Meet our Examiner

We have our own DVSA delegated examiner who tests our future drivers in-house without long delays for test dates. Learners will be given a taste of what it’s like to drive for us in our newly branded Scania trucks.

Glen MouleGlen Moule has been in the haulage industry for over 30 years, 20 years of them as a driver trainer and examiner. He was with the Driving Standards Agency for over 10 years performing driving tests on cars, bikes, trucks and buses.

In 2016 Glen qualified as our own in-house DVSA delegated driving examiner. 

Driver and Vehicle Standards AgencyGlen said: “Eddie Stobart has a long legacy of training drivers to a high standard. Our driving school offers extremely competitive rates and after completion of the Cat C+E, you’re guaranteed an interview for a job driving for us."

“Career paths with us are varied – you can develop from a driver to a planner, transport manager, or even a driver trainer like me! Drivers can work a range of flexible working hours, from day-time, term-time, nights or trampers who work all over Europe if they want to."

Location

Our driving school is centrally located near Warrington with excellent transport links and affordable accommodation for the duration of the week-long courses.  

The only pre-requisites are that you must have held a full Category B licence (car) for at least two years and have applied for your provisional LGV licence.  

A Category C licence enables you to drive rigid vehicles and a Category C+E licence to drive an articulated vehicle with trailer.
