You’re in good company.
Here’s what some of our past drivers had to say about us


I spent a lot of time researching CPC training providers around the North East. I contacted ECO Drive as I was unsure what I needed. After speaking with John, I booked myself on a 5 day course and completed the course in a week. Great location, relaxed setting. I returned to the trucking industry feeling confident in understanding the new rules and regulations since I was last on the road. Definitely would recommend to anyone for their CPC training.


I’m pleased I used Ecodrive CPC Training for my HGV / LGV & PSV at Parklands Golf Club, Gosforth Park with safe car parking. (Its just opposite Newcastle racecourse). The DCPC courses were surprisingly bearable, the trainer was informative and good humoured. Tasty bacon or sausage sandwich for breakfast. Sandwiches and fries for lunch and soft drinks for afternoon break (all with tea & coffee). Recommended 5 stars.
