Apprenticeships and Driver Training
Unique bespoke scheme
Gardner have developed a unique bespoke scheme to assist drivers develop their driving careers. If you are already driving vans this could provide a gateway to a more rewarding driving career.
Initially you will work on our fleet of vans and receive a very competitive rate of pay whilst you study for your CPC, commercial vehicle, qualification. CPC involves a combination of classroom and practical learning.
Once achieved we will ask you to accompany an existing Class 2 driver for more training and, once you are ready, will arrange for you to have more lessons leading up to you gaining your own Class 2 licence which will entitle you to drive rigid commercial vehicles up to 26 ton or an articulated cab without a trailer.
Achieve your Class 1 Licence
Then, if you wish, you can follow a similar programme to achieve your Class 1 licence meaning that you can drive any of the vehicles in our fleet including articulated vehicles.
Initial results from this scheme have proved very encouraging for both the people taking part and the Company.
