vehicles are monitored by Tracker, 24 hours a day. KVE management is notified if a vehicle is travelling over the speed limit, or if a driver has had to brake harshly, for example.
KVE has an outstanding reputation. Some of the children they transport have been with them for more than 10 years. Here’s what some happy customers say:
“I am thoroughly pleased with your service and the promptness with which you acceded to my last minute request to transport my son. He so looked forward to his second morning pick up which pleasantly surprised me as he is typically attached to me. This is indicative of how warmly he was received and a reflection of an exceptional service… Daniel the regular driver that picks up my son is extremely warm, professional and quite a blessing. This what I call going beyond service excellence, any working mother and father can trust you to reliably offer an efficient, professional and exceptional service”.
“Dealing with Kid Vantage Express has given me complete peace of mind. My son is safe and happy. Excellent service and communication around the clock! Thank you so much Kid Vantage Express…..you have made my life so much easier”.
“We have been using KVE's services for the past six months and have been very happy with their service. The drivers are professional, punctual and reliable. They transport our two boys to different schools, which has been a great help for us. KVE is very responsive to any queries or changes to the schedules. Keep up the great work KVE!”
