Daves Bates Controls has been fitting He-Man Dual Controls for the driving instruction industry for more than 30 years, with thousands of happy customers across the south west and beyond. Dave Bates Controls uses He-Man dual controls exclusively, as they are tailor-made for each make and model of car, and are ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 accredited. Each He-Man system is designed using the latest computer technology, and then produced using hi-tech methods involving precision laser cutting, robotic welding and close tolerance machinery.
