We are ideal for:
1. Drivers that have recently started a job driving a van, and have little or no experience in driving such a vehicle.
2. Drivers that drive a van as part of their job, but have been having a few too many incidents.
3. Companies that wish to train a number of their van drivers, to help lower fleet insurance, demonstrate their Duty of Care, and reduce incident rates.
We can provide van driver training in both small and large vans up to 3.5 tonnes (that can be used on a normal, “B” car driving licence) we can also provide training for larger Category C and C1 commercial vehicles.
“We have seen a 68.5% reduction in damage to our vehicles amongst our team of staff across the UK and Northern Ireland since we have used Drivers Domain UK for our advanced driver training. As a charity that saves lives at sea, ongoing training is critical to ensuring the safety of our staff both on and off the water”
(Royal National Lifeboat Institution)
We have used Drivers Domain UK at our Partners4Health site in Chester. Both the level of service and training has been very good.
We use Drivers Domain UK for our on going van driver training at York Rail Station. They have really helped us educate the drivers about the importance of safer van driving.

Two Common Vans We Provide Training In (Our training takes place in your own van):
- Mercedes Sprinter – This is one of the most common vans we provide driver training in. The Mercedes Sprinter comes in a range of sizes and dimension. Our tutors have many years experience in delivering van driver training in such vehicles. Learn more about our bespoke Transit Driver Training.
- Ford Transit/Luton – Perhaps the most well known of all vans. The Ford Transit has been synonyms with “The White Van Man”. Our tutors have helped many “White Man Van” drivers become safer more courteous drivers.
We can provide van driver training in all vans, car-derived vans and LGV vehicles. With our van driver training we do focus more on maneuvers and mirror use, as this is essential when driving such a large vehicle, with limited rear vision.
- Forward planning and observation.
- Understanding and defusing road rage
- Rules of the road
- Van Maneuvers (Right and Left reverse + reversing)
- Advanced mirror use
- Cornering techniques
- Skid control techniques
- All weather driving
- Psychological elements of driving
- Vehicle handling with loads
- Space management and awareness
- Motorway, Town and Rural driving techniques
Following the course each driver will get a full driving report outlining what was covered, and their overall risk.
Don’t have a van? We don’t supply vans for training. However, if you would like a session and need a van, we would recommend hiring a van local to yourself, and training can then be arranged to start from the van hire depot. A number of customers who needed van training but did not have access to a van opted for this.
