So glad I was recommended to SDF, I can not rate this company enough! They wer both friendly and professional and I truly believe they love and take pride in their job and within the company. They provide fabulous instruction with lovely modern/smart lorry’s that made it a pleasurable experience taking my licence. I passed in less time then I thought I would have needed and I felt genuinely ready to conquer the roads in my lorry after.
Thank you so much to the whole team at SDF I will no doubt recommend you to anyone wanting to take an additional licence and I will be back if I need to!

I will 100% be returning to Simon to complete my future training and look forward to getting behind the wheel!
I enjoyed doing my trailer course with Simon. He gave me clear and precise instructions on what to do and how to improve my driving as well as giving me enough confidence to feel fully ready for the test.The Vehicle and trailer were both top quality and a pleasure to drive.
Friendly and Thorough
Spent two days with SDF doing my trailer test, and I have nothing but kind words to say about all the staff. Super friendly and helpful in every way and made me feel at ease with simple but clear learning instructions.
Specialized Driving Force
I would like to thank Simon Austin for his patience and understanding and amazing ability to teach you in a way that makes you feel extremely confident in your approach to driving, firstly he manages to get your head right so you may tackle things with ease, then the art of driving a ten meter vehicle with confidence , road positioning and getting your speed right on approach and accelerating away and also the observation all seems to gel by day three, I did not realize this till it basically happened as with the reverse parking, listen to what he says and you will pass, DEFINITELY ..
Nice man, Fantastic teacher, enough said..

I trained with Specialist Driving
I trained with Specialist Driving Force for my Class 2 LGV. From the outset they were very helpful. I was initially booked in for an assesment drive and then I was booked in for a weeks trainging with the test on the Friday.
Both Martin and Simon were extremely helpful and made sure thatI fully understood and practised every aspect of the test. Everything was done in a proffessional and constructive manner and it was good to see progress through the week.
I would highly recommend the company for training and I plan to return soon to complete the CPC course that they offer.

Outstanding in every way.
I recently undertook HGV C E (Articulated Lorry) training with SDF ltd, I have to say it was an absolute pleasure being taught by Simon and Martin, they are professional down to the last detail… The vehicles are kept to an extremely high standard, always spotlessly clean and tidy and very well maintained too. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending SDF to anyone thinking of undertaking any sort of driver training… and it was all topped off with a pass 1st time for me with only one minor fault! What else can I say. Top job.
