I would suggest waiting your turn, as all have done before, where they themselves have not had a "heads up". It's the only way to ensure process fairness.

Apologies if I caused offence, but with respect, I’m not sure how any of those three questions are supposed to help to gain an advantage in any way. Does it make a difference if it takes 2, 4 or 6hrs? 5,10 or 20 people?
Fyi, my wife is in hospital and I’m wondering if I might be able to pick my 9 year old up from school at 3.15pm

Are you currently in the mix for the assessments? If so, let the OPC know and ask for a steer. They will probably then courteously put your interview (if you pass the computer tests) first.

I had my part 2 OPC assessment at Watford yesterday. 9am start, finished the CBI prep questions and 3 tests by around 11:15am. We were then given the results, 3 out of 4 made it to the CBI. I was last to be interviewed at 12:30pm and done by 1:45pm. I’ve just had the results and happy days will be progressing to the Driver Manager Interview.

I’ve just had the same happy news. Although still no sign of the questionnaire they said they needed ASAP... have you received it yet?

Congratulations to you too. Even if we don’t get the job, it’s quite an achievement making it this far.

Did anyone have the foresight to take a screenshot of the job description? I can’t find where I saved it and thought it might be worth looking over again before the DMI.

Just got the dreaded "unfortunately" email from OPC. Second one, so that's my lives gone. Beyond heartbroken. Been chasing this for seven years, and it's just gone in a whimper. Good luck to everyone else out there.

Sorry to hear this, I also got that email last week. Do you still have lives for companies that accept the MMI as Avanti use the CBI

So sorry to hear bruebunny, it really is a brutal process. Best of luck in your future endeavours.

I had my interview a few months ago, the result came back about 3 weeks later so if you haven't heard straight away you may be in for a wait until the New Year now.

I was told yesterday that I have been successful and they’ll be in touch in January with course details. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone on the forum. I have benefited hugely from the wisdom, kindness and camaraderie shared here. I hope this is representative of the industry itself.

Tigerkenco, I’m sorry to hear you weren’t successful this time but take solace in the fact you made it to the finish line. A major achievement in itself! You’ll smash it next time!
