One thing is for sure, going direct to a local LGV and Driver CPC Training Provider should save time and money. Using a third party (Broker or Middleman) can mean paying more for your training. Why use a 3rd party when it’s quicker and easier to go direct? The average cost for a 5 day LGV training course (Cat C1, C or C+E) should cost between £900 and £1,100 (Module 3.) The test fee for the practical driving test (Module 3 is currently £115), test fee for HGV Module 4 (£55). LGV Training companies can tailor training to meet your specific requirements. Make sure your quote includes all tuition, Vat and test fees. It is worth speaking with your local provider to see if any funding in your area is available.
Do not be mislead. There is no such thing as a guaranteed pass. You could take your HGV Driving test 100 times and still fail. If you were to fail 100 times (unlikely event) then we would advise you consider a new career path. The simple fact of the matter is you have to earn that pass by giving a safe and competent drive for 1 and 1/2 hours. Do that and you’ll pass.
Some training companies now offer a pass protection facility. This in essence gives you another 2 practical tests should you need them. Consider the 1st time pass rate for HGV/LGV practical tests is just over 50%. For some students it gives peace of mind and less pressure on getting a pass lst time, knowing you have retests to fall back on.
