Initial Driver Training (Practical & Classroom)
Alpine Training offers driver PCV training both to private individuals and to companies wishing to enhance or upgrade the driving skills of their staff. Training includes practical on-road tuition (for both manual and automatic vehicles) and preparation for classroom-based theory and hazard perception tests.
In-Company & Off-Site Training Locations (including residential)
Alpine Training can offer its programmes both in and around its own base in beautiful North Wales or those programmes can be brought to another location on request.
Up-To-Date & Relevant Course Materials
Alpine Trainers use a variety of materials and methods to ensure the training offered is as interesting and relevant as possible. Materials can be modified to suit your specific requirements.
You can find out about the different parts of the PCV driving test here:
How much training you need depends on your current driving skills and experience.
For the practical part of the PCV Driving Test, even capable drivers with experience of driving other large vehicles previously (i.e. lorries / large vans) would generally need at least five days training before the test itself.
For less experienced drivers, we would suggest a minimum of eight days training, sometimes more.
The best way for you (and for us) to judge your training needs would be to take a free on-road driving assessment by one of our driver trainers in our training coach. In order to do this, you will need to have a Provisional Category D driving licence (both parts) and arrange an assessment with us.
Alternatively, you can call us on the number below for an informal chat or to arrange to come and see us.
