NDS can guarantee you the opportunity to an interview for a driving position.

If you have a restricted budget we can arrange Finance for you.

Whether you have acquired rights (grandfather rights) or are a new starter wanting to get into the transport industry we will hold your hand and take you through the Driver CPC options.

We have a fully approved DVSA assessor for the Module 4 syllabus which again means you are trained and assessed at our DVSA Approved Customer Driving Test Centre.

We have completely overhauled the Module 4 syllabus to ensure you fully understand it and can demonstrate your knowledge to your future employer and peers.
