TRAIN DRIVER APPLICATION FORM TIPS
Although you need no formal qualifications when applying for train driving roles, you will need a unique set of skills and attributes, and here are just a few of these:
• Be safety-conscious and able to operate under safety-critical conditions.
• Be responsible for your actions at all times and act with honesty and integrity.
• Follow and adhere to rules, procedures and operational practices.
• An ability to learn and absorb large amounts of job-specific information.
• Be a great communicator and be able to deliver time-sensitive messages to groups of people.
• Be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds and different departments within the Train Operating Company network.
• Take responsibility for your own personal and professional development.
• Maintain your own suitable levels of physical and mental fitness.
• Be able to react calmly in an emergency situation.
It is vital you can demonstrate these and other qualities at every stage of the process, so make sure you work hard to demonstrate all of them! In our guidebook, we’ve provided you with a detailed breakdown on how to show these qualities to the assessors!
ADVICE FOR PASSING THE TRAIN DRIVER APPLICATION FORM AT THE FIRST ATTEMPT
READ THE JOB DESCRIPTION AND GO ALL OUT TO MATCH IT
The ASSESSING INFORMATION TEST requires the user to read a passage of information and try to memorise as much as possible. You will be then asked a number of question on what you have read. This will test your ability to take in and recall information which you have read, assessing your memory and concentration skills
‘SAFETY’ IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMPETENCY OF THEM ALL
As a fully qualified and operational train driver, you will be responsible for the safety of yourself, your crew, the passengers, and the rolling stock you are operating. On that basis, safety must be at the forefront of everything you do. Driving trains is a safety-critical role. Apart from being assessed against this vital competency during every stage of the selection process, you will need to demonstrate both your awareness of it and your ability to adhere to it during your responses to the application form questions. Safety must always come first, above everything else that you do! Furthermore, those candidates who can provide evidence of where they have worked in a safety-critical role already, and also followed safety rules, procedures, and/or guidelines, will find it easier to pass the application form.

LEARNING THE PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS
In the final section of our book, we will provide you with a list of sample keywords, phrases and sentences that we feel are a close match for the assessable competencies required to become a train driver. You will find these useful in your preparation for completing the train driver application form, as they will give you an idea as to the type of content that is most likely to be appealing to the train operating company assessors.
The critical phrases that you should use in your responses, include:
I will always carry out my duties as a train driver safely and with the highest standards of integrity at all times.
I am customer-focused and understand how important it is to provide exceptional service to your passengers.
I am a strong team worker who will always put the aims and objectives of my employer first.

KNOW WHAT IS ON YOUR APPLICATION FORM
Train driving is a safety-critical role that requires specific skills, qualities and attributes, and you must be honest in your use of these, for obvious reasons. You should remember that, if you say you are good at something on your application form, you will be asked to back those claims up with evidence at the interview. For example, if you write on your application form that you are “totally customer-focused and will always uphold the values and service standards of the company” you will most probably have to provide examples of when you have already demonstrated these claims, during the train driver interview.

Sample Trainee Train Driver Application Form Question
As the role you’ve applied for means that you’ll be dealing with the safety of our customers and the delivery of our operation, we would like to hear examples of how you have developed your abilities to improve yourself.
This question is assessing your ability to develop your own skills in relation to a job-specific competency. The question tells you that you will be dealing with the safety of their customers and the delivery of their operations. In order to achieve these goals, you will need to continually improve and develop. Think about a time when you have personally developed a particular skill, or attended a training course that helped you to perform to a consistently high standard.
Take a look at the sample response below, and use this as inspiration to craft your own answer!
I currently work as a telecommunications engineer, and I have been doing this job for nine years now. I am very well qualified and can carry out the tasks that form part of my job description both professionally and competently. But, with the introduction of wireless telecommunications, I started to feel a little bit out of my depth. I knew very little about this section of the industry, and decided to ask my line manager for an appraisal. During the appraisal I raised my concerns about my lack of knowledge in this area and she agreed to my request for continuing professional training in this important area. As part of my role, I often have to communicate directly with customers, dealing with their issues and queries. Given that I was learning a variety of new things, I felt that it was my responsibility to make sure that I was fully equipped to help all of our customers out to the best of my ability.
Along with the new training that I would be provided with, I also sought out advice from my line manager on the best way to link my new skills with great customer service. Together, we ran through a plan of action that would allow me to do so. I was soon booked on a training course which was modular in nature and took seven weeks to complete. During the training, I personally ensured that I studied hard, followed the curriculum and checked with the course tutor periodically to assess my performance and act on any feedback they offered. At the end of the training, I received a distinction for my efforts. I now felt more comfortable in my role at work and I also started to apply for different positions within the company, that involved wireless technology. For the last six months I have been working in the wireless telecommunications research department for my company, and have excelled in this new area of expertise.
