How much is PCV/PSV Training?

This page is here to answer just that.  You will find the price, a brief overview and a link to the relevant page of the website where more details on that stage can be found.

Medical & Theory Tests – from £175

These are covered by our PCV Starter Package for just £175 (£225 if you also require Driver CPC).  Purchasing/arranging each element yourself could easily total £270 or £315 respectively!

You will receive:

  • Provisional Licence application form D2
  • Digital Tachograph Card application form

Category D1 – from £555

D1 training is charged at £55/hr with a practical test fee of £115.  We find the best method for this type of training is to take the candidate for a 4 hour assessment (£220) and advise an additional number of hours to come to test standard forming the course.

Alternatively, if you are a confident person who has experience in driving large vans, are able to receive instruction and reapply it well – a 8 hour course may be adequate for you priced at just £555 including the practical test fee.

Full details are available on the main Category D1 Training page.

Category D courses are usually run from Monday to Friday.  They include:

You are required to have passed your PCV Multiple Choice, Hazard Perception and Case Studies theories before attending a Category D course.
