First-class transport and logistics training in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Wolverhampton

The Transport department at GTG has been delivering training to all sectors of the transport and logistics industry for over 30 years. Our training courses range from driver and forklift training to classroom-based courses such as ADR, Driver CPC and national/international CPC courses.

Our transport training courses take place at our three training centres in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Wolverhampton, which are all DVSA approved and equipped with dedicated manoeuvring areas. We also provide courses promoting the importance of health and safety in the transport sector as well as Modern Apprenticeships in logistics and construction.

Keeping you safe while you train

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, GTG has introduced enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures. All vehicles and forklifts are disinfected after each use, and face coverings are compulsory for both instructors and delegates. Classroom capacities have reduced and sanitising stations are available throughout each of our centres.

Driver Training

GTG's experienced instructors hold nationally recognised qualifications awarded by the NVDIR (National Vocational Driving Instructor Register) and the RTITB (Road Transport Industry Training Board) and courses are continually assessed by awarding bodies.

If you're looking to boost your career or stay up to date with industry best practice, transport training courses at GTG can help you on the road to success.

Driver CPC Courses

GTG offers a range of JAUPT-approved Driver CPC training courses, taught by highly qualified instructors. By law, professional drivers of lorries, buses and coaches must complete 35 hours of training every five years to keep their CPC valid. So, whether you're a new or experienced driver, our CPC courses can help keep you on the road.

National CPC courses

Under operator licencing legislation, all holders of National/International Operator licences are also required to hold (or employ someone who holds), a certificate of professional competence (CPC).

Both our accredited courses for the Freight and Passenger Industry covers covers the syllabus of Oxford Cambridge RSA Examinations (OCR) incorporating all areas of the transport industry - from health and safety and business law to technical standards of operation.

National courses

ADR training courses

An ADR vocational certificate remains valid for five years and gives drivers the authority to transport dangerous goods by road.

GTG provides a range of initial and refresher courses covering first aid, fire precautions and more, helping drivers become skilled in the carriage of dangerous goods across all classes.

Customer Testimonials

"I'd like to praise Paul Tumulka who was my ADR trainer. Right from the outset, Paul was on the ball in terms of how well he was organised and how he welcomed us to the centre and the course. The course was quite intense but Paul made the experience being very smooth and pleasurable. I was looking forward every morning to going back, including on the exam day. Paul's knowledge and experience is beyond any words. He was very professional and funny, he was able to go the extra mile giving us real examples and making sure we knew exactly what he was talking about. Paul seems to love what he does and it makes a huge difference. He is simply the right person in the right position. Having now dealt with two of GTG's trainers (John Burns being the other one), I have a very good and positive opinion about GTG and their standards. That reassures me personally that my Class 1 instructor will possess the same high standards. I am looking forward to getting on the next course provided by GTG. Please rest assured that I will be recommending your company as the best training provider in our region."
