It's on the thread entitled Advantage HGV, but I'kk put it on here for you too Wink

Welcome to the PDA Aldo

I see you've read both threads on here concerning Advantage HGV and are now aware of the problems our Members have had of training with them.

The promises they make on their website about driver shortahes and finding you work after training are false. Work will be difficult to find for a new driver, whoever you train with, as there are so many HGV drivers out of work at the moment, and Advantage are well aware of this.

I have not met anyone yet who has been given any work by Advantage, after passing with Advantage, and I think that says it all.

They are a broker and will pass your training on to a driving school in your area, who would charge you less if you went directly to them.

The PDA has dealt with this school in the past and can strongly recommend it.

http://www.ritchiestraining.co.uk/?q=category/index/id/110

One last bit of advice, so many Brokers have gone out of business during this last 3 years and have left drivers, like yourself, 2000 lighter but not having had any training at all.
To avoid this happening to you if against all the advice you still decide to go with Advantage, you need to pay with a CREDIT card, so at leat you stand a chance of getting some of the money back from them.

Hope this helps

Pat

Hi every one I have decided to take the plunge and start on the long road to becoming a professional driver. I need some guidance as to a good training organisation within 30 miles of the Northwich area, I have seen the link on the forums but would love to hear from the actual end user.

The indusrty i currently work in is being regulated out of existence and methods of pay changed. I have no issue with genuine training that makes you a better driver but first got to get licence and a job first.

Hi...er...o (thats a long forum name innit) welcome...there are some on here who would argue that the haulage industry will eventually be regulated to death, meanwhile I am sure someone will come on when time allows (the nature of the job) and give advice...have a good look through the forums while waiting... Confused

Hi, 'older'

I did my training with TRANSED in Stoke.
They are a really good bunch of guys ( and girls ), genuine and talk straight as it should be with no pussy-footing around.

They do driver training at all levels, CPC training and NVQ stuff too.

I'm not saying there will suit everyone, but they certainly did the business for me.

Maybe a complaint to Google Ads bur more likely it needs to be looked at by the Trading Standards Office.

I also see these claims featured in the Sun on a Thursday by many similar firms on a regular basis.

Thanks for the link.
