Heads of the Valleys Training


    Published Thursday 22 October, 6.00PM

    We have been informed in the last hour that all practical driving tests and theory tests scheduled between 6PM on Friday 23 October to Monday 09 November have been suspended.

    If your training or test falls within these dates then unfortunately it will not be going ahead. We will be contacting all those affected by email tomorrow with further instructions. We will be working hard over the next two weeks to reschedule your course and be in touch as soon as possible.

    This announcement does NOT effect driver medicals scheduled at our clinics. If you have a medical appointment booked then this will be going ahead as planned.

    We would like to apologise for the convenience this will inevitably cause. We have worked hard over the last few months to get back up and running and are saddened to yet again be temporarily closing our doors. Our office staff will be working remotely throughout this period and will be contactable by telephone or email. 

    We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you back to the centre as soon as possible.

    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.
