Introduction

At our Logistics Training Centre you will be able to take advantage of all practical and classroom training courses. Where possible, all training and testing will be conducted at our centre but there may be occasions when your tests will need to be conducted at Government centres in Bristol.   

We would recommend that before committing to any practical training course that you take advantage of the ‘practical assessment’ which will give you the opportunity to come to our centre, meet with the trainers and see the vehicles you may be training on. 

We are able to offer assessments most days at 4pm. If you would like to book a practical assessment then please contact us to arrange your appointment. 

You may qualify for funding. Below shows the full commercial fee along with the potential funded rates (where applicable). To check your eligibility please apply using the links below.
