FIRST TIME Class 1 test pass

Today saw the end of a week's driver training for Sam Cooper. What a way to finish a course.. Sam managed to pass his class 1 test today with absolutely no faults at all.

Sam completed his class 2 training with another training comapny in Bristol. However, they do not do 0% finance like Truck School and so Sam was able to take advantage of this option and he booked his driver training with us.

Sam only passed his class 2 test a few weeks ago and we were even a little worried that his licence would not be back in time following that test pass. While he was waiting for his licence to be returned to him, Sam undertook the ADR qualification. This is a course based around the carriage of dangerous goods. Quite apt for a firefighter, as Sam is.

Sam arrived on Monday to start his training. He was introduced to our Volvo FH globetrotter and shown how the trailer attaches to the tractor unit. After a very short demonstration drive, Sam took charge of the lorry and completed day 1 with the reversing exercise.

Day 2 and day 3 were full of silly mistakes, as most trainees have and Sam needed to pull it together for his day 4, which was mock test day. Following a good mock test and a little pep talk from his instructor, Mike, he was ready for test day - Day 5.

A 6.15am start at the Truck School yard saw Sam go through the un couple and re couple procedure just to refresh the memory. Then off to test.

The test centre manager took Sam out for test and Sam did so well at impressing the examiner that she passed him with a completely clean sheet. This allowed for lots of bragging by Mike, his instructor, but we know that all the hard work was actually done by Sam, the driver.

Well done Sam. Good luck in the future.
