    You should be a 12th or graduate so that you can apply for the railway jobs. It is consider most important that if you have the ITI then you chances for getting the jobs increases. So with your study if you do this training then you have more chances to select in railway sectors.

    We feature many Railway Train Driver Jobs live online at this site and these posts are updated daily. Please book mark this page and return here on a regular basis or register with our site for Jobs by email so that you don't miss out on the latest work opportunities.
    Working Duties Expected
    Train drivers operate diesel or electric trains. There are strict rules on safety for both passenger and freight trains. The safety of rail passengers is critical and there is a strict policy on drug and alcohol abuse. Random tests may be conducted at any time.

    Extreme weather can make it difficult to negotiate the track, therefore it is important that the driver is familiar with the route and can anticipate the changes required.

    On some trains it is necessary to make announcements to passengers and open and close the doors by remote control.

    Hours and Environment:

    Train drivers normally work a 37-hours. This could involve shiftwork including weekends, evenings and nights. Some long distance crews may stay overnight at the end of a run.

    The driver usually works alone in the cab for the duration of the journey, except when accompanied by a trainee driver or if a driver leader is on board for an inspection ride.

    Uniforms are supplied by the train company.

    Skills and Interests:

    To be a train driver, you should:
    • be able to cope with working alone for long periods
    • have a good memory for details of routes and procedures
    • be able to concentrate and spot changes in the track ahead
    • be able to react quickly, calmly and correctly
    • be able to accept responsibility and work without supervision
    • be physically fit
    • have good eyesight, with or without glasses
    • have normal colour vision.

    Entry:

    Most companies require drivers to be aged over 21. There are no specific entry requirements, although most employers will expect candidates to have a good general standard of education and be literate and numerate.

    You may be required to sit tests which measure levels of aptitude and concentration, attention to detail, and memory. Potential drivers must sit written and practical driver assessment tests, possibly on a computer or simulator.

    New entrants will be required to pass a medical examination to test fitness levels, eyesight, colour vision and hearing. There is a rigid policy on drug and alcohol abuse. Random alcohol and drug tests can be conducted at any time.

    Some companies will not employ individuals who have visible tattoos or body-piercings.

    Most Train Operating Companies (TOCs) look for experienced train drivers or select suitable people from among their existing guards and station staff for training. Some TOCs have an upper age of 45 for drivers. Health checks become more frequent with age. See the Centre for Rail Skills website for TOC contact details.

    Some entrants progress from driving light rail and local routes to long distance trains by changing employers.

    Training:

    Driver training may last up to a year. In a training centre, you will learn safe working practices, rules and regulations, knowledge of train types, ticket prices and routes, and first aid. The next stage involves a train driving instructor tutoring you on how to drive trains, followed by route learning alongside an experienced driver.

    Both during and after training, drivers may work towards the NVQ/SVQ Level 2 in Rail Transport Operations (Driving). There is also an NVQ/SVQ Level 2 in Rail Transport Operations (Shunting).

    Opportunities:

    There are currently 23 passenger Train Operating Companies (TOCs), a number of freight companies, and underground/light rail/metro companies. Leasing companies also employ drivers. Some TOCs operate routes spanning the country - others are regional or local.

    There are now big moves to update the rail service with new faster trains, more freight depots and stations, and other improvements, therefore some companies are actively recruiting drivers.

    Promotion will be to driver leader or manager, and into general management. It may be possible to move up from driving light rail and local routes to long distance trains by changing employers.

    Generally, there are more opportunities in the more complex, busy networks such as London and the south east of England.

    Annual Income:

    Figures are intended as a guideline only.

    New entrant drivers are paid around 13,500 while training.
    On completing training, pay is 24,000 rising to 27,000 after two years.
    Some experienced drivers earn over 30,000.

    Free or reduced price travel is usually offered as an extra benefit.
