An absolutely fantastic training company. The course outline is clear and very easy for someone completely new to the haulage industry. All the admin and miscellaneous stuff is sorted for you, allowing you the time to concentrate on the learning. Practical training is second to none. With the instructors being friendly, knowledgeable and skilled in delivery of the learning points. Having completed the car to C+E successfully I would recommend this company to both friends and family. To top it all the course costs are very competitive. Thanks for a great 8 days training Neil, Rob and team

Brilliant from day 1 to my final day. Neil was my instructor and although a hard task master, he was very laid back with the way he criticized my driving and had a great attitude which made the difference. Although I consider myself a good driver and handled the 40ft Volvo with relative ease having driven long vans with 8m caravans before it soon became apparent there is a right & a wrong way of driving these trucks.... I was approaching roundabouts far to fast and was not using the other vehicles to my advantage to block other potential hazards.. If I could give a couple of words of advice it would be 1 ) slow into junctions 2 ) use all the space ahead 3) plan ahead.. but the biggest is use Essex Transport Training... There's a reason why they have such a good pass rate and that's because they are good at what they do and have the patience to do it.. A++ WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND ! Thanks to Neil, Mark, Robbo, Hayley & her father... Regards Lee F

Firstly I would like to say a BIG BIG “THANK YOU “ to Robbo who I had my first contact with and guided me and explained every step in an extremely understanding stress free way from start to finish and any anxiety I had soon went away very quickly, Thank you again mate.
Secondly , Thank you Mark … 👍 Robbo introduced me to Mark who was my instructor and shortly after that we were out on the road .. Great guy, Explaining and demonstrating in a very easily understandable way, What can I say … started lessons on Monday morning and passed my class 1 Friday morning done and dusted and PASSED WITH ZERO FAULTS !! … Thanks again Mark.
I would like to add that I did not know these Guys or knew of the company so this is an honest 100% REVIEW, They are in a great location with plenty of parking , I cannot understand why they haven’t got a long waiting list ? Maybe advertising as I know that’s very expensive, So honestly if you are thinking of doing your car to class 1 or class 2 to class 1 which was what I did you could not in my opinion find a better place than this to do it , I’m sure they do the CPC courses etc as well, give them a call it will be worth it.

I've just passed my class 1 practical test today. I can't thank ETT team for their professional approach to training me. My instructor Neil was 1st class with his advice and instruction into every little detail of my driving and help me gain confidence to drive and pass. Right from day 1 Robbo was there every morning as well encouraging everyone to give there best. If you are thinking of doing HGV training then look no further than these guys they WILL get you through.
Also big shout out to Hayley for getting all my tests booked in and kept me up to date with everything and asked all my questions.

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.

"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."

"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."
