COVID-19 Update (30 June 2020)

Staff are now returning to work due to customer demand. We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment for all visitors and staff at our training centre, ensuring a safe and protected environment.

DVSA practical tests will be available from the middle of July. Contact Joe Dalton on 01392 42 62 42 to book you place.

We are also getting busy on construction and agricultural plant, forklift and other types of training. Driver CPC is still being offered online at a greatly reduced price.

About Trans Plant Mastertrain

Trans Plant Training Limited was established in 1992 in Exeter, Devon and offered lorry and fork lift truck training. In 1994 Transplant Training Limited merged with Mastertrain of St. Austell and from that date we have traded as Trans Plant Mastertrain. The company has steadily grown and at present employs sixteen staff and has gained partnerships with local colleges,  and a vast array of loyal local companies throughout the south west.

We are renowned for offering a professional, friendly service, quality training and great value for money.

Professional plant and lorry training

Mainly serving Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset, we also support individuals and businesses across the rest of the United Kingdom and also internationally.

With our experience we understand the needs , requirements and expectations of customers and offer a very personal yet professional service at the highest of standards.

On your initial enquiry, you will receive a friendly, professional greeting followed by comprehensive information, advice and guidance.

Our unique, fully equipped training centre is situated at the Matford Centre, Marsh Barton, Exeter. From our centre we specialise in lorry training (all classes), car and trailer training, forklift training, Driver CPC modules, ADR training, Module 4 testing, Apprenticeship support and some Mobile Plant training. Being the only training school in the south west offering an off-road area has been a key provision and a great benefit to driver training. It enables you practice reversing and off-road manoeuvres without having to travel miles off test routes and reducing training time. We also invite trainees come in early after the first day and practice free of charge during their course.

LGV medicals are carried out at our training centre one day a month. With free parking and for only £50 give us a call.

Our fleet of vans and cars are utilised by our trainers to provide training at customers’ premises. We will travel throughout the United Kingdom and also internationally.
