Over 45 years and still going strong
Wallace School of Transport is a family run business, established in 1963 in Nottingham by the late Russell Wallace (on the 2nd row, 3rd from the left), who served in the Armed Forces Motor Corps.
Building on this wealth of knowledge and experience of driver training, he laid the foundations of the school, and in 1969 was one of the first to attend the then newly formed Road Transport Industry Training Board to become an approved instructor and school.
The HGV driving test was launched in 1969. We were one of the first schools in the country to offer lorry driver training.
The growth of the school meant that Russell needed help with bookings and administration and in 1970 he asked Dorothy, his wife, to join him. Together they ran the school until the early 80's.
