Anne and Ian Green, were both already involved in driver training before they met in 2007, and as they say the rest is history.

Their mutual interest in road safety and reducing the KSI rate (Killed and Seriously Injured) here in the UK led to the integration of their two driving schools, initially into Central Learner Driving based in Bedford and then in 2010 it morphed into Central Driver Training Ltd based in Rushden Northants.
Both are still entrenched in the quest for further qualifications, with even a little light-hearted in house competitiveness. This quest means that all pupils, trainees or clients reap the benefits of their efforts. Passing on these skills at all levels from novice drivers to trainers looking to achieve higher qualifications themselves.

They have an ethos of “We would rather explain the price of quality than have to apologise for something less” this is now the driving force behind Central Driver Training Ltd and their sister business A I Solutions. Another mission is to foster a local instructor community, in an otherwise normally insular working environment, where instructors and trainers can meet with fellow trainers and keep up to date with changes in the industry or just to talk shop.

Established in 1987, between them they have over 40 years of experience, Central Driver Training Ltd offer free theory help to learner drivers with their quest to drive, running classroom sessions for larger groups along with additional educational courses. On road they have a multitude of experience to individually cater for every learner driver, believing that one size does not fit all.

Keeping up to date with all the latest changes within the industry, Ian is a member of RoSPA, IAM, DIA and holds their advanced driving qualifications at the highest level, along with many other qualifications that include the City and Guilds teaching certificate, and diplomas in Driving Instruction, Coaching and NLP. Both Ian and Anne have a Cardington A, only available to driving instructors, is considered to be the highest driving qualification available to instructors. Anne also shares some of the qualifications Ian holds and also belongs to recognised organisations that pride professionalism, includes membership of IMTD (Institute of Master Tutors of Driving) whose motto is “Only the best shall serve”. They have both completed certificates covering the changes in the equality, diversity and discrimination law.

Anne and Ian are very proud that at Central Driver Training Ltd, training is available for licence holders looking for extra driving skills and certificates, in class and on road training for driving instructors looking to further their skills and add to their qualifications. They provide training for company car drivers and on rehabilitation schemes for drivers. Quality is paramount, only the best will do.

Other instructors who work for them at any point will have to be trained to a high standard, hold additional qualifications or have been trained at Central Driver Training Ltd. This guarantees all clients from learners through to advanced drivers the best tutoring available.
