Testimonials Advanced driver training Birmingham

Advanced driver training Birmingham
  • May I take this opportunity to thank Advanced Driver Services (ADS), on behalf of Acumen drivers at the St. Helens Depot and also myself. Both Alan and Denis were very professional and carried out the training to an excellent standard.

    Adrian, Contracts Manager, Acumen

  • I always considered myself to be a reasonably competent driver but my time with Denis made me realise just how little I knew and how much money I was wasting! I now drive with more confidence, arrive at my destination feeling fresher and more alert and have improved my fuel efficiency by about 5 mpg. I would recommend Advanced Driver Services to anybody who drives on business.

    Graham – Henry Graham Ltd

  • I gained a lot from those four hours; many of the points you raised have embedded themselves into my brain, especially the points that I hadn't previously thought about. Consequently, I find myself driving with an inner voice, & being critical with myself (I'm nearly always alone). I wouldn't boast that I've lost all old bad habits, but I certainly haven't forgotten what you taught me. It was enjoyable, & valuable, & I'd recommend you to anyone interested.

    David - Yapp Design

  • I wasn't expecting it to be for the whole day, but glad that it was as undoubtedly I underestimated how much can be learnt about advanced driving. Denis is an excellent instructor.

    P Poyntz - St Jude Medical

  • As an HR professional it is extremely important to my clients that their businesses run smoothly and effectively. They appreciate the right advice at the right time that helps them to be cost effective but also ensures the safety of their employees at all times. The training, advice and support provided by ADS Ltd ensures that the Company can spend less time worrying about these kind of issues and focus on what it does best. I would not hesitate in recommending ADS Ltd to all HR’s out there whether they have a fleet of just one or two Company vehicles or hundreds to manage.

    Sue – Action HR

  • Acumen Distribution Limited has developed a training partnership with ADS over the last few years, and we have found ADS to be very responsive and flexible in providing training solutions tailored around our specific requirements.

    Sue Preston, HR Manager, Acumen Distribution Limited

  • Good balance of theory and practice. The session confirmed to me what I was doing well and where further improvements could be made. Many improvements have since resulted from the session and I would now like to take the Advanced Test. BM


  • I had an excellent day and the instruction that was given has opened my eyes to a less stressful and safer way of driving.
