Delivering LANTRA Accredited Trailer Handling Training to National Grid in Worcester

At Beyond Driving, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of driver and operator training across the UK. Today, we are proud to have successfully delivered our LANTRA Accredited trailer handling course to the National Grid team in Worcester. It was a great day of training, filled with hands-on learning and practical assessments.

LANTRA Certified Instructors

While there is no legal requirement to use DVSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) for B+E training, our instructors bring a unique blend of qualifications to the table. Our team consists of qualified driving instructors who are also LANTRA certified 4×4 and trailer trainers. This dual certification ensures that our training is conducted with the highest level of expertise, addressing the inherent occupational road risk associated with trailer use. This added level of expertise provides both us and you with the confidence that the training meets the highest industry standards.
