Are you dealing with an LGV/PCV agency? Please be aware!

  • Flashy web site?
  • Does my training include mod 2 and 4 at no extra cost?
  • Are those lorries and buses really theirs? They look so good
  • Why don’t they publish their prices as we and other trainers do?
  • Why do you have to email to get in contact or to find out prices?
  • See if you can get a straight answer on those prices?
  • See if you can get a straight answer on where you are training?
  • See if you can get a straight answer on anything?
  • Is the first thing they want is your credit card details?
  • I think we’ve mentioned that!

All we are saying is … be careful!
