Obtaining an HGV or PCV driving licence can be an expensive business.
And when you factor in the number of driver training ‘brokers’ out there ready and waiting to charge you, in some cases, twice as much as the actual cost – it’s worth doing your research!
We don’t want prospective drivers being put off by high prices and unrealistic promises pushed by brokers, so we’ve partnered with trusted provider MT Training Services to offer you excellent value training across the South & South West of England!
