    Will do, i was on the very first day on testing at watford that's the only reason I'm a little surprised. But I did apply for wembley so hopefully they are doing it by depot.

    Rugby and Sandiacre are probably the closest both Heavy Haul not sure if either require drivers though.

    Then you’ll have Bedford and Peterborough further east and Crewe and Hope to the north

    I’m down for Birmingham as well, they asked me if I would consider/was I close enough for rugby and Leicester at the DMI so they must have depots/opportunity’s there.

    Has anybody of those who had stage 2 in January heard anything regarding the outcome? A few people received their results last week but I'm not sure whether they had sat stage 2 in January or before.

    Best advice is be patient. They will get back to you. Or you could call the OPC office in Watford if you really can’t wait.

    Indeed and I don't like it. I suppose at present they are busy with organising, if not already done, the training in March. I wonder when I would hear from them. I hope they get back to me before next year with a date for the training.

    Patience is the key. I think everyone needs to remember it is a massive recruitment drive and will take time.

    I think it's highly unlikely we will hear anything now until mid to late March once that course is fully underway.

    Hi everyone congratulations on all that passed the tests. I have got a question and I am hoping someone can help me with it. I took the tests for London midland in 2016 I was told I failed on the dff. So only done the written tests that time round.I then applied for Freightliner I was told by the opc that all my marks was a good enough pass to proceed to stage 2 including the dff. Unfortunately I failed on the black square test moment of madness and pressed the button once too often. Does anyone know or can shed any light does this mean I have had my 2 strikes or could I possibly apply for Freightliner in the future as technically I have only failed for Freightliner once.
    Thanks in advance for your help guys.
