DAF Trucks has started training its network-based dealer technicians on electric vehicles, in advance of the first deliveries of its zero tailpipe emissions LF Electric and CF Electric to customers in the coming weeks.

The training, which is taking place at the DAF Academy based at DAF Trucks’ UK head office in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire, includes in-depth EV maintenance and diagnosis procedures. Training content comes in addition to IMI Level-3 Electric/Hybrid Vehicle System Repair & Replacement training, which all delegates on the DAF EV product training have already successfully completed.

Suzanne Moore, DAF training manager, said: “We’re making sure we’re fully-prepared to support customers as they adopt DAF electric vehicles into their UK operations. Just like any DAF truck, customers operating DAF electric vehicles can rely on legendary DAF customer support. We have electric vehicles entering regular operation, we offer a range of mobile and static charging options and we now have fully-trained technicians in place in the network.
