Dear Mr Richards

Job Ref. 5445

Please accept my application for the MC Truck Driver role advertised in Truckers' Weekly.

I have over six years experience as an MC truck driver, having worked as a local driver and on long-haul, intrastate projects. I always ensure that all my licences are kept up to date so that I am familiar with current requirements, and I currently hold a clean MC licence and a Blue Card. I also believe it is important to keep adding to my skills and have continued with professional development throughout my career. Most recently I successfully completed the Transitional Fatigue Management Scheme Course, which has made me a much more productive driver.

In all the roles I have held, I have kept a detailed log book and pride myself on my punctuality. I enjoy developing and maintaining good relationships with customers, which makes collecting payments and issuing receipts a more streamlined process. I have successfully completed many deliveries of a range of loads, including dangerous goods, machinery, timber and metal fabrications. I also hold forklift and crane licences and have extensive experience of using this machinery to load and unload goods.

My referees will be happy to discuss my positive attitude and strong work ethic.

I look forward to discussing my application further at interview.

Yours sincerely
