The DFDS Logistics company is offering free training and a starter salary to graduates of its heavy goods vehicle driver-training course. The complete course takes trainees with a car license right through to being qualified haulage drivers. The company has had hundreds of application since announcing the new courses. The company is now working through the response, and selecting those eligible to train. Some of the applicants already hold Class two licenses, and are interested in upgrading to Class one. David Foster, driver development manager of the company, said that they are prepared to train people for free, provided that they give a firm undertaking to work for the company for two years. The program has been so successful that the company is now talking to the Staffordshire and the Cannock County Council, and planning the same with the Ipswich and the harwich County Council.
