2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineDecember 11, 2018

Online driver training provider DT Driver Training has been acquired by TR Group to sit alongside its Master Drive Services brand, adding further options for both light and heavy vehicle training.

Neil Bretherton, general manager strategic development at TR Group, says the aim is to provide a broader service to its heavy vehicle clients as well as strengthening the company‘s focus on technology and learning.

“TR Group and Master Drive already provide practical and online driver training to a wide range of clients. DT Driver Training will help us more effectively serve clients who have multiple different vehicle types, as well as provide efficiencies in how we create and deliver learning options.”

DT Driver Training‘s e-learning platform serves more than 140,000 users a month. It is the largest provider of learner licence theory training and has an impressive roster of corporate clients from government and industry. The site already features courses from other driver training providers, something TR Group is keen to expand on.

“Our ultimate goal is to help reduce incidents on the road by working with our customers to help them operate their vehicles as safely, efficiently and compliantly as possible. We want to take this opportunity to bring best-of-breed training programmes not only from Master Drive but also other providers. We welcome enquiries from other training providers in related industries who would like to be part of ensuring that drivers of any vehicle can get top quality training, wherever they are in the country.”
