There are a number of layers involved in laying out tarmac for your driveway.
Much like your house, your driveway will also need a foundation. The contractor will need to excavate the area where you want your driveway to be, which will be between 16 to 18 centimetres. A crushed hardcore sub-base will then be laid and pressed down by a road roller. Concrete blocks, decorative stone or Edging kerbstones are placed on the side edges of the driveway, to keep the tarmac from sprawling out on its own.
The tarmac will be laid down in two layers. The first layer is the base, while the second one is the "wearing" course. The base layer uses a larger aggregate grade and will need to be delivered in a heated truck. As the base layer is laid out, large and sturdy rakes will be used to spread the material out throughout the driveway. The roller is then used again to press the tarmac down.
