Scania invests as its nationwide driver training and development service continues to expand and grow

Fuelled by high levels of business development and sustained growth, Scania Driver Training has invested in eight new trucks for its UK driver-development fleet. Comprising four rigids and four articulated units, the new vehicles will provide pupils with state-of-the-art equipment in which to learn to drive a truck.

"Driver Training is a key element within Scania's product portfolio today, and as such we constantly strive to improve and develop our service by investing in vehicles, instructors and the infrastructure which supports them,"  says Mark Agnew, Driver Development Manager for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.  "This latest investment follows our securing of on-going training agreements with a number of high profile national operators.  In addition to fulfilling their needs, our enlarged fleet has been created to also assure existing and new customers of the best possible training experience."

Scania provides a UK-wide driver training service spanning licence acquisition, Driver CPC and a host of related ready-made and bespoke courses, including a number of Train the Trainer options for larger fleet operators.  Available nationwide, training can be provided either on operator's premises or at one of Scania Driver Training's own UK training centres.
