We have invested almost £1.2 million in our facilities

In this video Matt Alwright presents "You've Been Scammed", don't get caught out, use a local school like Tockwith Training.
A series that highlight scams. In this particular episode Matt talks to 23 year old Steve who paid £2400 to HGV/LGV Training broker. The company promised Steve, HGV training as well as a job after passing his test and did appear extremely professional. In reality this HGV training broker only provided a medical and theory tests. Steve was left out of pocket with no licence and no job. The advice that comes from this programme is visit the training provider before you part with any money. Use a local reputable provider and avoid those who claim to be national providers as they don't exist.
