Involvement in the Heavy Vehicle Industry
In 1960 I began my involvement in the industry as a driving instructor training clients for car licences with Hurstville Driving School.

In 1961, we expanded the business as I purchased my first heavy vehicle and began truck and semi training.

In 1966, I established Snell's Driving School and have been operating independently as a car, truck, bus and semi training centre ever since. However, we ceased commercial car training in 1973 in order to concentrate solely on the heavy vehicle industry.

Since 1966, Snell's has formed arrangements with other heavy vehicle companies such as AA Employment and Plant Training School to facilitate the training of the full range of heavy vehicles and plant equipment.

In more recent years, I have become involved in groups that represent the interests of the Heavy Vehicle Industry. I am currently a member of the Australian Driver Trainers Association (ADTA) and Vice President of the Independent Drivers Instructors Guild (IDIG). I have undertaken a firm commitment to the introduction of Competency Based Training and Assessment by the RTA. From 1994 to the present, I have been a member of the Reference Group for the development of the Heavy Vehicle Licence Assessment system. This involvement has included developing courses and trialling Competency Based Training with my own clients, requiring both myself and the applicant to submit reports analysing its effectiveness.
