Kevan, pictured, was one of the first drivers and Lesley one of the first operator/administrators in Poole to successfully complete the BTEC "Transporting Passengers by Taxi and Private Hire" Award in 2006/7.

K Watson Cars, a family business run by Kevan Watson and his mother, Lesley.
Kevan got his private hire drivers' licence in 2003 having learnt the basics from his Uncle (a 30+ years veteran of the local taxi trade).
He realised that the long distance runs to the London airports were his forte.
With the support of his parents, Lesley and Andrew, in 2005 he set up Drive4U Business & Airport Travel. Within 10 years the family had built up a successful Private Hire airport transfer and long distance executive taxi business.
The business was built around the mantra of customer service and eye for detail. In the summer of 2016 the family sold the business to a local taxi firm.
Andrew sadly passed away in December 2017 but wishing to build on over 15 years' experience, Kevan and Lesley have returned with
K Watson Cars, an executive car service with the same business philosophy.
