About Us

WJ Driver Training Academy offers driver training throughout the midlands and nationally.

WJ are now able to offer LGV training service to both Commercial Customers and to members of the general public wishing to obtain an LGV licence. We currently have three excellent dedicated training vehicles,  a Volvo FM9 (Cat C),  DAF CF65 (Cat C) and a (Cat C+E) Volvo FM9 automatic coupled to a 40′ twin axle trailer . All training and subsequent LGV tests are carried out at the depot, with the practical driving element being conducted in the Newcastle Staffordshire area, a distinct advantage for local Driver’s.
Since October 2011 WJ has also been an approved CPC training centre delivering all your training needs on site at the Newcastle under Lyme depot.

“Higher than average pass rates, due to our tailored approach to training guaranteeing a personal and quality service

WJ has been operating as a DVSA approved LGV testing centre. Since early 2013, Staff from all WJ depots across the country have been successfully passing their LGV test at the Newcastle under Lyme depot under the guidance of our DVSA qualified LGV trainers. The majority of our vehicles do not require an LGV licence as they are classed as Mobile plant vehicles and are therefore LGV licence exempt, however as part of WJ’s commitment to Road Safety all drivers of LGV’s are being put through the LGV course. Once an LGV licence is obtained, CPC regulations state that a Driver must undertake 35 hours of compulsory training every five years.

“New drivers now requiring an Initial CPC qualification”

All LGV Driver Training is delivered on a one to one basis, guaranteeing a personal and quality service. We specialise in all LGV training.

New drivers now requiring an Initial CPC qualification, they can train and qualify for this qualification on site (usually done during the same week), with the CPC practical (Mod 4) test usually being conducted on the same day, eliminating the need for an extra visit to the test centre.

“Most competitive prices”

With training being conducted as a subsidiary on site here in Newcastle-under-Lyme Staffordshire our prices for undertaking these qualification is highly competitive, this along with our impressive LGV pass rates make us an ideal choice for LGV Driver Training in the Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent areas.
