Eddie Stobart’s
driving school

Comprehensive LGV training
from Eddie Stobart.

We’ve been developing the best drivers on the UK’s roads since the ‘60s, and in 2013 we opened our very own driving school to the public.

We’ll take you from a class B driver’s licence to hitting the road behind the wheel of an Eddie Stobart LGV.

With comprehensive courses run by a team of fully qualified trainers, dedicated training space and in-house testing, we’re your one-stop shop to becoming an LGV driver.

Our schools

We have two training centres located close to some of the UK’s main motorways in Warrington and Rugby.

Both locations boast dedicated, fit-for-purpose training facilities.

Why train with us

Our drivers are among the best on Europe’s roads; they receive the highest quality training from our highly-qualified, dedicated trainers. And now this service is available to you!

Our team will take you through every step of your journey onto the road. Train in our famous trucks, specially fitted for driver training, and in our for-purpose training facilities. Then take your exams on-site with our in-house examiner and get behind the wheel as Eddie Stobart’s newest driver: successful completion guarantees a job!

What you will experience

Following the application and interview process our team of licensed trainers will be with you every step of the way; from day one behind the wheel in our specially-commissioned training vehicles, right up to the day of your test.

Candidates study theory, hazard perception and case studies before getting behind the wheel in one of our trucks. Practical training takes place on pre-approved routes local to the schools and manoeuvres on our 28,000 square feet private yards, away from distractions and hazards. Candidates receive approximately 20 hours experience behind the wheel and 20 hours observation in-cab.

Meet the examiner

We even have our own DVSA-delegated examiner who’ll carry out your tests on site, so there’ll be no surprises and no delays.

Glen Moule has been in the haulage industry for over 30 years, 20 years of them as a driver trainer and examiner. He was with the Driving Standards Agency for over 10 years performing driving tests on cars, bikes, trucks and buses.

Success stories

Find out what past candidates think of the Eddie Stobart driving school. 

We’re extremely proud of the hard work that goes into making our driving school a first-class training facility. We believe we provide our candidates with the best driving tuition and personal support available, and with a guarantee of employment upon completion, all successful candidates now drive our trucks. Below is genuine feedback from past candidates.

“I would like to thank my instructor for preparing me for the test. I had a bad experience last Friday because I was driving this truck like I was driving class 2 trucks. Without considering the gauge and speed for this truck. I was dangerous and was close to ending the course. We had a rough time on Friday, he was very hard with me, but this helped me to understand how important it is to be safe on the road all the time and to always concentrate.”

“I did not do well myself at the beginning, especially with the reversing exercise. I required more time. However, Lee made extra time for me in the mornings and for that I am truly grateful. This is an excellent facility.”

“I thought the instructor was great, very thorough and always gave praise and gave pointers when needed if a mistake was made. I thought the driving time I had was sufficient. I felt confident going into the test after all the instruction I had all week.”

“Alan my instructor was excellent at his job. Made sure you practiced more on your weak points. Explained everything clearly. If you did anything wrong he made sure you got it right next time. Overall excellent. Great trainer. Thanks Al.”

“Instructor delivered the training in a calm but positive manner. He gave encouragement and positive feedback when appropriate. When faults were highlighted this was always followed up with helpful advice and instruction.”
