DTA came into full operation in the year 2000, the aim was to train all categories of the public who could obtain certificate courses in professional driving. DTA trains, tests, evaluates, and certifies professional drivers. It started as a special programme for truck/tractor drivers but has in recent times ventured into small vehicle as well as simulator training.

The academy has graduated over 700 professional students from inception of which some of the students are now working with other logistic companies.
