Are you looking to be a qualified fleet instructor trainer?
At Parrys Driver Training, we are dedicated to road safety and we ourselves do as much CPD (Continuing Professional Development) as possible, so we do not ask from company's that we will not do ourselves. We have a team of experienced fleet driver trainers who will professionally deliver a course that will not only help reduce your company costs but can also gain each one of your drivers a qualification in driving. They could gain BTEC Level 2 Demonstrate Safe Driving (Car).
We can offer this course free with each Fleet Driver Training session we carry out. There will be some additional work for your drivers to do in their personal / home time to gain this qualification. For more information on this see, our BTEC Level 2 page.
Registration can be obtained by successful completion of the following three examinations which include:
• Theory Test

You must apply for registration within 12 months of successfully completing the fleet driver training course.
You have a maximum of three attempts at each of the qualifying tests. If you do not pass in three attempts you must wait until the end of your 1 year period before you can apply to re-start the qualification process, starting with the theory test.
