Thus, this training laid a solid foundation on which training wing could further build on 250 officers were trained at that initial stage by the Training Wing.

Later on 12 March 1998 , a training camp was established at lines Headquarters Islamabad to cater for the training needs of incoming officers. In 1999, the training camp was shifted to Chakri as a separate entity. Here, the training wing not only conducted basic Motorway Police Orientation courses but refresher courses were also made the part of training activities. During that phase, 1999-2002, 213 officers received Basic Orientation training, whereas, 285 officers underwent refresher courses. The growing need of the training necessitated the shifting of training camp Chakri to Sheikhupura in May 2002, where it is presently situated with the name of National Highways & Motorway Police Training College.

The commencement of promotional courses, commando courses and capacity-building courses rendered it a full bloom of a police training institution.
