New Drivers
  • We have an ongoing programme of driver recruitment to increase the number of fully productive drivers and reduce our reliance on rest day and overtime working
  • Since March 2010 we have recruited 72 drivers to enter our training program
  • 6 have passed out on the Thameslink route with a further 33 in training. The trainees will progressively become qualified to drive with the last passing out by May 2011
  • New drivers take around 14 months to qualify so recruitment is an ongoing process

Thank you!
