If you’re interested in becoming a truck driver, but have no heavy vehicle experience, our Driver Delivery Program could be the right avenue to employment for you.
The Driver Delivery Program (DDPⓇ) provides individuals who are new to the industry with all the skills needed to drive a heavy vehicle at low risk. The best part? Successfully completing the DDPⓇ makes you highly employable by transport companies looking to recruit capable and safe drivers.
No previous heavy vehicle driving experience is required, the DDPⓇ is designed specifically for highly motivated first-time drivers who are keen to grow their skills and have a passion for entering into a transport industry career.

|Assessment Criteria Standards||
The assessment criteria have been designed to measure a person’s capacity to drive a heavy vehicle at low risk. It is vital the assessment criteria are detailed and measurable, for the assessment outcome to be valid and reliable.
To drive a heavy vehicle at low risk, a person must have, and must apply all the skills, knowledge, techniques and thinking frameworks of driving a heavy vehicle at low risk, using the principle of ‘controlled driving’ (low-risk focus) as it is less open to interpretation.
