Unit 14 Yeomanry Road
In 1993, Essential Driver Training and its motorcycle division Fast Trak was opened in a tiny two room craft centre in the north of Shrewsbury. Twenty four years later we are still going from strength to strength.
Our core business in earnings capability is trucks and haulage but our hearts are in bikes.
Every single member of our staff are enthusiastic bikers and most are qualified instructors. We train on bikes, we tour on bikes and we race bikes. We have staff who sit in sidecars in the BSB and associates who slide around speedway tracks. If you do something on a bike that we don't, it's probably illegal and you should be sent to prison.
Two of the current local DVSA Examiners were trained at and worked for Fast Trak before they moved on to their current profession. Add to that the fact that we are by far the longest standing training company in the County, and the first in the whole of the UK to have delegated powers to train and approve Advanced Motorcycle Instructors. Excellent facts on their own but there is more - a lot more.
If you can read the severity of a bend, if you understand when you should lead with the back brake, if you understand counter-steering, if you are always in the safest position travelling at the correct speed with the right gear engaged, if you never seem to need to brake hard, if you are one of those people who can genuinely blame everyone else for the near miss, then well done, you don't need any help. Then again if you think you have stopped learning, you probably believe in Father Christmas.
Our subsidiary Maverick Motorcycle Tours is the place to turn your dreams into reality. Touring on motorbikes can be such a fantastic experience, but if you are on your own or don't know where you are going it can be a little intimidating to say the least.
Some of us at Fast Trak have been riding motorcycles for nigh on 50 years and teaching others to ride them for half that time. During our quarter century of training bike communications have been at times patchy and at worst, quite hopeless. In our business we have spent - and wasted many hundreds of pounds on equipment to enable us to do our job and to generally enjoy the rding experience.
