Our Co-ordinators our specially trained and are on hand whenever you need them. They will assist and guide you through the licence acquisition process – which can be daunting and intimidating if you don’t know what you’re doing. Our TC’s will help you complete forms, assist in arranging medicals, help out with software issues and generally be on hand to ease your journey from trainee to fully-fledged HGV driver. A lot of our TC’s are ex-truckers – so they really understand and appreciate what it is you’re going through. We turn a complicated and potentially stressful process into a smooth, effortless transaction – and our testimonials and huge client base will back this up.
