All our drivers are vigorously vetted and held to the highest standards required for the transport and care of your children.

Possess at least 3 years of driving experience with a clean driving record
Own a 2008 or newer four door car in very good condition

Screened applicants proceed to our phone and in-person interview process which assesses personality, attitude, reactions to situations and sense of purpose. We conduct multiple verifications to ensure each applicant passes these checks:
Address history and Social Security Number validations
National level FBI and Department of Justice background checks
Sex offender records
DMV and driving record validation
In-person driving test
The last step in our hiring process is ensuring driver vehicles meet our exacting standards. All Zum vehicles:
Must be a 2008 or newer, four door car in very good condition
