    Sorry, I've held a full licence for 41 years. needs must at the moment. So I'm looking for anything so thought a delivery job is better than nothing.
    And part of the process in the interview is this phone test.

    I guess they will ask things like what speed can a van do on a dual carriageways. Cars are 70 vans 60. All you can do is revise the Highway Code I guess

    Just look up the law in relation to using a mobile phone while driving.
    Look into how hands free gear is used.

    Know the dimensions of the van if you can.

    Stopping distances, thinking distances etc. what about rain and snow
    give me examples of when you can overtake on solid white lines
    speed limit where there are street lights and no speed limit signs.
    mimim tread depths for tyres
    parking at night rules
    what do zig zags mean
    what would a sign giving an order look like
    what would a sign prohibiting something look like
     
  12. Thought you could drive them on a car licence?

    Depends on whether it is the higher capacity version and when you first gained your licence.

    Do you have to do this theory test hands-free?

    More like Parcel Farce.

    Driver's probably just arrived in the country and the ink isn't dry on his licence. He'll get the hang of it. Explains a lot about the state of some of the parcels I've received over the years.

    Good luck to the OP.
