Who are we?
Company car drivers and van drivers are crucial elements in business. Tiered Training provide a CPD accredited Driver Development Training programme consisting of four modules which have been designed to improve the knowledge and skills of company fleet drivers.
Internal Driver Assessor
This five-day Internal Driver Assessor training is divided into two sections and designed for any company that employs drivers either at one site, or spread over the UK. The objective of the course is three-fold:
We at Tiered Training provide practical on-road driver assessments and training, as we believe a driver needs to drive the vehicle they drive for work during the assessment, not sitting in front of a computer screen guessing the answers to multi choice questions.
Taxi Drivers are required to drive at an advanced standard on their Taxi Driver Test – much higher than the “L” Test.
We often find drivers’ who take the Taxi Driver Test, will generally fail their first attempt because their own driving attitude, behaviour, knowledge and skills are not at the standard required by the Local Authority, thus wasting their money and time.
Tiered Training deliver Taxi Driver training to help drivers attain the required and higher standard of driving, before they sit their Taxi Driver Test.
All of our Advanced Driver trainers are highly experienced Department for Transport Approved Driving Instructors. They are professionally qualified and are all regulated by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
They are also Diamond Advanced Motorists, Advanced Driver Examiners and Trainers.
They are skilled at developing drivers across the spectrum, with particular focus on individual development needs.
Tiered Training can prepare you to successfully pass either of the following two advanced tests.

real people – real progress
At Citidogs we are focused on ensuring we have policies and procedures in place to deliver a high degree of professional safety standards for both our staff, the 500 clients who trust us to look after their much loved dogs and the general public.
The challenge I had was the company fleet had grown quickly to 8 large vans with 12 drivers, and it became apparent to me that this area of the business needed to be audited for safety and security for both vehicles and manpower. In addition there was apparent carelessness of vehicle handing and management resulting in tens of thousands of pounds annually in repairs and replacement.
Not knowing where to start, the task felt daunting! I found Tiered Training through a hopeful search on Google and after the very first email interaction with Carey I knew straight away that Tiered Training was the company I could trust to help me achieve the Citidogs goals.
After discussing our needs, an agreed personalised programme was put in place to assess all current drivers, a policy to ensure continued vehicle safety and management, and even more importantly a plan on how to maintain the agreed programme into the future.
We now have a fully trained Internal Assessment Team to continue the programme. The personalised training and advice given by Howard in the classroom and on the road was of an exceptionally high standard and I feel confident that we have met and continue to meet what is required of the company by all legal and professional standards bodies, not something I could have achieved alone. Not only are our current staff assessed regularly, but also recruiting now has conditions to ensure we are recruiting first time, right time.
I do not believe any company who employs a number of vehicles with drivers can afford not to take investment in this area of their business seriously for the protection of their staff, clients and themselves against the unknown and often unpredicted.
I do believe that if any company needs the right advice, the right programme and a professionally high standard of delivery then Tiered Training are absolutely the right team to get you there.
Stelrad, South Yorkshire sent us this compliment:
“I have worked with Tiered Training for two years and they are a pleasure to work with as they are extremely reliable, well organised and professional in everything they do.
They are always responsive to ad hoc requests and their approach is at all times courteous and friendly.
Howard has trained fifteen of our new Brand Specialists in van driving and he demonstrates such passion for the training and his knowledge is second to none.
I would confidently recommend their services to any company.”
Lisa Chambers, HR Manager, Stelrad UK Ltd
FareShare, London, a National Charity sent us this compliment.
