Scania Australia has announced the appointment of Dave Whyte to its team of expert driver trainers.
David was the inaugural winner of the Scania Young Australian Truck Driver of the Year Competition in 2007, and subsequently joined the PowerTorque Magazine team as a contributing writer while also running his own transport business.
After recent exposure to the New Truck Generation, Dave has joined the Scania Driver Training team and will work with his colleagues to provide customers and drivers with highly-qualified, expert advice regarding the safest and most efficient ways to operate their Scania trucks.
“I am really excited to be joining Scania and the driver training team,” David said.
“I know the brand very well from the competition and also driving a Scania P-series for many years.
“I also know and have a lot of respect for the Scania Driver Trainers, with whom I have spent many hours in the cab over the years as a journalist, and I have always been very impressed by their ability to pass on useful tips to make me an even better and safer driver.
“I look forward to meeting many more drivers and owners of new Scania trucks and helping them to get the best possible efficiency from their vehicles, while also keeping them and their vehicles safe on the road,” David said.
PowerTorque Magazine wishes David every success in his new appointment where he will be a major asset to the Scania driver training team.
