About Us


1st Link Training Centre has been providing vehicle training since 1981. Originally established in West Yorkshire we started by teaching basic car tuition. As we started to grow we expanded into Leicester in the early 90’s and along with this we also expanded our training platforms to cater to HGV’s, Buses, Trailer etc.

We now cover most of the midlands area such as Derby, Nottingham, Birmingham, Coventry to name but a few. We have a friendly attitude and a positive outlook for our students so we can instil them with the confidence needed to reach their driving goals!

At 1st Link we have instructors who can speak a variety of languages such as Punjabi, Hindi etc. We have taught students from across the country, as well as a number of students who have come and gone from outside of the UK.
