Huge congratulations to Chris Rolfe, who took and passed his class 2 driving test today at his FIRST TIME attempt. Chris started his training on day one with Carlie, our female HGV instructor. He then completed day 2 with our head of Truck School, Mike. Back to Carlie for day 3 and today, Mike actually attended the driving test with Chris. Even with all of this moving backwards and forwards, Chris was able to take on board the advice from both trainers and today, he put all o
Well done to Owain Powell, who took and passed his class 1 driving test today. Owain only really needed his C1+E entitlement but as he already had the class 2 (Cat C), there was little point in going to a lower grade. So up to the big boys Owain went. Owain came to Truck School for an assessment a few weeks ago and we came up with a plan of action for the training. He was already reasonably good with his reversing and the driving was also good. So we planned a training schedu
A huge congratulations to Liam, who took and passed his class 1 artic driving test today. Liam is the eldest son of our instructor, Daren and Liam has spread his training over a few weeks due to work commitments. In actual fact, Liam has had very little training to reach today's result and to be honest, we were a little concerned that he had not done enough. However, he proved us all wrong by passing at his first time attempt and with ONLY 4 driver faults too! Well done Liam!
Jay Philpott took and passed his class 1, Cat C+E test today. He has not handed over a penny for this week of training or the test as he funded the course by taking a student loan and completing a BREC level 3 diploma in customer service. When Jay completed that, we were able to offer him a weeks course with a practical driving test at the end, all funded through the government student loans process. Jay has been a pleasure to teach. He listened and took on board the coachin
Today saw the end of 5 days driver training for Stuart Hallam as he took and passed his class 1 artic test. Stuart works for our sponsor, Massey Willcox Transport and has been employed with them for a while 3 weeks now. He was told that he would be considered to be put through his class 1 after at least 3 months... we were asked last week when we could possibly complete the training and I think we shocked them st Massey Willcox when we said ‘next week’?? Nevertheless, Stuart

Cilla Gillard passed her HGV class 2 test yesterday at Kingswood. This has been a very well deserved result as she has been working very hard whilst fitting in the training. #FundedHGVTraining #HGVtraining #HGVTrainingRadstock
Angelika took and passed her class 2 driving test this morning in the Bristol Kingswood test centre. Angelika is known to us in the office as 'Bob' (don't ask), and Bob learnt to drive out 18 tonne Renault curtainsider with Sean. This lorry has 8 gears with a split shift gear box and it does take some getting used to. However, Bob got the hang of it with relative ease. Sean did a good job at teaching Bob but unfortunately, her nerves got the better of her on her first test. I
