More Details

HGV Driver Training 

I started at Big Wheelers as an Instructor In 2005 after working as a PCV Bus Driver in London and C+E Class 1 Driver around Heathrow, London and the home counties.

I had always wanted to become an Instructor and felt lucky to be given the chance.

Kim Driver Training started offering driver training in Berkshire in 2008, as I love this profession and wanted to build on my training. With over 25 years of Transport experience, continually improving my skills. With 15 years in the training industry and 12 years of operating Kim Driver Training.

I’m still humbled, privileged, and amazed at all the stories, emotions and good people I have had the opportunity to meet and train.

We love to be part of this community, and we’re proud sposors of Laurel Park FC.
