Client testimonials What our CLIENTS think


    Very impressed with training and facilities

  • I’m going to drive away with my HR and I’m so happy. Thanks to all of you at Major – Love you all! Ashley is the best trainer and is good at his job – thanks Ash you’re the best!


    The facilities were clean and comfortable. The training team were very easy to get along with, very friendly and professional – I will recommend MAJOR!!!

  • The best parts of the course: ‘was to walk in to a most welcome group of employee’s from Major which made my lessons much easier on the days.’ Worst parts of course: ‘none‘


    Nice little note from one of our staff on your company’s training. See below, thought you might like to see!

    Just a quick note to say Thank-you for organising my Truck License , I have completed all the required training and have passed the driving exam. Major Training were very professional in all dealings I experienced with them. Dion has started his training today and I expect him to pass with flying colours.

  • Hi all at Major,

    Just wanted to say thanks for your help and the course I completed with you guys RIIMP0311A helped me gain employment with Xstrata Zinc in Mt Isa at the Black Star Open Pit. I’m now a level 5 Operator on CAT 789’s and your course got me fast tracked as an RPL and driving solo within a week so thanks again to your company and instructors for a great job.



    Dear Sir,

    I am writing this letter to say thank you to all of your staff that made me feel welcome when I came to your premises to do my lessons in your trucks.

    I felt at ease from the beginning and all your staff from reception to trainers made me feel as if I was the only one there.

    I achieved my HR licence owing to their attention to detail and persistence in their training.

    Please pass on my thanks.

    Yours sincerely

  • would like to express my thanks and congratulations, to Major for helping me acquire my licence upgrade to MC. I found the staff helpful, courteous and understanding of my needs. I would also like to extend my gratitude to my two most capable instructors, Neville and Kevin. I found there instruction clear and concise and their patience and level communication skills outstanding.

    Thank you for this opportunity. I will refer Major to anyone who requires this type of training without hesitation.

    warm regards,

    Bret Youngs

    I would just like to thank you and your staff for your help during my recent refresher training at Major Training at Dinmore.
    I would also like to give a special thanks to Ashley, my driving instructor, through his patience and understanding, made me feel very comfortable during my lessons.
    I found his knowledge of the heavy transport industry invaluable and his approach to training very professional.
    Once again, thank you again to you and your staff. Kind regards

  • The location was handy, the office girl Chloe was very pleasant and helpful. This doesn’t happen very often with companies anymore.

    Allen was very reassuring and had confidence in me when I said I had not driven a large vehicle for a very long time.

    John showed me good techniques to use whilst driving and also very helpful and courteous. He was very patient with me.

    Adam had different techniques to John, and this was great because it gave me the opportunity to use what I felt was best for me. He was also very patient with me, even when I had my emotional moment.

    Brice kept me up to date and called if he was running a little late. He drew me up a training plan for the Certificate 3 in Driving Operations. He interviewed me to ascertain what could be used in RPL and provided me with assessments for the rest.

    The entire process was streamlined and pleasant. They were all non judgmental and very supportive.
