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.
Our instructors are 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. 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. Which is why TRIG was established.

Established in 1987, as Central Learner Driving, and became Central Driver Training Ltd who 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, we are members 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 directors have a Cardington A, only available to driving instructors, is considered to be the highest driving qualification available to instructors. We also belong to a recognised organisation 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.

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.

Our driving school is ORDIT registered and is available to view on ORDIT website.

All of our instructors receive quality control supervision at regular intervals to ensure a high standard of instruction.

All instructors are DBS checked and approved by the DVSA.
