Got email last night advising I will probably be contacted in 3-4 weeks to arrange interview.

Are you training with another company already mate? Would you be willing to drop that and cross over to MTR given the chance? I remember talking to you a while back and thought we had our DMI same time back in March?

Slightly random questions for current trainees? Had uniform fitting last week. Did people go for the shoes or boots? Not sure if I messed up going for the shoes! And do you have to wear them all the time or are you ok with your own pair for classroom based learning? Cheers

I did the same and have been thinking the same lol the shoes looked a lot better IMO and more comfy why I chose them too!!

Just to ad to the question are we allowed to wear all black trainers?

Neither of them are very comfortable. Once you have passed out, you can buy your own and claim £23 towards the cost of them.

I have finished my training. I wouldn’t leave my current job at least in til the contract ends. I did have a dmi booked in March but withdrew.

A trainee in my group managed to claim and bought their own. Might be worth asking when you guys start? I don't find the boots that bad to be honest.

Hope all are well,

Has anyone heard back since the last set of recruitment, if you passed your DMI around the April time.

I also have chosen the shoes and not the boots. The boots looked so bulky and uncomfortable!

I had my DMI in May and was told that I passed in June.

I haven't heard any update yet, since I was told I got the job. In the email it said that they are still awaiting course dates and it may be that I'll have to wait until November.

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone else still waiting for their results for the first online test?
I submitted mine 20 working days today and have still not heard anything back.
Called MTR Crossrail HR team who advised me to contact The OPC, spoke to them who in return asked me to email my enquiry.
Fingers crossed I get a response quickly.
For anyone else that needs to contact them the email address is [email protected].

Do GA Abellio use VSE? If so, I'm going to give up in my quest to be a train driver.
Nope just a SJT then Stage 1 to Enhanced like most TOCs and national pass for stage 2 including MMI. results valid for 3 years with GA, 5 with others and 2 with others.

Stage 1 is at Stratford academy internal
Stage 2 is at OPC Watford including MMI

I applied for Willesden. Would it affect my application as I failed the MTR Crossrail VSE assessment.
Im not 100% sure but my guess would be Yes mate. As said before, ARL use VSE but they do it as the last test of stage 2.

Hi all,

I have my assessment day on the 30th of this month. In the email there are 4 tests which they recommend practicing for as these will come up on the day (TRP Part 1 & 2, Group Bourdon, DFFT, TEA OCC). However, in the practice pack there are a lot more tests mentioned and also an MMI.

Can anybody clarify which tests exactly we will be required to do and if there will be an MMI? We'll be there from 9-5 so I cant imagine how it can only be 4 tests for the entire day...
