LGV Driver of The Year | Talent in Logistics Awards 2020

Driving Talent Ltd are delighted to share that Training Manager, Nigel Theobold, placed Top 4 in category “LGV Driver of The Year” for the Talent in Logistics Awards 2020

Finishing in the top 4 in this prestigious competition is a huge accomplishment and everybody at Driving Talent is extremely proud to work alongside Nigel.

Since 2017, Talent in Logistics has provided unique ways to support employers and training providers in recruiting, developing, engaging, and retaining the very best people and addressing the sector-wide skills shortage.

Following application back in December 2019, Nigel has undertaken a series of tests:

  • LGV Driving General Knowledge Quiz
  • LGV Theory Test

Succeeding at this stage, Nigel joined the Top 16 and headed to Manchester to take place in the ‘LGV Driver of The Year 2020’ competition, which included tasks such as:

  • Daily walk-round vehicle safety checks
  • Parallel park between two LGV vehicles, whilst driving an Articulated vehicle
  • LGV reverse exercises
  • 1 hour LGV driving test

It was required that Nigel received a 100% pass rate to proceed; moving from the Top 16 contestants to placing Top 4 overall in the competition. You can watch the full Talent in Logistics Awards show for 2020 by clicking here.

Nigel joined Driving Talent as Training Manager in February 2020 and has had a huge impact on the business as a whole. Since Nigel’s arrival, the business has seen an all-time-high in pass success rates, an increasingly busy schedule of training courses, and new members to the training team and acquisition to boot! – We’re excited to share all of this with you in the coming weeks.

We promise to beat any LGV training prices in the Midlands!
