Installing your drive without the correct planning is not advisable for more help and ideas go to https://www.bradstone.com/garden-guides-advice/laying-guides/how-to-lay-block-paving/ or http://www.marshalls.co.uk/homeowners/inspire-me/articles/how-to-lay-block-paving-driveway-4695
you should also talk lots to your experts.
before excavating be sure you identify where all your underground services are and make sure you are careful around these areas I personally would assess the proximity of my services before deciding whether to excavate by hand or machine.
Good luck with your drive.

Before undertaking this project
Make sure in your dig there are no existing services.
If so hand dig around these

Hardcore I generally use 150mm then depending on the load going on the drive between 6/8 inches

Best of luck
