The Government over the weekend has announced major changes to the driving licence system.

*Car and trailer driving tests (B+E) will stop on 20 September 2021. You can no longer book a car and trailer driving test for on or after that date*. Find out how the rules are changing. Car and trailer driving test – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

As this has just been sprung on us it will take us a few days to evaluate this, so please bear with us, we will be in touch with those affected.

Thanks to Ian and steve for getting me through, couldn’t have done it without you! First time as well, see ya on the road, cheers.

I had a fantastic experience with theses guys last year after chatting with them at the New Forest Show, I passed my C1 licence and can now finally get a bigger horsebox for the show season, Passing was really down to my instructor as I was a nervous wreck, couldn’t recommend enough – at a great price – Before I bumped into theses at the show I was quoted £2000 when I previously phoned another company and they told me I`d need my C licence which is actually for massive lorries! Thanks guys and I’ll come say hello if I see you at any more shows in the summer.

Absolutely fantastic team from the long winded web chat and endless emails on my behalf, keep putting it off I finally have had the chance to book my course. They were brilliant at fitting me in around my days off and even split my course over a couple of weeks. All instructors are friendly down to earth and easy to talk too. I cant recommend these guys enough, I have been handing out cards at work for the guys also looking to upgrade their licences
