Driver Delivery Program – Get behind the wheel – a roadmap to a rewarding career

The Driver Delivery Program is supported by the Victorian Government and is run in conjunction with Armstrong’s Driver Education. The program is fully subsidised and this allows it to be offered at no cost to participants and employers.

This program will help prepare a participant to become a skilled and valued member of a transport team with a complete understanding of industry expectations. The industry needs drivers and the pathway to your rewarding career could be as close as participating in this heavy vehicle driver training program.
