Gareth,

My experience was driving HGV's - they had scoring tables & I never bothered with trying as I always pulled away "promptly" so as not to impede other traffic. My score was always about mid way.

Another thing you were "flagged" for was going over 2,000 rpm so if you kept under that your progress on gradiants was dangerous the way you got in the way of everyone else (including other HGV's). They were autos too and always specced with the lowest power engines. At one time you could over ride the gearbox but when I left they were starting to inhibit that.

No such Censored to contend with now - I drive a 26ton 6 x 6 Mercedes Gritter/snowplough - nice bit of kit !!
