“A group of 60 military drivers among those deploying to five hauliers in the industry have completed company training with HOYER UK driver training instructors in recent days in readiness to begin fuel deliveries.

The training was a refresher course for these drivers who have previously been on deployment training with HOYER UK as part of national contingency planning. The refresher course included classroom-based work covering company safety procedures as well as equipment familiarisation and forecourt driving manoeuvres.

The military personnel will be based at a number of locations mainly around London and the South East and will be driving a mix of HOYER UK tankers and vehicles from the Government’s reserve tanker fleet.”
