Durham firm provides commercial vehicle driver training 08 March 2011

A firm has been set up to try and help North East truckers with the ever-changing legal aspects of the transport industry, while also boosting their job satisfaction.

Durham Tees Valley Training (DTVT) is the brainchild of entrepreneur Robin Raine, who says he is hoping to capitalise on a gap in the market for a training service with up-to-date knowledge of changes in legislation within the heavily regulated industry.

The company will offer official Driver CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence) training, as well as general transport driver training.

Other services will include health and safety training, courses on the use of digital tachograph systems and Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) courses.

DTVT will also focus on the continual development of company workforces, help transport bosses cut costs and maximise profits and improve the productivity and morale among driving staff.

"I was constantly hearing about the difficulties transport companies were having receiving the right information regarding legislation changes and everyone had a different take on it," says Raine.

"We train from experience and will adapt our training to suit the clients operation," he continues. "We not only enthuse the drivers with information they enjoy learning about, but also the driver gets to know more about the company they work for and what the business owner has to endure when running a successful business."
