A graph is one-regular if its automorphism group acts regularly on the set of its arcs. In this paper we show that there exists a one-regular cubic graph of order $2p$ or $2p^2$ where $p$ is a prime if and only if 3 is a divisor of $p-1$ and the graph has order greater than 25. All of those one-regular cubic graphs are Cayley graphs on dihedral groups and there is only one such graph for each fixed order. Surprisingly, it can be shown that there is no one-regular cubic graph of order $4p$ or $4p^2$.
