What is a shortfall?

When you rent a car through DriverSelect you sign a rental agreement with the owner of that car. The rental agreement states that you will pay:

  • a weekly rental amount to the car owner
  • a weekly admin fee to DriverSelect (R100)

As a driver-partner you need to ensure that you earn enough to cover this amount and any other expenses. You also need to make sure that you make enough to cover your living costs. If you do not make enough money to pay the weekly rental amount and the DriverSelect admin fee then you will have a shortfall. The amount of this shortfall will be taken from your following week’s earnings, or will be recovered over a period of time.
