3. You will have a progress record to show you how well you are doing You can also show your mates how you are getting on too!

4. All lessons are on a one to one basis unless you want to learn with a friend and share costs  If you like the idea of learning with a friend we see nothing wrong with that, it saves you money, reduces learning time and helps build confidence. We will never pair you up with a stranger, the request for two to one training has to come from you  see T’s & C’s.

6. We set you achievable goals. (with a bit of hard work)

Changes to the Minibus test D1

You may have read that the minibus test has changed recently, the changes are small and should not adversely affect your training, the main change is the manoeuvre has been outsourced to the private sector with the DVSA only conducting 'last resort' CPC 3 A (reverse manoeuvre) tests. With regards to your training this will mean that you have to take the CPC 3 A test before the CPC 3 B (driving) test and possibly on separate days.  At present and until the dust settles we will continue to use the DVSA  CPC 3 A option and we are waiting for other suppliers to come on stream to widen our options. You shouldn't notice any change in the delivery of our first rate training however as the DVSA are still charging the original fee of £115.00 for the CPC 3 B test there will be an...

What should you do? you really should seek training, in the New Year there will be a new accredited towing course launched by the DVSA and other parties. In the meantime follow the Government's recommendations and have training with a qualified trainer who will steer you through the safety and manoeuvring elements and train you on how to tow safely on the road. The Government and DVSA advice if found below and our...
