At Beyond Driving, safety and proficiency are at the core of our training philosophy. This week, our RoSPA assured trailer training instructor team had the privilege of delivering the Trailer Handling Course to the dedicated professionals at BT (British Telecom) at their sites in Cardiff and Enfield.
Expert Instructors for Comprehensive Training
Our instructors are not just qualified driving instructors; they are also RoSPA certified 4×4 and trailer trainers. This additional certification reflects our commitment to providing training conducted to the highest standards, with a focus on occupational road risk issues associated with trailer use.
