CPL Training is known for its first-rate service in helping you gain your personal licence in England and Wales. As well as our popular online service, we can also help you access face-to-face personal licence training.

Face-to-Face Course and Exam – The learner completes a full day training course with an experienced tutor at one of our training centres located across the country. They then sit the multiple-choice exam on the same day while the knowledge is still fresh in their minds. The learner also receives a handbook before attending the course so they can familiarise themselves with the course content. Prior reading isn’t essential as our tutors will cover everything as part of the training session. Get in touch to find out more about our face-to-face locations and dates.
