DAF Driver Challenge 2018

The contestants

The Winner is Scott Lewis

Scott Lewis of the Best Connection driving agency has won the 2018 DAF Transport Efficiency Driver Challenge – a UK-wide search to find Britain’s best commercial vehicle driver.

In an exciting climax to the event, Scott edged clear of runners-up, Chris Ray from Waitrose, and Colin Court from construction materials supplier, Hanson UK. Following a robust selection process – including an invitation to non-DAF drivers – 20 of the country’s best truck drivers were set a series of rigorous challenges at a two-day finale at the Millbrook proving ground on 19th and 20th May.

Below you can find news, images and videos from the challenge as well as updates from 2018 finalists.
