The first four trainees have completed their courses at Gregory Group’s Transport Training Academy which was officially opened on 30th January at Cullompton by Neil Parish, MP for Tiverton and Honiton.
Daniel Boardman, Scott Stevenson, and Paul Ayres all achieved their Category C LGV licence. Samantha Baker also recently achieved a Category C LGV licence.
Parish said: “I think this initiative is great for Cullompton, Devon and for the whole country because Gregory is training up to 100 drivers a year. We need good quality LGV drivers and I think it is excellent what they are doing here.”
Up to ten drivers a month will be drawn from existing company personnel, suitable external candidates and individuals through the Prince’s Trust who will be trained initially to LGV Category C standard.
