So here is yet another success story from Truck School.
John Russell initially signed up to our funding stream for gaining his HGV licence. john already drives 7.5 tonne vehicles in his job and this was to be able to upgrade to the larger lorries for work. John decided that the funding stream was not the way forward for him as he needed to do things slightly quicker.
So John stumped up some cash and we were able to book his theory and hazard perception test along with his practical driver training and test really quickly.
With just 3 days in the cab, our trainer, Sean, took John out, putting him to the grueling test of driving our 18 tonne Mercedes Atego around the roads of Bristol.
John had not told his employer of this licence upgrade, so when he passed some of his work colleagues while out on his training, they were surprised to see him.
John pulled up at the test centre today with Sean guiding him and he managed to pass his driving test with only 5 driver faults. Not bad eh?
Now, all John needs to do is tell his boss! Upgrade in the works lorry on it's way?
