Van Driver of the Year

Back for 2022 and in its eighth year, the search is on for the country’s best van drivers with this year’s Van Driver of the Year competition.

Van Driver of the Year 2022 is thrilled to be welcomed by ITT Hub and it takes place on

Day 1 (11 May) in the outdoor area from 0930-1630.

This challenging contest is aimed at recognising and celebrating the very best drivers from the very best van operators. A presentation of the trophy and prizes will be made at the end of the day to the overall Van Driver of the Year, along with second and third place contestants.

The Van Driver of the Year is organised by Logistics UK. Companies nominated their outstanding drivers during March/April. The entrants were then given an online risk assessment, the results of which count towards their final score, determined by practical tests at this live final.
