Moses Driver is a Fijian police officer, who is the immediate past Deputy Commissioner of Police. In this capacity, he assisted Commissioner of Police Andrew Hughes.

A major part of Driver's work was pursuing investigations into the Fiji coup of 2000.[1]

Driver became Acting Police Commissioner[2] on 29 November 2006, when Andrew Hughes took a leave of absence during the crisis which culminated in a military coup on 5 December. The next day, Radio New Zealand reported that Driver had been arrested by the Republic of Fiji Military Forces for refusing to take instructions from the military government. Earlier, Driver had called the Military Commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama "a liar" for claiming that the Police had agreed to work with the Military. It turned out that he had not been arrested, but had indeed been taken in for questioning, and dismissed from office.
