    Group Bourdon Test.

    I really a few posts on here saying that you can't improve this with practice. That was not my experience. Over several weeks, and forests worth of paper I improved a lot with the Group Bourdon. It's a year ago now so dont exactly remember but I averaged probably 10-12 rows on the OPC test...

    Freightliner Various Trainee Drivers

    Would be interested to know which depots those receiving calls for DMIs applied for? As regards preparation all I have read and understand is that these are much more like a normal job interview. So do what you’d do for a normal interview. Research the company really well and feel able to...

    Same here. Even in normal times this process would have been a test of faith and patience, at the moment even more so it seems.

    Thanks - encouraging there is some movement. I passed in January too but applied for Eastleigh which seems to be been a little quieter perhaps than some of the other depots (as regards recruitment I mean).

    Rejection email for me for Cardiff and Chester, had previously passed all my OPC tests with another TOC but don't imagine that counts for much with this volume of applications.

    Trainee Driver - Freightliner

    Well frankly I think there is a bit of a mess up. I applied for Shepton Mallet and I have already passed all the psychometric tests to an enhanced standard and MMI with Freightliner / OPC for previous role at Eastleigh in January and I received an email from OPC yesterday saying 'perhaps the...

    Great news Tommy. I passed all my OPC bits in January like many others (applied for Eastleigh) but have heard nothing since (after COVID I didn't expect to), will sit tight and keep looking elsewhere. Really hope it goes well for you!

    OK thank you that's really useful. I didn't know that about SWR, applied recently for a trainee driver role at Salisbury but didn't hear, I hadn't realised they did their own tests.

    Freightliner Various Trainee Drivers

    Does anyone have any idea how long OPC passes last for? Does it depend on TOC? No DMI news from Freightliner (applied for Eastleigh) and can't see many new trainee vacancies coming up in the medium term. Just wondering how long I get before I need to get the group bourdon practice sheets out again

    Freightliner Various Trainee Drivers

    I hadn't heard anything on a DMI after passing all my OPC tests, applied for Eastleigh. Frankly now I don't expect to hear now. Even those who had heard I am not sure how training courses could be held for the foreseeable future given social restrictions in place at the moment. Given the...

    For those who have previously applied at Freightliner before going on to get work with over TOC/FOC can I ask how this works if you have passed your OPC assessments? I have recently applied for a trainee position with another TOC having passed all the OPC assessment but not heard on a DMI -...

    I applied for Eastleigh and haven't heard anything. Doesn't of course mean it is depot dependant, they might just not want to interview me!

    Frieghtliner MMI ATAVT SJE

    I passed all the tests but certainly found the atavt the hardest, I have no idea why the practice material gives you 2 seconds, it was well under a second on the test. I have read a lot on these forums that you can't practice for this one, I have to say I practice for 2 weeks or so pretty...
