HOYER UK – Driver of the Year

In its 4th consecutive year, the internal driving competition hit its peak this year with the quality of drivers who entered. A fierce competition was had, which involved in the first stages;

  • To drive a minimum of 20,000 km’s for HOYER
  • Achieve the highest On Board Truck computer efficiency score
  • Zero blameworthy MVA’s
  • Zero customer or public complaints against your driving, your customer interaction or general attitude
  • Zero speeding fines or traffic violations

Following these results, the top 14 driver technicians representing all contracts from across the UK were called to a final at Bruntingthorpe Airfield to compete in skill tests, which included;

  • Skid control
  • Rollover prevention
  • Defect spotting
  • Steering wheel control
  • Slow Speed manoeuvres
  • 4x4 Vehicle control
  • Workplace Scenario

A dry sunny (but cold) day greeted the drivers, who took to the tasks and had a fantastic day which was finished off with a meal and presentations evening at Brownsover Hall Hotel. The outstanding winner of the Driver of the Year 2018 is Steve Roofe driver technician from Killingholme on the Shell contract.

We would like to thank all the drivers who took part and for keeping the standards as always high.
