Ask a local training school mate to get an accurate figure , they'll take you through it all, since you are only 18 you might struggle to get work though because of insurance and you will get no return on the outlay , I could be wrong but a lot of ads give an age stipulation and that reason , have words with a decent driving school and ring a few haulage companies up see what they say, in the meantime do a bit of van work and get some real road experience, good luck 👍

£2500 -£3000ish for licences, theories, medical, tests, CPC and Tacho if you pass everything first time. There are lots of companies willing to charge £4k+ to hold your hand through the paperwork.

It costs you your sanity, your social life and your health in many cases. Steer clear and get a better job.
