Dear Sir/Madam,

Application for the role of Train Driver

I would like to apply for the role of Train Driver which I have seen advertised in (which publication, when and any job reference).

I have always wanted to be a Train Driver and was very pleased when I saw this role advertised. I finished school with good grades and a good standard of education and since then I have been working with people in a customer service role.

I enjoy working with others and providing help and a service and I feel that these skills will come in handy in the role of a Train Driver.

I have a very calm manner and feel that I am a patient person. I remain calm under pressure and work well in stressful situations. I have researched the role and understand that I will need to be responsible for checking the train before a journey, liaising with the control panel for routes and any problems on route, making passenger announcements, operating the doors at the stops on the journey. I also understand that it is my responsibility to ensure the safety of all my passengers.

I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. If you have any questions related to my skills and experience, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.

Yours sincerely


Good luck.
