I would like to introduce myself and explain to you how North West Training Solutions Ltd (NWTS) was born. My name is Marc Skinner I am the owner of the company, originally from the North East but now live in Cumbria. I have been married to Kelly since 2002 and have 2 children Ryan 16 and Emily 10, and I am a great believer that family are the life blood of any business.


I have been directly involved in the transport sector both as a Coach driver and an LGV driver since leaving the Royal Navy in 1996, I have travelled the length and breadth of Eastern and Western Europe and  Scandinavia and have gained a wealth and varied amount of experience during this time.


I moved into driver training in early 2012 qualifying as an LGV and PSV assessor, a CPC national licence certificate and lately as a qualified instructor for PSV and LGV, covering licence acquisition for both classes of vehicle. I returned to driving after 5 years before having spells as a driver trainer in Bahrain and Singapore. I was employed by NBC News to work as a driver at the Winter Olympics 2018, then as a defensive driver for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London in April 2018 working with the Diplomatic and Royal Protection teams.

I have worked as a campaigner in road safety which I am very passionate about, as drivers we are heavily regulated and safety must be paramount in everything we do. With this in mind I set up NWTS Ltd with the sole purpose of offering cost effective professional training for the LGV and PSV sector, my prices remain low especially for Drivers CPC with no increases as deadline days approach.


My speciality is Defensive Driving with the aim to maximise fuel economy and make driving less stressful for the professional driver.
