TopGear DriveForce Ltd is owned and operated by Rachel Middleton MD.  Rachel has been successfully involved in driver recruitment for over 17 years before deciding to take the giant step of setting up her own recruitment agency.  Established in 2008 Topgear has gone from strength to strength consistently meeting the demands of its ever growing client and driver base. We pride ourselves on a quality, honest and reliable service.

TopGear DriveForce Ltd operate by selecting the best drivers to begin with who are fully screened over the phone before offering a face to face registration to ensure they meet the relevant criteria for each individual client (We do not believe in a bums on seats approach) and communication skills are key.

All drivers have to provide work history for a minimum of 2 years and 2 solid references. In addition to the extensive registration pack all drivers must complete a written compliance test and this is followed up with our training and compliance manager Mr Chris Staples MILT who also runs the licence checks before the drivers are put out on the road and quarterly thereafter to ensure we continue deliver the best possible service to our valued clients.

TopGear provides a wide variety of skilled drivers from LGV1 to specialist drivers covering ADR/ HIAB/ Tankers/Plant and have built our reputation of providing good quality and reliable skilled drivers across the West Midlands/Northampton/Maidenhead


Why stop at drivers?

TopGear Workforce have a growing number of highly skilled people that we are able to connect with the right employers .  Once we are able to fully understand the client’s needs we ensure we only put the right person into the role. An example of  some of the Roles we have placed recently
