A Driver (Japanese: ドライバー Driver) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VI. They are the drivers of the Lumi Cab service in Lumiose City and can only be battled if the player does not have enough money to pay for the ride. Drivers can appear as a male Veteran, a Punk Guy, or a Monsieur.

They use members of the Sandile evolutionary family.
