I went from a standard car licence (3.5 tonne), to a LGV2, which lets me drive upto 30 tonne (rigid) - no trailers etc.
as said, total lost around 1000, but you have to do another theory/hazard perception.

hope this helps...

if you are over 21 you can go straight into raining for the class 2 (7.5t and above) if under, you'll have to do a 7.5t test then the class 2 (although you only ned to do one theory)

i think the bill for my training was 1300 but thats including the retest cos i failed 1st time round! without the retest i think it was about 1050
