Hello, and welcome.

Firstly congratulations on passing your class 2 and actually getting a driving job, many would envy you. Here’s a few of my favourite links:

This one from ROG’s signature, with plenty of tips for the class 1.
The Transport Office’s page of reading material which will keep you amused for months. Speficially, the Drivers’ Hours Guide from that page is worth memorising as far as possible.
Finally, if you can deal with a bit of Spanish, this free digital tacho simulator might come in handy.

And, as bigcheese said, there’s plenty of useful info already here, just have a look around and don’t be afraid to ask questions.


P.S. It’s been a long day, let me know which of those links don’t work!

many would envy you! certainly as a under 25 year old driver.
sounds as if your doing well though, congrats an best of luck in future i say

Hey guys…

So many thanks for you advice and your welcomes…
i have post in a couple of topics etc and just finding my self around the site…

the only reason ive got a job on the class 2 is becuase i was just a normal van driver for the same company and as they put 3/4’s for my class 2 i cudn’t really say no lol… but its for the same company!

i will try and get pics of my truck im currently driving - shes a oldish lady v reg but hey she still going strong :d

i was just wondering is there any way that people get spotted on here out on the road ? i.e stickers or any think like that ?
