    Hallo all To those that have been successful passing through the DMI, what would you say was the X factor that you displayed that swung things in your favour? And is there any confirmation whether crossrail will be a 24hr service?

As highly sought after as the position is, an approx of 4 months is quite a lot of time to commit without a...

    After 1 and a bit years of applying I'm in!

    Congrats fella, you must feel a sense of relief. Journeys like yours add inspiration for what seems like multitudes of us trying to join the industry. Hard work starts now but at least you are in. Check ml posts for a similar if not longer struggle to join a TOC. Good stuff

    Dilemma Re Trainee Driver Application

    Thanks all for your contributions. Fully appreciated. Summing it all up it did cross my mind that attention to detail is important criteria in doing the job so a mistake like this one is not likely to be taken lightly especially with the volume of applicants they must receive.
