Road Skills was launched in 1991 by managing director David Somers who saw that many operators were not getting the support and training they needed to raise standards and stay compliant. We deliver a broad range of services, working with operators of all sizes across the UK and into Europe and we have released some of our driving training material online.

David managed his own haulage fleet for many years following an Army career that saw him leading some ‘tough’ characters as a young Second Lieutenant after he had graduated from the Royal Military Academy.

David is passionate about harnessing people’s potential to ‘do the best they can’ and he applies this approach and his commercial and military experience to the benefit of UK businesses.
