Drivetrain is owned and operated by Julian and Ann Clark. Julian spent the early 1970s driving LGV 1 reefer trucks around the UK and Europe before going into Transport Management with the same renowned Logistics company. He spent 21 years with them and worked his way up to Distribution Manager. During the latter time with them, he found himself as the CPC holder on the O Licence for three depots on the outskirts of London. The depots were distribution centres for three prestigious High Street names. When Julian and Ann started up a specialist recruitment business for Drivers and Logistics staff, they realized that there was virtually no formal training, for drivers especially. So they set about developing basic workshops to train drivers about hours legislation, correct use of tachographs and completion of charts. "We found that drivers did the vocational training and took their test and somehow, miraculously they were supposed to know all about drivers hours legislation without any training! The best that could be hoped for would be help from their mates in a transport cafe. There were a number of misconceptions as a result of this type of knowledge gathering" says Julian.
from the humble beginnings of occasional workshops, DRIVETRAIN can now offer a well established suite of courses. We also partner with other reputable training facilities to offer further training opportunities for individuals and businesses alike through our "one-stop" shop.
