Our Training Centre is ideally situated inside The Livestock Centre on the Marsh Barton Industrial Estate, Exeter.

Our reputation is built upon a truly professional service, excellent training facilities and experienced qualified instructors delivering you the very best training possible.

We are proud to be the only training company in Devon that have the facility to offer an off-road practice/reversing area at our Training Centre.

This will give you the opportunity to build your confidence before you drive on the busy roads of Exeter.

Due to having this facility we do not have to allocate valuable training time, driving off test routes, to practice your reversing and manoeuvring techniques.

As if that wasn’t enough we are also situated just minutes from the DVSA Test Centre.

We are also a CITB approved testing site for Construction Plant training and tests.
