Silly question but I recently passed my DMI (10/10/19) and was informed by email I was successful four days after my interview however I did not receive a phone call so I’m just wondering did everyone on here receive a phone call and a email? Or is it pot luck with what form of communication you get? Sorry if it sounds silly I want to be sure just in case the number they have on file for me is incorrect :oops:

That’s normal, I had the same email. Currently no vacancy and this position is for a talent pool.

Do you think it will affect recruitment for trainee driver atm or those waiting for interviews

Hi Fractal,
Would you mind sharing how long you had to wait between the MMI and DMI? And which depo did you apply for?

There seems to be a range in waiting times experienced by some of the canindates on this forum. I wonder whether there may be a link between the different waiting times and the depo's candidates have applied for.

I did my MMI on the 4th September and had my DMI on the 8th November.

I applied for Abbeywood however when speaking to the interviewers they said where I’m in the east, I could end up at Ilford or Shenfield. They also stated “If” successful, I could be looking at a march start.

Edit: My mistake, my MMI was on the 16th but originally was meant to be the 4th September.

Have you got starting date?
I haven't even heard back if I have been successful & my interview was a month ago
I have a Jan start date...
I would call them to double check if its been more then a month. They are still interviewing candidates and are very busy. Hopefully you should get a response very soon.

Congratulations!
What depot did you apply for?
And when was your DMI?
I already called them 2 days ago, they said they'll call back but didn't hear from them again...
Thank you for your quick response and good luck with your training!

Nope. Friday will be 2 weeks which they said if I don’t hear back by then, give them a call. But judging by other comments, that’s just a waste of time and might as well wait.
Fingers crossed you hear back soon!
They called me today saying I was unsuccessful at my DMI, gutted
