Beware of what you are buying if you are shopping around for a good truck driving or forklift training facility. Verify that you are going to be trained in Industry ready vehicles. We assure you that we are and we ask that you to preview our training fleet both inside and out.
Please make sure that you call us (phone 4634 0512) to get more information about our flexible booking times and learn more about the important fine details we go into when we undertake your truck driver training or forklift driver training.
It is worth the phone call.
