Re: Advanced driving tests

I did, as it is part of your ongoing CPD. You can also claim for any training that you may have.

Re: Advanced driving tests

Any legitament training fees/business costs.

The only time I think you could not is if you were a PDI(which i dont think you are) and it was prior to you becoming self employed.

Re: Advanced driving tests

Hi,

My understanding is a PDI not working on badge or (pre-badge training) cannot claim the costs associated with qualification as they are required to do the core role as a driving instructor. After qualification then all costs deducatable as CPD.

That is correct according to my accountant and HMRC.
