Susie Andrew came to Belt Up as a recommendation from one of our sister company's customer. Truck School taught Vicky Heal to drive an HGV not so long ago under a sort of government funded scheme, whereby she completed a BTEC level 3 diploma under an advanced learner loan and she was then able to drive the 18 tonne rigid lorry.
A couple of days ago, we had a cancellation test available and we asked all of our recent passes if they knew anyone who would benefit from taking the cancellation slot. Vicky put her friend Susie forwards and so training began.
Carlie completed day one of training with Susie and quietly confident, Susie returned to the yard to finish day one. For day 2, Mike took over as Carlie was booked for annual leave. A few reverses in the yard, the uncouple procedure and then off to Bristol for her test!
No need to worry. Susie literally flew through the test and came back with a new category on her licence. She can no tow her horse trailer behind a car completely legally!
Well done to Susie, Mike and Carlie for this result.
