Western Greyhound, a bus company providing service in Plymouth, and Cornwall and Devon in general, has been put up for sale. The financially troubled company has undergone a number of setbacks this year despite having provided years of reliable service to local residents. Among those problems is an ongoing shortage of qualified PCV drivers. Unfortunately, the bus driver shortage is persistent all across the UK. If you have been thinking of a earning a bus driving licence, we urge you not to let PCV training costs deter you from your career.

In order to drive a bus professionally, one must possess a valid PCV licence. In order to get that licence, an individual must pass a health exam, pass a 100-question theory test, and take and pass practical skills training and testing. As daunting as it may sound, it is actually easier and less time-consuming than you might think. It is also very affordable when compared to going to university and earning a degree.

Training classes vary depending on what you are trying to accomplish, so the only way to know for sure how much getting your licence would cost is to contact a training company such as the HGV Training Centre. Having said that, there are a number of different ways to pay for training:

You might also be able to ask relatives to contribute to a fund that would pay for training. That fund may be structured as a gift or as a group loan that you will pay back over time. It never hurts to ask.

Again, do not let PCV training costs deter you from pursuing your new career as a professional bus driver. If you want to work, a way can be found to pay for it. Let us see if we can help.
