Ashley Hawkins came in today at 6am for a lovely little refresher start before going to test, which was at 8.40 this morning.
Ashley completed a customer service course . This short 12 week course was completed a few months ago and this opened up the opportunity for us to book Ashley's medical, pay for his theory and hazard perception tests and then pay for the HGV driver training.
He came last week on Tuesday and trained on that day, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Ashley was really quite good (Don't tell him we said that). His reverse was really nice and no training was required on this. Some training was required for the show me and tell me questions and after day 1 of hitting lots of kerbs because of the larger vehicle, no more kerbs were hit all of the rest of the week.
Out on test today, Ashley was pulled up for driving too slow in some areas! Nevertheless, he passed his test and this, his FIRST TIME TEST too.
Well done to Ashley and also his driver trainer, Sean.
