Nothing but bikes, bikes and bikes...

In 1993, Essential Driver Training and its motorcycle division Fast Trak was opened in a tiny two room craft centre in the north of Shrewsbury. Twenty four years later we are still going from strength to strength.

Our core business in earnings capability is trucks and haulage but our hearts are in bikes. 

Every single member of our staff are enthusiastic bikers and most are qualified instructors. We train on bikes, we tour on bikes and we race bikes. We have staff who slide around speedway tracks. If you do something on a bike that we don't, it's probably illegal and you should be sent to prison.

If you want to learn to ride, well, here we are. Without doubt the longest serving bike trainers in the county. The first in the UK to have powers delegated by the DVSA to certify advanced bike instructors and, as far as we know the only people who can teach you to ride, teach you to instruct, take you round Oulton Park, the Nurburgring and the Grand Canyon.

And now we are expanding and as a result are having to move. We will of course still be based in Shrewsbury but our needs are changing. We no longer need shop premises but we need more training land, and, probably more importantly, we are opening a touring centre in France. It won't happen overnight because as we all know moving is more stressful than having a teenage daughter. We have two centres lined up in Brittany and we have our eyes on a more suitable place in Shrewsbury.  Our touring guides are already in situ.

Whilst all this is going on, our road transport division is also growing with customers now in Poland as well as all around the UK and Ireland. 

Please search our site for what you would really like to do on a bike and if it can be done, we can probably do it. 

And if you are a biker with no mates, why not just pop in for a coffee and a chat. Some of our staff will be just like you.
