Welcome to Protea Training


Protea Training has been delivering Driver CPC training since 2009. We specialise in  providing  driver CPC training for agency drivers  and general hauliers.


Protea Training's ethos of delivering 'Drivers CPC for Drivers by  Drivers' ensures that we provide the highest quality of training. Our trainers have over 25 years of LGV  Driving experience and understand that most drivers would prefer to be out on the road, rather than sitting in a classroom. Our primary goal is to offer a fun, friendly, relaxed learning environment that everyone feels comfortable in.
