THE TRAIN DRIVER ASSESSMENT CENTRE

The most challenging phase of the recruitment process to become a trainee train driver.

Private Train Driver Training

The train driver assessment centre is widely acknowledged as the most challenging part of the train driver selection process. It is no secret that this process is designed so that only a very small percentage of candidates actually pass. This is to ensure that only the best candidates progress onto the next stage of the recruitment process.

Here are the three main reasons candidates DON’T become a trainee train driver:

Challenges of becoming a Train Driver

Lack of preparation

Challenges of becoming a Train Driver

The high-standard expected of candidates who apply (particular at the assessment centre)

Challenges of becoming a Train Driver

Candidates can only ever attempt the assessment centre twice in their lifetime…

…Candidates can only take the assessment centre twice in their life-time. No exceptions. If you fail twice you will be unable to apply for another trainee train driver position with any TOC.

THE TRAIN DRIVER ASSESSMENT TESTS

Sit all of the following train driver assessment tests with a certified assessment centre provider.

HOW IT WORKS

Maximise your chances to pass the train driver assessment centre by following this winning guideline.

Stage 1 Private Train Driver Assessment Centre

Stage 1 – Get all the help you need to practice before your assessment

Access EVERY train driver training resource How2Become offers. From downloadable software tools and online train driver tests, to walkthroughs and video guides. You will learn everything you need to know to enter your official assessment full of confidence!

Stage 2 – Personal one-to-one tuition from a leading train recruitment expert

To ensure you are ready, and get the best preparation possible, you will receive a full day’s one-to-one coaching session with our expert train driver assessment trainer, Dave Bebb, via Skype. Following the full training day you also get one further session, up to an hour, to follow up with Dave before your official assessment. Use this to cover any last minute questions or recap what you’ve learnt so you’ll have plenty of confidence entering the assessment.

Stage 2 Private Train Driver Assessment Centre
Police Selection Process Stage 3 Final Interview and Vetting

Stage 3 – Sit the tests only when you feel you are ready to do so

With our programme, there is no rush to take the official tests. This means you can get as much preparation in beforehand as you want!

Then, when you have utilised all of the one-to-one coaching and practice resources, you can sit the official test – our accredited testing partner just needs a minimum of 12 days notice to book your official assessment in.

Stage 4 – Your results go onto the national database for all TOCs/FOCs

If you pass, you don’t have to sit the test again when applying for any trainee train driver role, making you the ideal candidate for any TOC/FOC!

All train operating companies can see your results on the national database. If you were them and you saw an applicant who had passed the assessment centre already, would you go to the top of the application pile?

Stage 4 Private Train Driver Assessment Centre

WHY BOOK YOUR TRAIN DRIVER TEST PRIVATELY?

Did you know that typically less than 10% of all applicants are actually successful?

It is well know within the train driver recruitment industry that any candidate that has already passed the assessment process with an official train driver assessment centre provider, is far more likely to be progressed, as they are considered the “golden standard”. Why? Simply put, the TOC saves time and money as they do not need to pay out for the candidate to go through this stage again.

Therefore, any candidate that has already passed the assessment centre has a MASSIVE advantage over all applicants. So, if you really want to give your application a significant boost and bring it to the top of the pile, you really should consider booking a private train driver assessment centre day.

WHY TAKE THE PSYCHOMETRIC TESTS BEFORE I APPLY TO A TOC/FOC?


Having helped trainee drivers across the UK secure jobs for the last 16 years, we know just how tough it is.

We get contacted regularly by aspiring train drivers who have failed the psychometric tests already – a worrying state for them to be in since all applicants only ever take the psychometric tests twice – seeking our help to give them the best chance of success!

After years of creating content, working with aspiring train drivers, test providers, and recruitment experts we have crafted the ultimate programme that allows you to position yourself above other candidates!

By using our training and taking the official assessment centre now, before you apply for open TOC or FOC positions, you make yourself a much more desirable candidate.

Why?

Simply put, it shows that you have the skills to carry out the role of a train driver and they do not have to pay to put you through the assessment centre themselves. This is a personal investment where you get to take the official train driver psychometric assessments. Your results will go on the national database for all TOCs across the country to access.
