WALLACE delivers training Step By Step. If you need to get Provisional PCV entitlement and start to study for your Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception theory test our QUICK START PACKAGE is ideal for you. Our Quick Start Package is available almost every Saturday and some weekdays and we usually only require 3 to 5 days notice.
If you have already passed your PCV Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception theory tests then we can arrange your Driver Training and Driving Test straight away. Generally, as the Driving Tests are usually booking around 2 to 3 weeks ahead then thats the sort of notice we ask for. But if you need to start at short notice let us know and well see what we can do. And dont forget, once youve made your booking, you can always complete your Driver CPC while you are waiting to start (because youll need to have your Driver Qualification Card (DQC) in your hand to be a working driver.
Reason to Ask:Reason to Ask:Some providers ask you to pay for the whole course and CPC upfront, even before your provisional licence has arrived!
With Wallace, by taking each stage Step by Step you can go as fast or as slow are you wish (and as your finances allow). And if youve done some of the steps yourself already, thats great! With WALLACE you only pay for what you need.
Our estimated start date for driver training is usually between 2 – 4 weeks ahead, subject to availability, after you have let us know youve passed your Multiple Choice & Hazard Perception theory tests.
Over the phone you may be told you can expect to get a certain amount of training hours but how can you be sure your timewillbe spent actually driving, not wasting time with several tea breaks, lunch breaks etc. Howeverweconfirm the training hours you have booked in writing. You wont find any small print hidden on our website about vaguetraining days.
We are happy to state, in writing, all the stages (and the costs) to get your licence as well as providing detailed information about the content of your training course booking. Youll know what youve booked and thats what we will provide.
You can visit our school, meet our staff and instructors and try our training vehicles.
A one-size fits all 5 day course does not suit everyone. We have supplied guidance next to the course details. Self-Select the appropriate course for your needs. But if you are still unsure arrange an Evaluation Lesson.
When you leave a 300 deposit and book your course you will also receiveFREEDriver CPC Learning Material.
We are certain that with proper and correct tuition you can be sure to reach test standard and pass your test without additional expense a re-test protection package.
And we certainly wont ask you to pay up-front, in advance, for an extra test that you probably wont need.
However, if required to re-sit a driving test, please seeStep Threefor the cost of a 2 hour warm-up session and use of vehicle for test plus DVSA fee.
You need to look at the small print. It may beonly a guaranteed opportunity to take more than one test, not a guarantee of their ability to teach you fully and properly, or a guarantee of your ability to drive and pass the driving test.
When you make a booking with us, you will save time and money, receive quality training and reliable booking service.We have our own instructors and vehicles and provide accredited and approved training and only provide training for clients who book with us directly.
Nationally advertised training agencies cant help you in the same way as they do not have their own training vehicles and simply sell your bookingto the cheapest, unqualified and unregulated providers that they can (and they may not be anywhere near you either!)
By providing you with cheap training they keep more of your fees. They have no interest in providing quality training once they have received your money. A faceless salesman over the phone can promise the earth but doesnt have to deliver – especially when (their small print) says you cant get you money back after 7 days of booking!
You can only establish you are talking to a genuine school by visiting them and taking a look at their training vehicles (may be on an assessment lesson).
Wallace School of Transport is an independent school, we are not brokers/agents.

Why Trained Drivers Keep Loads Safe on the Roads
After a bit of research, I ended up choosing Wallace and Im glad I did. My first phone call was very informative and I had only to choose when to start the training. Got all the books from them, studied everything and passed my theory test first time. Went to do some practical training with Gerry the instructor and got my skills polished to a very high standard. Anticipate, not react. The best advice I could ever get. Passed my practical first time and also the following CPC theory and practical tests. If someone asks me where to go for a truck licence, my answer is 1000 times Wallace School of Transport. They care for you as if you were family. That counts more than anything.
I passed the practical test first time and this is undoubtedly due to the professional and supportive manner in which I was instructed. Without this, I have no doubt that my progress wouldnt have been so quick or productive. Please once again pass my sincere thanks onto both the administrative staff and Michael himself.
We have been very pleased with the help and assistance and standard of training we have received from your team. I will be in touch shortly to make arrangements for our new trainees.
