Driver Skills Training has delivered the Driver CPC Program since 2009. We have centres throughout the East Midlands including Mansfield, Newark, Chesterfield, Sheffield and Alfreton. If you are based elsewhere, don’t worry! We also often deliver Driver CPC Training at our Customers premises throughout the country.

We were the second organisation based outside London to be registered by Transport for London to deliver FORS approved training. All our courses focus on vulnerable road users and are approved for Driver CPC accreditation by JAUPT on behalf of the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

We are now an independent JAUPT approved centre. We started out as a founding member of the RTITB Consortium which is the largest consortium delivering Driver CPC with over 200 centres throughout the UK.

Colin and Frances of Driver Skills Training provided invaluable help, support and guidance when we were preparing for our FORS bronze accreditation. They took us through the accreditation requirements step by step and we were over the moon when we achieved our bronze award at the first attempt.

We have used Henford Associates T/A Driver Skills Training, since May 2011, as our Driver CPC Trainer and they have consistently provided us with an excellent service.

When we decided to apply for the FORS Bronze Award in 2016, we asked for their help as they provided the Safe Urban Driving course (SUD) which we have attended; with their assistance we gained the award in October 2016.

Again, in October 2017 with the assistance of Driver Skills Training, we were able to renew our Bronze Award. Colin has been in Transport for many years, his knowledge and experience is exceptional.

We heartily recommend Driver Skills Training as Consultants and Trainers.

Shepherd Distribution Services (SDS) have been utilising the outstanding services of Driver Skills Training over the past 5+ years.

At SDS we strive to provide the best service available to our extensive customer base and we too require the same from our suppliers and I am happy to report that Driver Skills Training meet that standard.

The driving force behind this successful team is led by both Frances and Colin Tuck; nothing is too much trouble for them and the after-market assistance is second to none, it is a dream to have them working alongside us, thank you!

We have been provided with fantastic support and assistance providing us with first rate packages for all our company’s requirements in relation to Driver CPC and Safe Urban Driver (SUD) training modules.

The SDS 70+ team of professional LGV drivers have been afforded excellent, informative and knowledgeable training sessions and each of these are delivered by Driver Skills Training to the highest standards possible.

The positive feedback as received from our drivers after attending one of the planned Driver CPC modules ensures that we keep re-booking their services.

If you are considering contacting Driver Skills Training for any of your training needs I would urge you to do so, there are only so many training days each year and I assure you that they would be better attended with them

However please don’t all book at once as I may well be doing myself a disservice due to the fact that all bookings were to be filled thus leaving me to find a lesser training provider!

Joking aside I would be more than happy to discuss my experiences with Driver Skills Training one on one should you wish to do so, I am easy to track down I work for the best road haulier in Sheffield.

Having worked with Colin Tuck of Driver Skills Training on our Driver CPC Training over the past 6 years, we have always found the service personal and the training tailored to our requirement with good feedback from the Drivers about the level of knowledge displayed. There is no doubt that we will continue to work with Colin, to assist us in meeting our CPC legal requirements, whilst looking to push through business improvements within the Training. We would recommend Colin Tuck of Driver Skills Training to anyone who requires a top level of Training in the Road Haulage Industry.

Driver Skills Training can be relied upon to provide an excellent service. For the past 3 years they have provided our company with our entire Driver CPC training. They have also given us facility to tailor specific courses to our company’s needs. The Safe Urban Driving (SUD) course is a prime example of this and we as a company are now compliant in legislation and processes such as the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) initiative. To that end SDS has become the first Road Haulage firm in South Yorkshire to Gold FORS Accredited and Driver Skill Training has definitely assisted us in making that journey.
We have been working with Driver Skills Training for a number of years and have used their services for a number of applications which have been of great benefit to our organisation. They have provided bespoke vehicle user handbooks that are specific to each of our specialist equipment. We regularly use Driver Skills Training to assess our drivers. The flexibility offered also allows for assessments to be tailored to our needs. This helps us ensure our staff represent ICS in a professional manner and keep accident rates to a minimum; this in turn helps to reduce our insurance premiums. Driver Skills Training have supplied Drivers CPC training to a number of our staff from Drivers to Director, all attendees report a professional, concise and enjoyable course. We would have no hesitation in recommending Driver Skills Training to any company in the transport industry.
We commenced with Driver CPC Training in 2009. We were not altogether happy with the course content or the presentation of the training body we were using. In January 2012 we changed to Driver Skills Training and there was an immediate improvement. The Drivers are eager to complete the training and courses are soon filled. We are satisfied with the content of the the courses and any specific issues we wanted have been addressed. The courses cover all aspects of transport operations and I would not hesitate in recommending Driver Skill Training for Driver CPC Training
Our first session of Driver CPC training last Saturday was a huge success. The feedback I have received from our drivers was very positive – they thought the presentation was excellent. Most were happy to be pointed in the right direction with regard to working time and drivers hours – not to mention breaks and POA !!! Many thanks for making the day both interesting and enjoyable.
