I wasn't expecting it to be about ratios and percentages, so basic arithmetic, I must try harder next time, thanks
Train Driver Tests
Train Operating Companies (TOCs) run a rigorous recruitment process for trainee drivers. They’re looking to ensure candidates possess the unique skill set required for the role, and they gauge this through a series of challenging psychometric assessments that make up the train driver test suite.
I learnt exactly where I needed more practice and could focus on improving those areas.Lora used Practice Aptitude Tests to keep track of her practice and progress. Start your success story
How many times can you take the train driver assessment?
As the tests administered are designed to measure your natural capabilities, rather than learned knowledge, applicants are only permitted two attempts to pass the train driver assessment.
What happens if I fail the train driver test?
If you fail your first attempt at the train driver assessment, you’re permitted a second attempt provided it is more than six months after the first. Regardless of which particular sections you failed on initially, you will be required to sit the entire test suite again.
How long are train driver tests?
This varies. Each TOC uses its own combination of assessment types, and the length of each test contained can differ widely. For example, a Group Bourdon test is just 10 minutes long, whereas a situational judgement test will allow for more time.
You’ll be sent a preparation pack before assessment day, which should give you specifics on the exact tests you’ll face and the duration of each.
What skills do train drivers need?
Train drivers require a broad range of skills to fulfil their job role. In addition to those measured through train driver tests – like concentration, motor skills, reactivity, awareness and problem solving – you’ll also need a responsible attitude, understanding of safety and emergency procedures, flexibility and good customer service skills.

Need to do more revision

I didn't expect psychometric tests to be so complex, probably should have stayed in school and done this straight after when my brain was fresh!

I took it after a long night at work, so it might be the reason why concentration was difficult. It will be nice to redo it when I am rested.

All is well from my end, most especially the time frame and solution examples. Many thanks for this unique platform.

Math is a must
I found it difficult to work out everything under the pressure of time. A lot of the information needed a bit of analysis.
