Here you can read what our clients are saying about our driver training courses and our driving instructors.

HGV Driver

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Before obtaining my licence I was working for a tool hire company as a delivery driver, but could only drive their Transit van with a trailer. I had been looking for a job closer to home with better opportunities and applied to KSS Hire, knowing I might be able to train to become an LGV driver. One of the drivers had heard about the reputation of RSM, so the company made contact and I was soon on the road to becoming a qualified LGV driver. The team were very helpful in organising my training and booking my tests. Having passed my test, the licence has made a big difference to my life –  as it has given me both a better income and lifestyle with more opportunities in what is a lifelong career.”

Trained HGV Driver at Maritime

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Having always been fascinated with trucks, I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a driver. I found RSM online and their website was informative with great reviews. When I contacted them they advised me of everything I needed to do to get my licence. The team were very professional, helpful and keen to get me trained-up.

Thanks to RSM and passing my HGV Class 1 licence I have become a full time driver with Maritime Tilbury hauling containers. I find it really enjoyable as no two jobs are the same, you get to enjoy travelling the country for free, and the pay is good too. I have also got to know many other drivers from different backgrounds and they have been really friendly and helpful with anything I have needed as a new driver.”

Pass HGV Class 2 _ Dan Reed

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Before obtaining my HGV licence I used to install hanging flower boxes for businesses. I decided I wanted a change, – a career in driving, a better job, better money and better hours – which I now have! Within a couple of days of passing my HGV Class 2,  I started driving skip lorries for a Basildon based company, and I love it. It has made me more confident as a person and I would encourage anyone to make the change if they are thinking about it! So many people who I spoke to when thinking about doing my licence had either used RSM or heard such great things about them. I’m glad I trained with them as now I can recommend their services first hand.

HGV driver training for women

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Thank you to everyone at RSM for their professionalism and thorough training! I took my HGV Class 2 and had Kevin and Woody for my lessons. They both were amazing! Their attitude and commitment to the course were second to none and they made every effort to make sure I was confident while I was driving and ready for my test. Many thanks to the girls in the office for making the process of booking the course very easy and straightforward. The girls were also very helpful with any questions I had before taking the course.

The rest of the team at RSM are very friendly and I really couldn’t fault this company!!”

– Charlotte Wilson


I passed my test with RSM today and must say it has been a shed load of fun this week training for the big day !
My instructor Russ couldn’t be faulted and made the whole experience enjoyable ! – Thanks a lot mate!”

– Jay Luxton


I booked a crash course for a C1 licence for my paramedic training and passed my licence today! 

I couldn’t thank my instructor Maggie and all of the staff at RSM enough, they’re so very kind and welcoming, especially as I was very nervous! All the training I have received has prepared me to pass my test today with a high level of competence, confidence and skill!

Thank you!”

– Tam Rokita, Paramedic


Fantastic company! Great staff! Instructor was awesome! Only had 16 hours with him and I passed first time.

Thank you so much! Highly recommended!!

– Declan Leeks


Just passed my C1 thanks to this brilliant company and my amazing instructor Kev. The training was very thorough and all the staff at the training center made me feel very welcome and relaxed. I have already recommended this company to many friends looking to complete the same course.

Thank you again!”

– Shannon Thurstan


Thank you to all staff at RSM commercial driver training, in particular my instructor for the week Geoff. It has been a great experience doing this driving course. I also felt it helped with bad habits that I have gathered over the years! Everyone has been friendly yet professional and extremely helpful, the brand new training vehicle is lovely to drive and will benefit ambulance staff members for many courses to come.”

– Jeremy Jennings, East Anglia Ambulance Service


My Trainer Treena was superb, she was very knowledgeable taking me on plenty of different routes and provided all the relevant information that I needed to know to pass my test (first time) Everyone in the office was friendly and approachable and nothing was too much trouble..

I have been able to drive sports teams and assist other colleagues in getting to fixtures helping to save the school money on transport costs”.

– Martin Stevenson, Teacher


Had my Class 1 and Class 2 with Tony; excellent trainer – passed both 1st time with 1 minor. Wouldn’t recommend anyone else great team down at RSM !

Now working for Unitruc – got the job 2 working days after passing my Class 1 and have been working with them ever since. Before I was a fabricator and was tired of working in a factory –  now loving my job”

– JJ Appleton, Essex


I was unsure if (because of being a women) I would be accepted in what has mainly (until recently) been seen as a predominantly male industry. RSM gave me first rate training, which gave me confidence behind the wheel and in my own ability as a driver.

It has worked out well –  I am glad I made the change. I really enjoy being behind the wheel. The JKS Group is a great company to work for.”

– Sarah, 29, Canvey Island, Essex


I couldn’t be happier, spent the week with Geoff training and passed 1st time. – Great school, lovely people, top training.

Thanks Geoff and RSM.”

HGV driver training for women


I felt so comfortable and relaxed as the instructors were so friendly. I passed my class 2 and am now waiting to do my class 1 and I wont go anywhere else. I really bonded with the instructors and feel like i have friends for life. My instructor was Tony and what a legend, really good at his job and really honestly wants what is best for the learner. I can honestly say they adapt to how YOU learn best – One on one so I had all there dedicated time.

Highly recommended. 5 stars all round. Thanks guys!!!!

A few members of my family are lorry drivers and I wanted to better myself and further my career. Training at RSM I felt at ease from the beginning of the course. Very friendly environment to learn in, great vehicles and fantastic teaching methods. I passed first time and am very satisfied. I will now be going to work full time driving dust carts.

Pass the PCV test


Passed my PCV first Time!

My instructor was absolutely brilliant and all the staff were very good and friendly. Thanks guys

– Callum Taylor, Essex


As a small tree service provider efficiency is key, which is why this test is vital to providing an efficient service. Our team are all under 33 years old which means we are all post 1997 drivers, this means unlike those lucky pre 1997 drivers we now need another test, which is the b+e entitlement. We recommend RSM Driver Training, should you require passing the b+e trailer test in Essex – Thanks to Treena at RSM Training Basildon for helping me pass.

– Terry Holland, T.H Tree Services, Essex

HGV driver training reviews


I was looking for a change in direction at work and after speaking to a friend decided that HGV driving would be the direction to take. I was recommended to go to RSM by a friend and I found the staff professional and helpful. I was lucky enough to pass my HGV 2 then 1 first time, then through another friend was taken on by a small company in Tilbury, I’ve been with the same company for nearly two years now and love it. It’s a steep learning curve when you start, but well worth it, I now drive a Volvo FH16 which I’ve been driving since new and deliver containers to as far as Bristol to Birmingham. So, if you want a job that has security, well paid and you are left on your own , contact RSM and pass your test !

RSM Commercial Driver Training Staff


Teach u what u need to know, and have a laugh along the way, amazing people that get the job done, couldn’t have passed without them, thanks guys xx

– Shareen Green


I undertook my C1 Driver Training last week and passed my test on Friday. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my instructor Mick as he is the sole reason I passed my test. I could not have asked for a better instructor and I believe Mick’s instruction is the reason I felt confident so early on. He made me feel so at ease and really pushed me to do the best I could.

I owe a big thank you to Mick and the RSM team for making me feel so welcome and getting me over my last hurdle before I become a student paramedic.

Best wishes for the future and thank you again.

Kind Regards,

– Dominique White


I would like to thank everyone at RSM. I had a great 4 days training. A big thanks to Treena. I highly recommend RSM to anyone thinking of any driver training. Class 1 next so could be seeing you soon.


– Mark Brown


“Hello everyone,
I would like to thank you all, especially Treena, for your help and involvement in my successful PCV training. It has long been a wish of mine to drive something bigger than a car and, latterly, to provide cover for our Cricket Team coach driver when we play matches away from home which involve a stay away of more than a week.
Treena stayed positive for me after my second test failure and was determined to get her oldest student through the test, come what may!
So, thank you all for your help – I will think of you if approached for a recommendation.”

– Tony Choat, 77, Essex

I did the course for a change of career. I found Treena’s style of teaching easy to understand and informative. The bus is simple but effective and very good to learn with.

Pass the HGV Test

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ From the age of when I can remember as a child; I wanted to become a lorry driver. When I was 15 I worked for my uncle who owns several lorries. My uncle’s employees would take me out in the 20 tonne tippers. I remember thinking one day I want to drive lorries.

When I left school I left with no GCSE’s at all. People just thought that I could not be bothered to learn; in 2004 I was diagnosed with dyslexic and learning difficulties. Most people didn’t have the time of day for me, as I am slow in what I do and it takes me a long time to understand things. 

Later on in life I was then diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD and Mild chronic dysthymia. In the back of my head I was thinking that I would never be able to get my driving licence. I then Met my wife and herself and her family got me on the straight and narrow and helped me get my driving licence in 2008 I passed my test and then a few years later I started to study my HGV theory. Now I have passed my test in 2015.

As I passed my HGV Class 2 I would like to thank Tony & Katrina at RSM who are instructors that can support and understand people with learning disabilities to provide the appropriate training.

On my first day of training I arrived, and to be honest I was a little nervous pulling into the lorry park whilst parking in the car park, thinking about how I would get on and how my day will turn out. RSM made me feel welcome and after a while I felt comfortable to be myself. I would definitely recommend this company for people who have learning disabilities. If you have learning disabilities and you think you could never be a lorry driver then THINK AGAIN! Just think positive towards yourself and you will be able to achieve what ever your ambitions are in life. If you have the ability to drive a lorry and you want to drive a lorry then DO IT and don’t give up.

Best of luck for everyone for your future.
