“Proper vehicles, proper training.” Our strap-line says it all – “Changing People’s Lives”
"Passed my class 2 test this week thanks entirely to the excellent tuition from a fabulous team at data academy. Funny, self deprecating and very professional these people really put you at ease during a very tense period undergoing my first tests of any kind since passing car test at 17 (I am now 54!). Cannot recommend you highly enough. Five stars for everything. Thanks again."
"Just completed my Cat C training. Found all the staff really helpful. My trainer, Eddie, explained everything I needed to know to drive safely and professionally. His explanations were well explained and easy to follow and enabled me to pass both CPC and practical driving test. Would recommend Data Academy and will use them again when I move to the next stage (C+E)."
"Passed cat C & CE with data and I can honestly say it's the best learning environment you could ask for. Vast knowledge of not only the vehicles but the industry too! Extremely supportive and just a great company over all. Taking them biscuits won't help you pass, but they will definitely be happy to see you."
"The guys here are all fantastic! Incredibly helpful, understanding, patient and more importantly, "normal" (well, most of them!) Dorian went out of his way to get me booked in for my test ASAP. I passed my trailer test with them and from my experience, can highly recommend them!"
"These guys are amazing! Everyone at Data Academy is so welcoming and fun, they put me at ease straight away. I’m so glad I did my C1 training with them. My instructor Phil was great, I struggle with nerves but he helped me stay calm and didn’t let me worry about silly mistakes! I would highly recommend using Data Academy!"
"Data Academy was recommended to my via a friend. Right from the first conversation with Dorian, Racheal and the team I knew this would be the only company I would want to complete my 7.5 tonne training with. They supported all my learning differences and went over and above to meet and care for my needs. The communication throughout and the process from start to finish was outstanding. I was matched with the perfect instructor for 2 days, Nick, his teaching style was nurturing and he understood my differences and helped me to focus and believe in myself. I can at times let my emotions get the better of me but Nick and the team helped raise my confidence levels and I was able to pass first time. I will always be grateful to Data Academy for their love and support and if you are thinking of taking your HGV test then look no further Data Academy by far outshine their competitors.
"Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the team at Data, with a special thanks to Eddie, who taught me how to drive a CE from car, ironed out my faults and improved my driving up to professional standards. And also calmed my nerves just before my test. :-) I got it in the bag with two minor faults, one for a pedestrian light (which I observed should change shortly but I proceeded and braked a bit excessive) and taking too long to move when a car was up the road, on the Forest Road turn. Edit: I just wanted to add the time frame, on the 25th of July I passed my theory, hazard perception & CPC 2. The 24th of August I'm a qualified HGV driver. If you don't want to mess around waiting long periods, go speak to Data. :-) Of course the time of year will factor into this."
"Absolutely amazing professional team!
I would like say big thank you for everyone in Data Academy.
You are absolutely super stars!!!
Everything nice and clear from beginning to the end. No hidden costs. Nice and easy. Like my instructor say: “Nice and steady, nice and gently”
Phil still missing your “good” DATA ACADEMY dreams come true with you guys! Just in 7 days for an artic! I pass month ago and now im on the road from 3 weeks. One More Time BIG THANK YOU!!! Dreams come true!"
"Friendly and professional, the team are always available to answer any questions and guide you through the stages required to get your license. Excellent practical training with great explanation enabling me to pass my HGV Cat C test.
Big thank you to Eddie for your patience and instruction!
Thank you Dorian and all the team."
"I found this company after being given a personal recommendation and despite them being over an hour drive away from me I went to visit them. So glad I did, from my very first assessment drive through to passing my C+E I found them all to be professional, knowledgeable and above all great fun. As a motorcycle instructor for the past 26 years I thought I knew a bit about training (nothing about driving trucks); however, I am pleased to say I also learnt a lot about teaching styles and methods. Whatever instructor I had, who all had their different styles, they pretty quickly cottoned on to my learning style and made sure that they were getting the best out of me. It was a bit strange being the student after all these years, but my experiences go to show that every day is a school day. I will certainly take away not just my new licence but also some useful training tips and techniques that I can utilise. Oh and I should also mention the office staff who excellently catered to my every need, whether that be rearranging dates, assisting with my paperwork, sorting my theory test or even just a friendly chat. Thanks to all at Data Academy Ltd!"
