  • Head of Safety, Standards & Compliance, ReadyBus Ltd
    Danny Betts

    As per our ongoing training for all our drivers, it’s extremely important that our staff are fully up to date with the latest rules and regulations to ensure they and our customers are safe while traveling on our vehicles. One of the most important checks to ensure the safety of everyone is the walk-around check completed by the driver prior to taking our vehicles out on the road. This course completed by Ridgeway Training gives our drivers the refresher training they require to ensure they check that our vehicles are safe and compliant before going out on the public road.

  • Great Instructor!
    Steven Carter | KN Network Services

    Great course, very clear and simple to understand. Great Instructor!

  • Great job from start to finish
    Nick Pearce | K2 Transport

    Chris did a great job from start to finish. I found the start heavy going, but due to the trainer, I came through it!

  • The care and attention students receive is exemplary
    Roger Coates | Pheonix Coaches

    Ridgeway Training and Chris Shelford are highly recommended. The course is well organised, Chris takes heed of his students and will go the extra mile for them. He listens to their needs and as a result of this has introduced a further day for exam technique. This together with the revision day gives students more confidence, particularly if they haven't been in an exam environment for a number of years. Chris will also offer one to one tuition if it is felt to be necessary. The care and attention students receive is exemplary

  • Every member of my staff wanted to pass on their thanks
    Jim Bletchley, Transport Manager | Purple Parking Limited

    I just wanted to send my thanks for the training you have provided us over last 2 weeks. Every member of my staff wanted to pass on their thanks for an excellent presentation and with someone with so much knowledge who imparted that knowledge so very well. I would like to express my thanks as everything went so well and smoothly.

  • I would not hesitate in recommending Ridgeway Training for all training needs.
    Andrew Bell | Bells Buses

    I attended the International Passenger Transport CPC course in February / March 2016. From the initial course booking, it was apparent that it would be well organised. Chris welcomed us to well-equipped classrooms and comfortable facilities. The course material was well presented, easy to use and Chris was very experienced in delivering the course effectively to a time schedule. The overall learning experience was excellent, enjoyable and I would not hesitate in recommending Ridgeway Training for all training needs.
