Who are we?

We are a family run training centre situated in Abergavenny, South Wales, offering bespoke training solutions to the industrial, logistics and construction industries. Established in 1969, we cater for all fields of vocational driver training, Driver CPC, lift truck and industrial training plus land based and plant machinery qualifications.

Our instructors possess a wealth of knowledge and experience within the training and transport sectors. We pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service standards, offering free, friendly and helpful advice to all prospective trainees and clients.

In 2014 we became an approved DVSA test facility, allowing us to conduct practical driving tests from our centre in Abergavenny. In addition, our dedicated training centre hosts modern classrooms and both indoor and outdoor industrial lift truck training areas.

We are able to accredit courses to RTITB, City & Guilds or an in-house standard. Our instructors are able to travel and deliver training at your customer site if required.
