What I would highlight I did a weeks HGV C+E Articulated Lorry Training in Exeter, Devon with FCD. I thoroughly enjoyed my Training. A lot harder then i thought it would be. This was the 3rd lot of Training I've done with FCD and I recently went back for the 4th time to do my ADR Training. They instruct in a very clear manner. I originally did my B+E Car and Trailer Training with FCD several years ago now and passed first time. I was so pleased with the Training and how affordable it was that last year I went beck to do my C Rigid and a few weeks later I did my C+E. I can say that the standard of instruction is very high. I would highly recommend them to anyone requiring Driver Training. I also just after Christmas 2010, completed my ADR Training with FCD again a very positive experience and would highly recommend FCD.

What I would highlight I thoroughly enjoyed my Articulated, Class 1 Lorry Training with FCD. It was a loy harder then I expected. I passed my rigid test a few weeks prior to doing my artic, and it was a challenge that I enjoyed. I learnt very quickly and gained a thourough understanding of what was expected of me, this was purely down to my instructor, who was brilliant. A friendly, relaxed learning experience. i would highly recommend FCD to anyone wishing to do and HGV Driving Course. Cheers Ross

What I would highlight Superb in every way. I did my C Rigid Training just prior to doing my HGV Class 1 and the whole experience was superb from start to finish. It took just over two weeks for my licence to come back from the DVLA after passing my rigid and I was ready to go. FCD had taken me through the process right from the beginning and in less then 3 months from start to finish I had completed my C and C+E Training. After retiring from the local constabulary i was eager for a complete career change and this suited me to a tee. The Training with FCD was informative and enjoyable.

What I would highlight I would recommend this course for several reasons. The standard of service and training is exceptional. I've spoken to other attendees and they all feel the same. Excellent Training, very well organised and easy to understand. i enjoyd my rigid Training with FCD and was confident with my C+E it was harder then I expected it to be, however with the help of my instructor and some hard work I passed first time. The standard of driver Training was very high as I've experienced in the passed.
As a Training Provider i can not recommend FCD highly enough. From the moment you contact them to the passing your test. There support and knowledge instantly puts you at ease. Their professional, relaxed approach to Training is superb. I had all the thinking taken out of the whole process for me. I has everything explained in great detail, this gave me a lot of confidence right from the start. Again highly recommended.


What could be improved Being watched by the examiner throughout the test. Unsettling, but as i felt quite confident i just concentrated on the drive and did it.

What I would highlight Well where do I start. This course is suitable for anyone wanting to gain the C+E licence entitlement to drive articulated lorry's. The Training and course is both informative and enjoyable. I have learnt to drive to a very high standard. Bearing in mind I'm a Class one driver with over 20 years of experience at that standard, I still learnt a lot about how these large vehicles operate. I would recommend FCD due to there professional and enthusiastic aproach to driver Training.
This is easy. They are brilliant in every way. From the moment you phone FCD to passing your test I felt supported by every member of staff. Nothing is too much effort for FCD and they always go the extra mile to make sure that you are prepared, relaxed and totally informed every step of the way. You will enjoy every moment of your Training. I would have no hesitation in recommending FCD to anyone wanting to learn to drive.


What could be improved Nothing to not like. Affordable, professional, superb instructors. highly recommended Training School for HGV's.
