Logistics (Driver)s are required to drive and operate a wide range of general and specialist vehicles, from Passenger Carrying Vehicles (PCVs, which include cars, minibuses and coaches), to both rigid and articulated Large Goods Vehicles (LGV) and mobile cranes; you will also refuel aircraft using tankers.
It will be your responsibility to make sure that RAF personnel and equipment get to the right place, at the right time and in good condition to meet Defence's operational output. You will be driving or operating on exercises and on operational deployments, on and off airfields and throughout the world, both on paved roads or on rough terrain. You will drive an array of different passengers (including VIPs), LGVs carrying an array of equipment, which will include transporting hazardous materials using the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) qualification you gained during your Initial Trade Training.
Within your first few years, you will probably be detached overseas for anything from a few days, up to several months. As a specialist and professional vocational driver, you will be expected to maintain the highest standards of dress, deportment and driving technique. You must work as part of a team, whilst having the capability and confidence to work and make decisions independently. Full training and support package is available to the Logistics (Driver) throughout their career.
