Approved Organisation of the RTITB LGV Driver Training Standard

Our flexible and engaging driver training courses all meet the LGV Driver Training Standard from RTITB – an audit-based approval system relating to instructors, vehicles and premises. This means that our training gives drivers not only the best licence acquisition training (all 4 modules) for categories C1, C1E, C, C+E, D1and D, but also makes them truly “workplace ready” and not just compliant with legislation.

RTITB is the UK’s leading workplace transport training accrediting body. By achieving the LGV Driver Training Standard we demonstrate our commitment to safety and high quality training.
