Passing class 2 with LGV Training Company!

I'd like to really thank these guys for helping me through my Class 2 course from start to finish. Excellent communication and great to chat with, not boring or just wanting money, they actually want to help you in every way possible from getting your medical, theory, CPC and the practical test. Investing in them will benefit you in so many ways and I am glad I picked them. Thank you to the 3 members of staff who was assigned to me during the last several months and offered additional recruitment help. See you on the road!
