In 1993, Essential Driver Training was opened in a tiny two room craft centre in the north of Shrewsbury. Twelve months later we expanded in motorcycles and moved to larger premises.
Essential Driver Training, or EDT for short was a name though which had little relevance to our bike company and Fast -Trak Rider was born.
EDT though, having everything to do with transport and legal compliance continued to thrive and in about 2000 the motorbikes and everything else took up joint residence in our current purpose built premises.
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 sit in sidecars in the BSB and associates who skid 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.
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.
