Refresher / Driver Assessment 

Course Information

Our refresher training courses are designed to enhance and assess your skills and expertise behind the wheel of any size or type of vehicle.

You may have recently acquired your licence and wish to further improve your skills before going into the workplace, or you may be returning to the industry after an absence and want to refresh your skills. You may have recently purchased a caravan or motorhome and wish to make sure you have the necessary skills to hit the road.

This is a certificated course, with a written assessment report, and whilst it doesn’t provide a guarantee for employment, it can help to boost your experience and employability. Some companies may be able to use this to reduce insurance liabilities if drivers have attended this training. As a company you may want to send an employee to complete a refresher. 

The course is bespoke and based on your individual requirements. It is usually run as a half day course with the training equipment supplied at our Shrewsbury, Telford or Wrexham site, or you can supply your own equipment. The course can be provided at your location nationwide, additional costs may apply.

Low rate finance packages are available to spread the costs. T&C's apply. 

Please contact us for more information or to discuss your requirements on 01952 770659.

Amazing experience - it’s taken me more thank one go to get my licence and the only reason I continued is because of the amazingly calm, professional and encouraging manner of all Dulson staff. From the original enquiry through to the test, there is nothing they could have done better. Highly recommend.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the course content and the trainers who delivered them.

It was easy to book the days that suited me over a two week period and to complete each one. Pat was extremely helpful at every stage and made the process simple and easy with great communication along the way.

It is clear that your team strive to excel and exceed expectations, and on this they delivered it all.

What was also pleasing was that it was interactive and participative with the training team having good interpersonal skills and humour making all the subjects easy to engage with and get the most out of.

Please pass on my thanks to them all.

Just like to add no driver looks forward to their cpc courses Neil & Rose made the course as painless as possible the time flew by, whilst it was done remotely with limitations on discussions we still managed to have some form of discussion between new drivers and the more seasoned drivers.  I would just like to extend my thanks to Neil, Rose and Pat very friendly team very helpful and may possibly be back to add to my CPC hours in the future I will be recommending Dulson in the future.

From the initial phone call to pat about wanting to go for my cat c license right up to steve driving me back from the test site to rodenhurst and everything in between was just brilliant. Loved the cpc modules and steve is an asset to the company. The driving assessment was perfect and the fella that assessed me was brilliant. John was an absolutely fantastic trainer and a really nice fella. Super supportive and encouraging and its because of his wealth of knowledge and information he handed down to me I passed first time. So from start to finish I couldn't have been happier.. thank you

Everything was absolutely faultless from the moment I first called the office to the moment I left after passing my test. First impressions were very good as the office staff explained everything I needed to do with a provisional and theory tests etc. They sent a full information pack of forms out that i found very useful and made the whole process easy. This is something that stood out to me as other driver training businesses didn’t give me a good first impression. Even though I didn’t pass first time(my fault), Steve and his team worked very hard in finding me a test as soon as possible and at the right time for myself. They were great.

I would like to thank Steve Dulson for organising my training days and I would also like to say a special thankyou to John Challenor who was my coach trainer. The training was well planned with structured lessons. I couldn't have asked for anything more, passing both my cpc mod 4 and pcv practical tests 1st attempt on the same day. A massive thank you to all at Dulson Training for making me feel very welcome.

Just a quick thankyou after having passed my LGV C test this morning and a special thankyou to Allan for his patience and persistence; I really believe that even if I'd failed the test today I would still have emerged a better driver after having met Allan
