Drivers’ walk around vehicle checks have been identified as a vital ingredient in the process of keeping both vehicles and drivers legally compliant, increasing efficiency and reducing down-time. At this year’s Truckfest, FTA will be running a walk around check competition, giving drivers the opportunity to win a TomTom Truck Nav by correctly identifying all the defects on an Iveco vehicle, an exercise which will hopefully inform and educate drivers on the importance of checking vehicles before leaving their company premises.
FTA will also be highlighting a variety of products from its renowned Shopfta range at this year’s show, including some special price reductions, plus ‘clearance bins’ full of cut price items. The shop will be able to take cash or credit card payments and customers will be able to take some items away with them, with orders taken for products not stocked at the show.
With an undeniable problem on the horizon regarding the slow take-up of Driver CPC training, FTA will be providing details of the legal requirements plus information on its competitively priced training courses.
