Train Driver Job Alerts Service Train Driver Job Alerts Service Nation Rail

In the UK the rail industry employs almost 200,000 people across Britain’s 2,500 stations, 20,000 miles of train track and it’s predicted 1.4 Billion passenger journeys. Train companies will normally require you to be at least 21 years of age to work as a train driver but most UK train companies do not require specific qualifications.

Be the FIRST to be notified when Train Driver Jobs are advertised in YOUR area!

There are over 22 different Train Operator Companies (TOC) in the UK, with each one advertising job vacancies separately. Some of the different train companies include:

  • CrossCountry,
  • London Overground,
  • Southeastern,
  • East Midland Trains,
  • National Express Anglia,
  • First ScotRail
  • and Arriva Trains Wales


It is estimated that over 300 people apply per new vacancy and more that 80% of those people never make it past the initial application stage. With statistics like these it is vital that you gain all the help you can get to put yourself above other candidates.

Train driver jobs depend upon the train driver vacancies available in each Train Operating Company (TOC), so it’s worth applying for multiple locations and looking around at each company’s website.


How to Apply

To apply to become a UK train driver you have submit your application to individual train operating companies. One of the most frequent ways to do this is to enter as a trainee train driver. Another option you have to become a UK train driver is to start work in the rail service doing a different job such as part of maintenance crews or station staff. However, applying directly to become a trainee train driver is often the most successful.

On successful initial application the TOC will invite you to their assessment centre for tests and an interview. Some of these tests could include:

  • testing your mechanical knowledge
  • memory tests
  • reaction times
  • concentration tests
  • group tests

Finding out when a trainee train driver position becomes available and a train company is recruiting requires constant monitoring of the individual train companies and with so much competition out there, it is important to apply to a position as soon as it becomes available.
