So how do I qualify?

You’ll have held a full UK driving licence for at least two years, have less than six penalty points and no criminal convictions that prevent you from driving. Plus, you’ll want to be the helpful face of our organisation and give great customer service every time you deliver.

So, what’s the training like?

The programme is led by our highly skilled Trainer Drivers and consists of coursebook teaching and on-the-job learning. Working 45-48 hours a week, 5 out of 7 days, you’ll buddy up with our HGV Drivers and spend time out on their delivery runs so you can get a feel for what your day-to-day will actually be like. The training doesn’t stop once you’ve qualified either - we will support with ongoing costs, Medical, Tachograph card, Driver CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence).
