FIRST TIME class 2 test pass for Paul

Paul Maggs works for Oakus. This is a local company and we have delivered training to their drivers before.

Oakus helped us out when we moved to our new premises in September 2016 by painting our car parking lines for us. As a thank you, we said that we would be happy to train one of their drivers to gain the HGV class 2 licence. So it was decided that PAul Maggs would be the one to do this.

Paul had no real idea of what was involved and we had no idea if he had done anything towards getting his HGV licence. We didn't even know if he had completed the medical yet.

After a little meeting, we found out that he had the medical and the provisional licence but he had not passed his theory tests yet. These were soon booked and passed and so the next job was to find some training time.

We are so busy at the moment in Truck School that we were able to squeeze Paul in, but it was just that, a squeeze. Normally we run our courses Mon-Fri or at least 5 days in a row with test on day 5 but this was just not possible.

So with some disjointed training agreed, Paul came and started his training. This all came to a stop today when we went into test for a first thing 8.40 test.

A 6am start with a reverse and a little re cap over the show me tell me questions and then into Bristol. After arriving at the test centre, it wasn't long befor ethe examiner came out and called Pauls name. Nothing more could be done. It was the moment of truth..

Again, no need to worry. Paul came back to the test centre confident as he went out and why not? ONLY 2 driver faults and a test pass certificate, Paul is now qualified to drive the larger lorries in Oakus.

Well done Paul.
