Our line of business is very specialistic. That requires a thorough knowledge of our employees. And De Rooy gladly likes to invest in it. For that reason the Driving Academy was created. Experienced employees see to it that new colleagues are educated and trained in an effective manner.


Training program

After the recruitment – which also contains a psychological test – the training begins, which takes 2 weeks. In the first week the theory will be discussed, about numerous subjects like topography, loading and unloading, the working of the board computer, knowledge about freight documents and other documents. Also a driving test is part of the training. After approval to start the second week begins in which the loading of vehicles is trained, followed by a period of mentor training. Together with an experienced chauffeur you enter the road and learn the tricks of the trade. The mentor reports to the senior planner if the new chauffeur is skilful and ready to enter the organisation. In that way within a very short time – after approximately 6 weeks – you can get started independently and with a safe feeling.
