What is Bolt?
Bolt is one of the most popular applications providing courier and transportation services in the country. Due to significant customer interest, the demand for drivers continues to rise. The increase in the number of customers is noticeable not only in large cities but also in smaller towns and even villages. Interestingly, working with Bolt is possible without exclusivity, meaning you can work for multiple companies simultaneously and earn more. Need more information?

How to start working as a Bolt driver?
Starting cooperation is incredibly simple. To apply for a driver position, simply register on our website and fill out the appropriate form. Formalities can be completed online or by visiting our office. The application requires candidates to be at least 18 years old and have a minimum of one year of driving experience. It is also necessary to present a valid B category driver’s license and undergo medical examinations and psychometric tests confirming the ability to work. If you plan to use your own car, it must be in good technical condition and relatively new.
What influences the earnings of a Bolt driver?
The earnings of a Bolt driver depend primarily on the number of hours worked. The advantage of this type of work is the flexibility of the schedule. A driver working full-time (approximately 8 hours a day) can earn between 5000 and 8000 PLN per month. Of course, this is an average, meaning that many people earn lower or higher incomes. If you intend to treat driving as an additional source of income, be prepared for earnings around 2000 PLN.
Other factors also affect earnings. The city of work and the time of day you offer your services play a significant role. The best prospects await drivers in large cities. Driving in Warsaw, Gdańsk, or Krakow, for example, gives you the opportunity to pick up a large number of tourists or students. In smaller towns, the number of customers is correspondingly smaller, but it doesn’t mean you can’t earn there. When planning your schedule, also pay attention to the hours you drive. Most people need rides in the morning, afternoon, and late evening. Also, choose the right parking spot. Waiting near a train station, city center, or office centers increases your chances of transporting more customers.
What else influences a driver’s earnings? Passenger ratings! A person with a low average rating in the app or with negative comments has much lower chances of receiving subsequent orders. Working as a driver often requires patience and understanding. The best in the business know how to encourage passengers to leave positive reviews. Such drivers can earn up to around 12000 PLN per month!
