After a bit of research, I ended up choosing Wallace and I'm 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.Mr Augusto Barale

Will I need to bring a photograph?
Not normally, if you have a valid UK photocard licence you DO NOT NEED a replacement photo.

Please also bring photo ID (like your passport) and a cheque payable to DVLA Swansea for £20.
How long does it take for my licence to be returned? And can I drive in the meantime? What if I am stopped by the police without my licence?
Licences are normally returned in around 5 to 10 days although DVLA say allow up to 28 days. You can drive without your licence as DVLA have a record of your current entitlement on their computer and the authorities can access DVLA's computer if required.
What if I need to exchange my EU licence into a UK licence - should I do this before attending the Quick Start?
You don't have to exchange your licence before attending, you can change your licence at the same time you apply for provisional HGV/LGV/PCV licence.
DVLA charge £43 to exchange licences. Bring your EU/EEA driving licence and your Passport or EU/EEA National ID card or Biometric Residence Permit and a Passport type & size photograph.
