I've just bought a FAX CF 400 with a mixer body on which is on a mix of motorway and round town work . I worked at a DAF dealership for 14 years so would like to hope I have half a clue how to get the best out of the product but currently I can't get more than 60%
On the driver score

Hi Mandy can you supply videos,materials that could be used for training new drivers in the use of DAF trucks also could be used when inducting drivers when handing over new DAF trucks to current employees

Many Thanks
