Driver Training

At HOYER our drivers undergo rigorous internal training which consists of a bespoke 3 week training program, followed by competency checks in loading, driving, unloading, roadworthiness checks, and emergency procedures. Drivers then receive a refresher course every year and a defensive driving course every two years.

All of this training is carried out by our own Driver Training Instructors (DTI’s) who themselves undergo a rigorous selection and training process in order to deliver industry leading  training, focussing on our own detailed  Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) Policy, which is the cornerstone of our safety performance and key for the safety and wellbeing of our Driver Technicians and our business as a whole.

Each contract has designated DTI’s as well as a Senior DTI appointed to ensure all training is carried out consistently.

Generally the DTI’s and Senior DTI’s are recruited from within our driver workforce and are considered as being amongst the best of the best. As well as being leaders of Health and Safety they use their class leading skills to develop and motivate our Driver Technicians to work to the highest standards of safety and professionalism.
