Allan Murphy

Allan Murphy

Allan has been involved in driver training for over 20 years. This is at many levels. He has in-depth and specialist experience and knowledge in:

Material Handling

Crash Investigation

Truck and Trailer training and driving

Fuel Management

Allan started out with a small training establishment in Huntly in 1995. This rapidly grew to become one of the countries leading driver training companies and at the time he sold it, had 8 branches, many staff and a large corporate base of transport companies using the services.

From this time, Allan’s skills and knowledge in the transport industry have seen him develop many skills to help transport companies grow and prosper. These are based on how to blend education into the industry. The real-world training style and course development skills he has used have not only seen drivers improve but reduced running costs for companies while they meet all the compliance levels required to do one of the most heavily compliant industries in New Zealand.

Being able to develop training material from scratch that is based on the company is a real saving, that has the staff showing results, understanding and wanting to comply with the rules.

While working since the sale of the Private Training Establishment he set up in Huntly, Allan has decided to work with James and set up the venture in Waharoa, as the industry has shown the need for the skill set, we both have. The road toll, delays in freight, recruitment issues and fuel costs are all now far more than what most in house driver trainers can deal with.

When adding to this the ongoing developments in technology are something most driver trainers have a poor understanding of and the continued self-development of attending, courses, seminars and dealing with manufactures has us with a resource that is frequently unmatched.
