>> Driver Training Plus

>>Driver Training Plus (DTP) is an Australian Capital Territory (ACT) based Heavy Vehicle Driver Training business whose primary function is to assist current Transport Industry Drivers or those wishing to enter the Road Transport Industry.

Whether you wish to gain your Heavy Vehicle Licence or upskill to a higher class we can help you. The Road Transport Freight task is increasing dramatically every year and the future for employment within the Road Transport Industry has never been better.

We can provide training in your vehicle or ours. If you provide the vehicle we come to your location saving you downtime and inconvenience and at no extra cost (if your vehicle is within a 30km radius of Civic).

Training is provided in sessions of a minimum of 2 hours. A record of training is kept on each student and feedback is provided during and on completion of each session.
