I have just completed my HGV Class 1 and John Hutchings did my final two days training. He is highly professional and knowledgeable. I am sure it was due to his training that I was successful . I would highly recommend John to anyone wishing to pass their training. I would also like to thank Jane from the Portsmouth branch for her excellent training that saw me through my HGV Class 2 back in September last year.


Enjoyed my 5 day Lgv class 2 driving course at Romsey, my instructor was Tim, he makes you feel relaxed and gives you confidence, with a good sense of humor very professional, I passed my driving test first time because of this, many thanks Tim ?


An enjoyable and educational experience made easy by professional tutor. Can highly recommend.

Our Portsmouth HGV Training Facilities

Our Portsmouth depot is an approved DVSA testing centre that is available to all of our HGV driver training students across the whole of Hampshire. This gives our students a major advantage as they can use these top-quality facilities throughout their HGV training course. Also, students are able to complete their HGV driving test from our Portsmouth depot!

It is extremely rare to find HGV training companies that have their own on-site reversing facilities, as most sites are not big enough to allow this. This means you can practice your HGV reversing manoeuvres on the same facilities that you will be tested on!

Course Duration

If you decide to take one of our HGV training courses at our Portsmouth depot, you will have a wide range of training courses to choose from. The duration of your training will depend on your current experience and confidence levels. Those who are less confident will require a longer course than those who are more familiar with driving an HGV on the road.

We have both HGV Class 1 & Class 2 courses available for you to book online now!
