From humble beginnings in 1993 in a converted craft centre of just over 350 square feet Essential Driver Training now boasts its own 5,000 square feet purpose built centre housing training rooms, offices and a storage facility for some of our vehicles, trailers and motorcycles, the latter from our subsidiary motorcycle training division, Fast Trak. BUT, and it's a big BUT, we are moving again. We have outgrown our current site, not least because our bike division is opening sites in Northern France from where they will soon be conducting motor bike tours. If you dont mind the cold - or the heat - or the rain - or the snow, you might well be looking at our sister site www.livingyourdreams.co.uk
This website - Stayinglegal.com, concentrates on our core subjects relating to goods vehicles and road transport. Everything motorcyling can be found on www.livingyourdreams.co.uk.
Our staff, many of whom you can see and read about in our photo gallery, have a wealth of knowledge gained from their respective careers as traffic police offices, drivers and consultants.
We are accredited by the DVSA, JAUPT, the FTA and CILT.
The DVSA and JAUPT are Department for Transport government bodies whilst the FTA - Freight Transport Association and CILT - the Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport, are world leaders in everything to do with haulage and storage and much, much more.
We offer courses for the Operator CPC, often known as the Transport Manager qualification, Driver CPC, driver training, in house assessor courses, a tachograph bureau, and much much more. Not least of which we offer a consultancy service to hauliers who need help with compliance or who find themselves appearing at a Traffic Commissioner Public Inquiry.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you can navigate your way around and find the help you need.
