Driver Training Academy Success Story

Simply Waste Solutions trucks

Another Simply Waste Solutions employee that’s been undergoing our new Driver Training Academy has passed their Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) license, including Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) module 4.

Lewis has been employed by Simply as a van driver for several years and has proved himself to be a reliable and valued member of the Simply team. The Driver Training Academy was designed earlier in the year to invest in our employees and the future of Simply Waste. The 12-month trainee driver scheme is a mixture of driver training and mentored assessment, stretching across the full spectrum of a professional driver’s duties and responsibilities.

Although Lewis has passed his category C (LGV) licence in full through JLD Driver Training, he will still undergo company post-test assessments and a tailored mentoring programme before being allowed on his own in one of our trucks.

We are very stringent with our checks and assessments to ensure that they meet our high standards and protocol, something we are very proud of.
