Dulson Training drive training expansion into Wrexham
Training specialist drives forward with Wrexham expansion
A Shropshire driver training specialist has expanded into Wrexham - recording a 100
per cent first-time pass rate at its new site since lockdown restrictions eased.
Dulson Training also has centres in Telford, Rodenhurst and Shrewsbury and views
the Wrexham expansion as the next logical step for the company to meet the
growing demand for its services.
Steve Dulson, of Dulson Training, said: “We actually opened our Wrexham site in
January 2020 but only managed a couple of months of driver training and testing
before lockdown. We had a brief reopening at the end of summer when more training
and testing was successfully delivered from our Rhosddu Industrial Estate site
before going back into lockdown.
“Finally, all restrictions were lifted in April - 15 months after opening the site and we
are now delivering a full range of courses in Wrexham using the public test facility at
Llay. It’s gone really well and I am proud that we have achieved a 100 per cent first-
time pass rate in Wrexham since reopening on April 12.
“We operate national training contracts and were looking for a training location
slightly further north. With another of our established sites sitting on the
Wales/England border in Shrewsbury, we were already servicing the requirements
for many people living in Wales.
“Some of our instructors live in Wales and Wrexham felt like a great fit -
complementing our Telford site that provides a service further east and into the West
Wrexham courses offered by Dulson Training include full licence acquisition training
and tests or refresher assessment training for B+E Car & Trailer, C1 Ambulance, C
HGV Class 2 and C+E HGV Class 1. The company also provides PCV training for
minibus or full-size coach through a collaboration with training partners Lakeside
Coaches of Ellesmere.
The new centre’s wide range of training opportunities also include caravan and
motorhome handling courses, accredited First Aid training, classroom and remote
Driver CPC and ADR - Carrying Hazardous Goods as well as a full range of
accredited RTITB MHE Forklift and lorry mounted crane training courses.
“I believe with our new training equipment, experienced and friendly instructors and
our impressive record of results, we will be a great training partner for anyone who is
looking to up-skill or move into a new career,” Steve added.
Dulson Training already has an established reputation for customer service and its
professional approach to driver training. The firm’s sites in Shrewsbury, Rodenhurst
and Telford include private driving test facilities, RTITB forklift centre and classrooms
for ADR, Driver CPC and First Aid training.
The company offers full driver, warehouse and workplace training solutions and
through its Shropshire and Wrexham training sites, is able to provide a reliable
service to Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, West Midlands, Herefordshire, North
and Mid Wales.
"We are proud to offer a fully managed service, helping the learner at every stage
and we offer a free driving assessment to establish how many lessons may be
needed,” said Steve. “With intensive courses available, very impressive pass rates,
our own in-house DVSA assessors and the capacity to keep waiting times to a
minimum, we are able to meet the high expectations that people expect from Dulson
The company is able to offer a range of payment options which can be spread over a
period of up to four years - an incentive to encourage anyone looking at driving as a
career during the current driver shortage or adding to their qualifications.
Training is also available to young job seekers using the Kickstart scheme, and
ReAct funding is available for a range of courses to help those who are being made
or have recently been made redundant.
