Thank you to all our customers for bearing with us during this pandemic.

As you know the DVSA have now resumed practical testing for LGV, however they are only starting with a phased reopening so tests are being conducted on a much reduced scale.

Due to covid-19 we have had to adjust how we conduct our training from our usual 2:1 basis to 1:1 so our course structures have changed to accommodate this. Please contact us for up to date course options.

During the gradual reintroduction of testing whereby the DVSA are only giving us two to three weeks notice of examiner availability it is going to take a bit more time than hoped to complete the tests for all candidates who had training/tests cancelled during the lockdown but rest assured we are working as quickly as possible to provide new dates.

For all new enquiries please contact us for prices but please bear in mind there may be a longer wait than usual for availability.

Renewing a photocard driving licence

To make it easier for drivers who need to update their photocard licence with a new photograph at the end of the 10 years validity, photocard driving licences that expire between 1 February 2020 and 31 August 2020 will be automatically extended for a period of 7 months from the date of expiry.

If your photocard expires between 1 February 2020 and 31 August 2020 you do not need to take any action as the extension will be automatic. You will be sent a renewal reminder before your 7 month extension ends. If you have already applied online to renew your photocard this will be processed as normal. If you have already sent a paper application to renew your photocard there will be delays in processing but the 7 month extension will apply in the meantime.

This temporary extension applies to the photocard expiry date. This is separate to entitlement to drive. If your entitlement to drive is due to expire, you will need to renew this entitlement in the normal way by making an application to continue driving. It is illegal to drive without a valid licence.
