Practical Driving Courses

Our practical driving courses are tailored to your own specific needs and are aimed solely at getting you to pass your Driving test with the minimum if fuss.

Our practical driving courses are tailored to your own specific needs and are the best in the industry. Little wonder our pass rate is 20% higher than the Sheffield and Watnall test centres!

We start by building your theory knowledge with up to date software with hundreds of theory questions to practice on line. We will back this up with a classroom training day to further your knowledge and understanding ready for your tests.

The practical driving experience: our experienced NVDIR Approved Driving Instructors are highly regarded as some of the very best in the business, and we hope that their knowledge and professionalism will guide you to an early pass. We “cherry pick” our trainers to ensure the highest possible results. We have an internal training programme led by our in house instructor trainer to make sure that all our staff are 100% up to date and using the best methods of instruction.

We purchase all our CAT training vehicles brand new and they are specifically designed for their purpose. We replace them at a maximum of 5 years. (Many trainers buy vehicles at 8+ years when they are worn out. But they are cheap!) September 1st 2017 sees the addition of two Renault training vehicles to complement our Iveco fleet. The average age of the CAT C fleet will then be just over 12 months!

With modern vehicles, purpose built training centre, driving test centre on site, highly experienced trainers and a dedicated Support Team, why would you go any where else?

Welcome to the World of Professional Driver Training.

PCV/PSV Driver Training

PCV PSV Licence

Optare Bus PSV

The PCV licence is the standard licence required of both drivers and operators of Category D vehicles such as buses, coaches, and minibuses.

You will need to complete Initial Driver cpc to drive professionally. Please ask for details.

They may be good; they may not be. But how can you be sure?

It’s well worth noting that LGV instructors are NOT obliged to be qualified, registered or even trained to instruct.

This would be illegal on a Fiesta but is acceptable (apparently) on a 44 tonne artic! As a result, the majority of “trainers” are ex truck drivers who think this will be an easy way to earn a living.

Small truck or ambulance

C1 7.5 TONNE

7.5t iveco

If you passed your test after 1st Jan 1997 you can only drive up to 3.5 tonnes (Transit twin wheeler or similar). It’s now very easy to go up to 7.5 tonnes by taking our short, intensive course on our 5 tonne Iveco Daily van.

Your test will be arranged for the end of the 2 day course.

Car and Trailer

CAT B + E

For our car and trailer training ( B+E) we use a Toyota Hilux with a twin axle trailer for this course of 10 hours duration with test.

You will master the reversing, coupling and uncoupling the trailer plus an improvement in driving style to reach DVSA test standard driving style.

Minibus Driver

CAT D1

minibus d1

Minibus licence covers you to drive vehicles up to 16 seats.
