Steven Shiels

I am the Business Manager at Central West Driver Training. I have been involved in the heavy vehicle industry all my life. I grew up with my dad being the local carrier in a small farming community and learnt to drive a truck before I could drive a car.

I am a qualified heavy vehicle mechanic. I also spent 7 years as a workshop foreman and driving interstate tourist coaches. This involved overnight express, camping safaris and guided tours. I have been involved in the heavy vehicle training and assessing industry since 1992. My hobbies are competing in motorsport - I race a Camaro Sports Sedan - and I like fishing (when time permits).

I am very passionate about what I do. I always seek to get the best out of clients, so as they can go to an employer and show that they really do understand trucks and they can operate a road ranger gearbox. I believe that at Central West Driver Training, we are the best at teaching the necessary skills to operate any heavy vehicle. We are not the cheapest or the fastest but we are the best.

I have been driving trucks for over 30 years, working in the transport and construction industry.

I worked in Sydney as a Trainer & Assessor before moving to Bathurst to to work with Central West Driver Training, to deliver the best possible heavy vehicle training and help people achieve their goals.

I have been involved in various roles in transport logistics and mining over a 28-year period. The majority of this time was in the forest industries with a 10-year stint in express freight in Sydney.

Training and assessing in trucks is a passion of mine. I'm committed to safety and learning, and will try to make everyday a new and enjoyable experience for my students and myself.

Since 1999 I have been training learner drivers to drive both cars and trucks.

I get great satisfaction from passing on my driving knowledge and experience to learner drivers as they progress from learners to competent drivers ready to take their place on our roads.


Craig Wright

I have been in the Transport and Logistics industry for over 27 years.

I have been an interstate/linehaul driver, worked in operational roles and then into contract management for several major blue chip clients.

In 2005 I completed my first Training and Assessment certificate; since then I have been completing work place training and assessment and delivering various skill sets. In 2016 I joined the team at Central West Driver Training and commenced heavy vehicle driver training.
