Fast Track 100

Drivers facing points and a fine for traffic violations can opt instead to attend one of the training and awareness courses offered by this Berkshire company. DriveTech claims that more than 15,000 customers enrol in its speed awareness workshops every month, and it has more than 300,000 graduates across Britain. It also offers courses for beginners, along with fleet training for the likes of Sainsbury’s and a dozen British police forces. Founded by former policeman Chris Howell, the company acquired Liverpool-based Driving Services in 2007 for an undisclosed sum. Its sales have grown 57% a year from £2.6m in 2005 to £10.1m in 2008.
