Robin Ogle
My thanks to everyone at Viamaster - but particularly John and Lizzi - who have been thoroughly professional and extremely supportive, enabling me to obtain my HGV licence. I would recommend this company to anyone who is interested in starting or furthering a career in logistics.
Steven Alban
10 Day Novice Instructor Training. I'm going to start with a massive thanks to Steve and his team for making myself and the other trainees so welcome. I personally was not looking forward to this course, having done this course over 10 years ago, the thought of lesson plans and power point presentation gave me sleepness nights. But from day 1 my thinking started to change. Steve's training techniques are second to none. In my opinion you will struggle to find a better instructor out there. Steve and his team built the confidence up on all of his trainees over the 10 days. And come the end of the course we all failed ? just kidding, it was a pass all round. The legends 100% record continues. Thank you to all at viamaster and best wishes to you all.

Did my training at castleford viamaster, with Phil as my trainer, immediately there was no pressure, I could chill out and have a laugh. However the high standard and completeness of the training was reassuring, so I always felt confident of passing with my trainer.
Mark Mitchell

Dear to who is/are interested becoming a wearhouse driver/Lorry driver,I spent a week learning and and training in Class One HGV in December 2022 and another week doing forklift in February 2023. I passed both of the courses in a smooth and straight way.Viamaster did a perfect job and helped me to grain my licences and took good responsibility. My coach Richard (for Class One HGV) and Karl (for Forklift) are always calm whenever they are answering my questions and listen to me. Even with my deafness with implants.To me. Viamaster did brillant equal to 10/10. They do look after their customers and plans organiser. The environment of Viamaster is really the top of the class that everyone should go and learn to train any warehouse's and large size's vehicles in there. So clean in the area and plenty of good cups of hot chocolates.That's not all, a wonderful Lizzy who helped me with my bookings through emails and phone calls to make everything in sense of Viamaster's company. Once I passed, the full neat certificates and licence comes into my email and post in a good smooth time within three days.Really please about Viamaster. They are ace.With my regards, Spencer Faithfull
