Our Drivers

Our reputation for knowledgeable, friendly, highly skilled drivers is something we are very proud of at Johnsons. Our uniformed drivers are the people our customers meet face to face, whether on our buses or coaches and are therefore the 'face' of our business.

Driver Selection

We select staff on the basis of their performance within a standardised interview and skill-based assessment programme, ensuring fair selection for every applicant.

Furthermore, applicants are only selected upon the completion of health and CRB checks, and having engaged in an assessment day whether they complete aptitude tests in the following areas: geography and map reading test, a Highway Code test and a practical PCV driving assessment.
