Training expansion for Peter Smythe

Peter Smythe has acquired Darren Shaw Training of Dronfield. “We were given the opportunity as Darren was moving out of the area,” explains Peter. “This acquisition broadens our local coverage to include South Yorkshire and further into Derbyshire. Peter Smythe Transport Training has been operating since 1985, is NVDIR-registered and had the very first private driving test centre in the UK.”

Based in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, the company operates a purpose-built training centre featuring its own workshops and two reversing areas.

Backing up the team of fully qualified and registered instructors is a fleet of modern vehicles, and new ones are added each year.

For many years, Peter Smythe Transport Training has offered residential courses to candidates living more than 70 miles from the training centre. “At any one time, there are a number of candidates staying with us,” concludes Peter.
