The Driver and the Prize
The Young European Truck Driver competition is back again for 2007, which means the search to find Europe's most skilful driver is on once more – and with a top prize of a brand new Scania R-series truck valued at 100,000 Euros at stake, this is one event no young driver should miss!
Test your skills and win
Through a series of written and practical tests, Young European Truck Driver will assess your driving skills. Successful applicants will progress through a qualifying round to participate in the UK National Final. From there, the overall winner will travel to Sweden to represent the UK in the event's European Final, which is where the top prize will be awarded.
To take part you need to be:
Born in 1972 or later
A citizen of the European Union, Norway, Switzerland or Turkey
Working full-time as an LGV driver
How to enter
The competition opens on 12 January after which you will find a dedicated Young European Truck Driver website at www.scania.co.uk/yetd complete with online registration form.
As an added bonus, every registration we receive will be entered into a prize draw where you could win a portable DVD player, SatNav system or Scania jacket or one of the other great prizes we're giving away.
Application forms are also available at any Scania dealer.
Closing date for entries is 11 May 2007 – so make sure you act soon!
