    RSM Driver Training’s Starter pack includes everything you need to start the process of becoming a HGV/PCV driver including medical appointment, online theory revision program (6 month subscription) and your HGV/PCV Theory Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception tests


    Apply For Provisional Entitlement

    After you have attended your medical you will need to send the D2 & D4 form, along with your driving licence photocard, to the DVSA in the envelope we provided. It can take up to 3 weeks for the DVSA to return your licence. In the meantime, we recommend that you study for your relevant theory tests.

    Pass Your Theory & Hazard Tests

    Let us know once your provisional licence has been returned and we will book your Theory Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception tests at a local theory centre to you. You will need to pass both tests to start your driving course with us.

    Book Your Driver Training Course

    Once you have passed the theories, we will be pleased to confirm a booking for you on your driver training course. After passing your practical tests, before you are able to drive commercially, you will need to complete Drivers CPC training in order to obtain your Drivers’ Qualification card.

    Absolutely enjoyed every part of my direct access course through RSM for a Class 1 C+E licence. My dad passed with them last year upgrading from his Class 2, so I decided to give it a go. Both my instructors made me feel at ease over the 2 weeks and thoroughly knew what they were doing.Apart from letting my nerves get the better of me a little during my test, I went in feeling very confident I'd come out happy, and I got it 1st first.I would recommend anyone interested in going for an upgrade to their licence coming through here, especially after seing them take other guys/girls who have failed elsewhere and bring them comfortably up to pass.

    I passed my C1E driving test today, first time!!! And it's all credit to the team at RSM but especially Mick. Mick was my instructor, who took me out each day, but I also had Jay once and also Jay for my reverse instruction, who were both brilliant. Mick taught me the superb skills to carry on throughout my driving life, and how to be a safe and professional driver. He made it a very fun and I really enjoyed his company. His knowledge of the road and his teaching skills were absolutely brilliant and second to none. I can't thank him enough for teaching me how to be a better safer driver. They say you never forget a great teacher, and I will never forget Mick for his brilliant training. Thankyou to Mick and the whole team at RSM! Hopefully see you again one day in the near future!

    RSM were incredible at getting me through my C1 course so I could go on to drive an Ambulance. The admin team were really efficient and corresponding with me and getting me booked in as soon as possible, being flexible with my schedule. My instructor; Mick, was amazing and I cannot recommend him enough. He was approachable, patient and encouraging the whole way throughout my lessons, even when I doubted myself. He took all the time needed to get me from being a beginner to being confident on the road, and made me feel relaxed the whole time. All the other staff I met along the way were friendly as well. I cannot recommend RSM enough and if you want to smash your C1, ask for Mick!

    I undertook my C1 Driver Training with RSM a couple of weeks ago to be able to drive an ambulance. I passed my C1 first time with no minors last Saturday. I would like to thank my instructor Mark as he is definitely the reason I done so well and passed my test. I could not have asked for a better instructor and I believe Marks instruction is the reason I felt so confident and at ease, Mark ensured I was pushed to my ability to do the best I possibly could but in a safe manor. So a big thank you to Mark and the RSM team for making me feel so comfortable and at ease. Mark is a very competent instructor, very knowledgable and makes you believe in yourself more and have more confidence. I Would 100% recommend RSM anyone. Thanks once again to the RSM team and Mark to getting me on step closer on my journey in the ambulance service.

    I recently completed my training through RSM by my employer. I can honestly say RSM are excellent in every aspect of their field. From all the girls in the office to the instructors, were first class and incredibly helpful.I would like to say a special thank you to Jay who was my instructor. He made me feel very comfortable from the first minute. Extremely thorough and highly professional in everything he did. So thank you for a great experience Jay!I'm now wanting to do further training for more licences and want to complete these through RSM again, which says it all really.Thank you for all your support, see you soon 🙂

    I have just completed my training and passed my class 2 licence with RSM. The ladies in the office are amazing, they keep you informed and answer any questions you might have. My instructor was Sarah, she was brilliant, she made me feel at ease, gave me confidence and valuable knowledge. I really enjoyed learning the skills needed. Every member of the RSM team I encountered was lovely and shared their advice. So if your looking to try a new career in this industry, I would highly recommend RSM.

Massive shout out to Christian and Mark for training me on the rigid and then moving me up into the artic. They were excellent, very informative, calm and supportive through the whole thing! The other instructors at RSM were wonderful too sharing experiences of their years on the road and helpful tips to take with me for my years ahead in the trucking industry! They were all happy to answer any questions I had.Female friendly environment I didn't feel I was treated any different which was nice!Highly recommend booking in with these guys!I'm so thrilled I have my class 1 license now! Really pleased I chose to train with RSM!

    My experience with RSM has been fantastic from start to finish. Booking my training course itself was a breeze, at every stage everyone has been so friendly and informative. As someone who booked and paid for the course off my own back, this was very important to me and played a massive part in making me decide to go with RSM. Having come from bus driving previously, I was deemed ready to make the most of the change in staging rules and go straight into a C+E vehicle & test. I had Russ for my assessment and training, and I honestly could not say a bad word at all about him! He is an excellent instructor, very well informed and made sure I knew everything I needed to do to meet the requirements of the test. We chatted loads along the way and I felt completely comfortable throughout every step of my training. I passed my off-road manoeuvres test first-time, and then went confidently into my HGV C+E driving test soon after. Which I’m pleased to say I passed first-time also! I couldn’t have done it without the excellent training I received from Russ, and the service and hospitality from everyone in the office and the rest of the training team was second to none. I honestly can not recommend them enough, and if this kind of training is a path you are looking to go down - you should 100% pick up the phone and have a chat with RSM! I will be recommending everyone I know to come to yourselves. Thank you so much for helping me start a new career!
