Bent over backwards to get me a test to pass my C1 before I graduate as a paramedic. Provided the training package for my theory test which was really good! They also managed to get me a test when none were available!! Great intensive training and booklet provided to cover ‘show me, tell me’s’ and other important things to consider when driving a larger vehicle. Two days was enough to feel confident on the third day for my test. Tony was a great instructor, as I’m sure the rest are too! If I required further training I would definitely come back and be trained by them. Extremely pleased and would recommend to anyone! A massive thank you to the team for getting me through the test!!! 🚑

If your looking for hgv driver training then look no further. I wouldn't want to use anyone else. The quality of training, value for money, professionalism and communication is second to none. From the first meeting with the Essex driver training team everything was looked after for me, all I had to do was turn up and perform. Robbo is an incredible instructor, he makes you feel at ease and confident right from your very first drive. Very knowledgeable and professional and also a great laugh! Hayley in the office does all the paperwork and booking of tests for you! What more could you ask for!? Would recommend to anyone thinking of driving hgv's, use these guys!! A massive thank you from me for getting me in and through my test even in these testing times! See you soon for my class 1

Top quality training!
Robbo is a legend, his knowledge and his ability to impart that is second to none. Positive and honest at all times and made it enjoyable from start to finish.

Can’t recommend a better company or a better instructor.

Thanks again!

My Dad passed his HGV course today with Essex Transport Training. The course was an intensive two day course delivered to an extremely high standard in very modern lorries. Robbo was an outstanding coach who trained Dad from scratch whilst managing to make hard work fun at the same time. You dont just pass you become a better driver as well. Well done to Craig from Suffolk Fire and Rescue who also passed today and thanks again Robbo.

from the first minute in training Robbie took us under his wing. his training instruction is both precise and exactly on point to get you to a standard to smash the test not just pass it.
the booklet given to brush up on various bits was a great help to get me prepared to be behind the wheel.
highly recommended on all fronts. brilliant banter throughout but always professional.

Having saved up all my hard earned money, I knew I could not afford to waste it therefore I did my research and chose Essex Transport Training to deliver my HGV driver needs. After a Mon - Fri course I must admit I was put through my paces but I felt ready for my test. My instructor was spot on and when he could not explain something for me to understand, he drew pictures on the white board and got his point through that way. A superb company and another happy customer. 
Do not delay, ring Essex Transport Training today. 
Daryl - Braintree 
I conducted a C+E course with team ETT and passed with NO minors (no faults), I was trained very well and felt very comfortable driving the 18m Scania. My instructor was passionate, knowledgeable and very friendly. I can now start a new job on 45K a year thanks to Essex Transport Training and their amazing staff. Hayley in the office was exceptional and helped me with all my form filling in and everything else that I needed prior to getting in the lorry with big Robbo (who cannot sing very well). 
I loved my weeks training and I cannot wait to tell all my pals to train with team ETT. 
I conducted a driver assessment due to not having driven a lorry for ten years. Robbo took me out for two hours and looked after me ensuring that I was safe and ready for my new job on Monday morning. This is a family run business and they look after their customers, I will be back for my class 1 before the end of the year. 
Thank you Hayley and Robbo I appreciate your help and I will continue to fly the team ETT flag. 
More than just a driving company, they are passionate about their customers. 
Andrew Tiffen 
"I chose Essex Transport Training after speaking with some of my friends and family who have also picked this company to deliver their HGV/LGV driver training. 
A fun and friendly atmosphere were you will learn, but you will be expected to work hard if you are to pass first time. Robbo, Neil, Tony and Terry are all fantastic HGV/LGV driving instructors, but Hayley in the office is a complete star who will look after you from the start until the finish. Don't delay get booking today and experience the Essex Transport Training way." 
Ingrid Nice - Taxi driver Braintree 
"Our business have chosen Essex Transport Training to deliver our HGV/LGV driver training for over four generations. A professional company with fully qualified HGV/LGV driver training instructors, trusted by our family company since the 1980's. Similar to our company they are also family owned and run, therefore customer care is their Unique Selling Point. A first time pass and an excellent week was had during my driving course, thank you Hayley and Robbo for everything." 
Lino - GandG Gallo - Wine distributors 
I chose Essex Transport Training because two people at my work passed first time with them late last year (2018). I had a tough but action packed week learning to drive a HGV with Robbo - I also passed first time therefore cannot fault this company - they are the dogs boll***s. 
The only way is "Essex Transport Training" :-) 
Si Miller - Clacton 
I would very highly recommed Essex Transport Training, I have just started a class one job at Felixstowe docks on the containers. When I had my assessment drive the assessor aske me who I trained with, ETT I replied. The assessor said that he has had many a top quality driver from ETT and that the standards are always very high. I gave him as close to a perfect drive that he has ever seen. The interviewer also blew smoke up the companies bottom, you will be choosing a very professional outfit if you choose to train with team ETT - I had a great week out and about with Robbo on my course. No nonsense approach to HGV/LGV driving. Companies that have been around over 30 years are obviously doing something right!  
Train with the best.

Training with Essex Transport Training was wonderful, the instructors are all fully qualified and work very hard to ensure that you are ready for your test. I was prepared perfectly to pass my test first time and that is exactly what I did, 100% recommend team ETT for all of your HGV/LGV driver training requirements. 
Abi Dowding 
Having completed a HGV class C course with my best mate Scott, we both trained together with Robbo (Director) and we both passed first time. A real hard weeks work but some serious fun was had along the way. The reversing area is spot on and is theres so no one bothers you, the training and the lorries are all spot on and very clean and well maintained. This company could not have done anymore for me and Scott. 
We would recommend team ETT anyday before anyone else, train with the best. 
Adam Suckling 
An amazing week training with Essex Transport Training, I was gutted it had to end. I passed my category C with them first time. I was trained very well and I was confident that I could nail it on the first go. The training was progressive but well delivered and for that I am thankful. 
Top Company. 
Leigh Phillips - Suffolk Fire & Rescue 
"A top company, run by a top couple. I chose Essex Transport Training due to a lot of my family and friends choosing them. I have had a blast with this company, everyone who works for them are qualified and want what is best for the student/customer.  
I am gutted it is now all over, I will be back for my C+E in good time. 
Thank you team ETT, I loved every minute of the training. 
I even got a selfie with big Robbo :)" 
Mathew Farrell (HSE)
"I chose Essex Transport Training for my category C1 7.5 ton training to enable me to drive my horses in my own horsebox. The training was delivered excellently and my instructor knew his stuff. He was approachable and fun to train with, this all ensured that I was relaxed and ready to pass my test first time. I cannot speak highly enough of this HGV/LGV driver training company. 
As they say, train with the best. " 
Essex Transport Training were the company of choice for me, from the first minute my phone call was answered by Hayley who quickly put my mind at ease with respect to the entire process. She ensured that all of my questions were answered and she held my hand through the process making it seem really simple to me due to me being so busy with running my own business. Once I had conducted all of my theories etc I was met by Robbo up at the lorry park, he introduced me to the SCANIA (King of the road) and taught me how to drive her perfectly. A weeks driving training and we were ready to test at Ipswich, Robbo had us prepared fully and it was up to us to make the right decisions out on the road with our examiner.  
Thankfully the roads were kind to me and I passed with a couple of minors, I really was prepared fully, if you listen and work hard you will give yourself the chance to pass first time. 
Alex Aird - Business man Braintree  
Choose Team ETT because you will get value for money, excellent lorries and equipment. All of their instructors are fully qualified and will work you hard to ensure that you are prepared for your test. 
I drove to Colchester from Bath in order to train with the only company that I felt l could trust. I had to wait 8 weeks but it was worth it, remember if a HGV/LGV training company can fit you in on a course within 2 weeks, they are most likely not very good and that the wait shows you that the company are very professional and have a lot of customers. 
I will be back in touch for my C+E in due course.

"I would like to thank Essex Transport Training for getting me through my HGV Class one and providing a friendly professional service. His years of experience were evident over the four days training I received as he conveyed his knowledge over to me. Terry from day 1 guides, trains and gives you the confidence you need in order to reach the required standard come test day."
