As previously mentioned, we have introduced fully automatic and air-conditioned training vehicles, additionally, we aim to ensure that all of our vehicles are no older than 4 years old.

Course Duration

The length of our HGV driver training courses varies depending on the levels of skills, knowledge and confidence that our students already have at operating an HGV. The training course that you will need to complete will vary depending on these factors, with those students with less confidence needing more training before they can complete their driving test. We will ensure that all of our students are in a position where they can safely and confidently operate an HGV before they take their test.

Additionally, the length of your HGV training course will vary depending on whether you complete an HGV Class 1 or Class 2 training course.
