Why choose Allan Miller Transport Training?

We are a South Australian-based Registered Training Organisation, providing a ’one stop shop’ for all of the training services a transport company might require for its operators. We have been operating as a company since 2003, and in that time have established a solid track record for delivering quality services to our customers.

Family owned and operated

Our training team is led by Peter Simmons, who has over 34 years experience in the transport industry, including 25 years experience in transport training.  Peter only employs trainers that also have extensive industry experience and share his passion for training and making a difference in the industry.

We aim to provide a great service for our customers, so that any training requirements can be arranged with just a simple phone call. We value personal relationships and aim to help drivers to get the licence and skills they need, and help the transport industry to develop a skilled and safe workforce.

We have worked in partnership with the transport industry for over 10 years, to meet their training needs with quality ‘job-standard’ training and flexible, tailored delivery. This means we provide our students with the skills that are needed to do the job rather than just a licence.

Quality assured training

  • We employ only industry-experienced trainers, with at least 5 years transport industry experience, to ensure credibility and quality of information presented. We invest substantially in the ongoing development and learning of our trainers.
  • We assign a dedicated trainer to your project, so they get to know your business/procedures. This means we can work with your operations staff to ensure training is scheduled to minimise disruptions, as well as tailor training units to company requirements.
  • We have project management and student database systems in place, including a dedicated Operations Manager responsible to oversee timely delivery of training programs.
  • Our training materials are developed and maintained in-house, rather than purchased ‘off the shelf’, so that we capture and continuously improve our training directly from feedback from industry.
  • We allocate a dedicated Customer Service Manager, responsible for ongoing monitoring of customer satisfaction and resolving any queries/issues that may arise.
  • To be authorised to display the Nationally Recognised Training logo (below), we comply with and are audited against the VET Quality Framework
