DAF Driver Challenge 2024


DAF UK & Ireland Driver Challenge

The DAF Trucks Driver Challenge is back, throughout this year we will be hosting a series of events where drivers from across the UK and Ireland will be able to put their driving skills to the test, with a chance to earn one of 20 places at the UK and Ireland National Final 2024.
The winner of the national final will be crowned our UK and Ireland DAF Driver Champion and will go on to compete against drivers from across the globe in the DAF Driver Challenge International Final in 2025.

To ensure we get the best drivers, regional heats will be by invite only. Drivers can register for the chance to be selected with the online registration form. Registrations will be judged and successful candidates will be picked manually and invited to join us at one of 10 regional heats depending on their location.

The online registration is your opportunity to tell us why you think you should be chosen to take part in the DAF Driver Challenge. For the right driver this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, to put your skills to test and see if you can call yourself a DAF Driver Champion.
