richard_mcmunn_entrepreneurTrain Driver tests form an integral part of the selection process and are normally split over four different areas. The majority of Train Operating Companies will employ a specialist independent company to conduct the assessments on their behalf.

  • There are currently only a few Assessment Centres that have the capability of carrying out such assessments and these are based at Doncaster, Crewe and London.
  • Before you commence each of the tests you will have the opportunity to carry out a number of practice sample questions.
  • Obviously the best way to prepare is to carry out lots of practice tests well in advance of your assessment day.
  • You should start the practice questions at least two weeks before your assessment date so that your mind gets used to working under pressurised conditions.

Mechanical Comprehension Test – not used by all TOC’s

Mechanical pulley systems

  • Mechanical Comprehension Tests are designed to assess a candidate’s ability to interpret basic mechanical principles
  • Trainee Train Drivers receive a level of traction training during their initial training programme and the Mechanical Comprehension Test is designed to assess your ability in this area.
  • Research has shown that candidates who perform well during Mechanical Comprehension Tests are more likely to perform better in the role of a Train Driver.

Trainability for Rules and Procedures Test (TRP)

  • The Trainability for Rules & Procedures (TRP) Test is a paper and pencil based test and is conducted over two parts.
  • The first part of the test requires you to listen to an audio tape or CD about a piece of information that relates to the rail industry.
  • The piece of information that will be played to you could relate to any rail industry subject.

Group Bourdon Concentration test Trainability for Rules and Procedures test

  • Whilst the tape or CD is being played you will also have a printed copy of the information in front of you to study.
  • You are permitted to take notes on a scrap piece of paper.
  • Once the tape or CD is complete and you have read the information provided, your notes and the printed information will be taken off you.
  • You will then have seven minutes to answer 18 multiple choice questions that relate to the information you have just read and listened to.

The Group Bourdon Test

  • This test is quite difficult and requires a high level of concentration.
  • This is the area that the majority of candidates fail on.
  • The reason why the TOC assess you in this particular area is due to the fact that you need a high degree of vigilance and concentration whilst carrying out the role of a Train Driver.

The basic requirement of the test is to assess your ability to maintain high levels of concentration whilst performing a repetitive task. The test is normally carried out on a computer screen. However, some assessment centres still use a pen and paper version of the test.

  • Basically, you will be presented with five screens/sheets of paper that have rows of dots grouped together in boxes.
  • The dots will be in clusters of 3, 4, 5 and 6, and it is your task to work through each page and cross out each group of 4 dots.
  • You only have two minutes in which to complete each page.
  • The adjudicator will tell you to ‘change’ pages or screens every two minutes, so you have to work fast in order to score well.
  • The problem with this test is you will lose marks for incorrect answers.
