Springfield DTS has been teaching people to drive since 1962. Under current management since 1982
We have been involved with the panel of National Driver Improvement Scheme of instructors which meant liaising with local authority presenting courses to deliver practical training to further develop driving skills of those attending the courses. During the development of the National Driver Improvement Scheme we were associated with National Speed Awareness, presenting courses and delivering training.
From there, we expanded and became involved in more driving initiatives such as; Managing Occupational Road Risk, assessing company car drivers and Testing Minibus and Taxi drivers.
