We’ve previously written here about the need to book your CSCS test direct with the examination centres online.
You can do this on the CITB website.
DO NOT JUST “GOOGLE” CSCS TESTS – you will no doubt find at the top a load of “online booking” sites. These all charge a “booking fee” which is totally unnecessary and will make your test cost about £15 more than it should.
I spent a few minutes “Mystery Shopping” one of these sites with equally mysterious details this afternoon to show you what I mean. £41.00 for a £21.00 test. It’s disgraceful.
It’s little wonder people get frustrated with the CSCS scheme when people do this.
ALSO – if you need the NVQ to be able to get a Blue CSCS Card – you will NOT have to take the CSCS test straight after you qualify – anyone with a new NVQ is EXEMPT from the CSCS Test for TWO Years.
NEVER Google CSCS Tests – ALWAYS book direct
