Become a Trainee

We take our trainee drivers very seriously, that's why the recruitment and training process is so in-depth. If you pass the interviews, assessment days, the medical and the DVLA Provisional D application, the process from here looks a little like this:

You'll take a theory test, a CPC case study and 12 days of official driver training with a PCV test at the end. You have to pass each one to move onto the next stage. If you pass all three, we'll give you a garage-based induction that will last two weeks. Succeed there and you will join our service rota. That's National Express language for 'welcome to the team'.
