With over 3,000 lorry driving jobs available in the Dorset area and over 100,000 nationwide, anyone considering to get an LGV/HGV driving licence may say that they have made a lifetime investment, and a profitable one.
A Category C licence will enable you to drive vehicles over 3,500kg (with a trailer up to 750kg). As an LGV/HGV driver, you would drive commercial vehicles over 7.5 tonnes, including rigid trucks, articulated lorries, tankers, transporters and trailer wagons and more and gain access to work within a variety of industries
Location: Bournemouth and surrounding areas.
You will receive a tailor-made learning experience, based on your experience and needs, on a one to one basis.
Most courses are booked Monday – Friday but can be midweek or Saturday testing if the trainee requires.* Training and passing on automatic will give you a full manual and automatic lorry licence provided you already hold a manual car licence.
From past experience we have learned that most trainees achieve the required level in a 20 – 24 hours course. The hours are spread over five days, and each lesson has a duration of 4 hours. However this can be adjusted to suit individual needs.
The day of the test will have a separate layout, with at least one hour of training before the test, depending on the time the test had been booked for.
Your training will consist of verbal and practical training for the following:
• improving your general driving skills to make sure they are up to the DVSA driving test standard.
• showing you popular test routes you are likely to encounter as part of your driving test.
• teaching you about the reversing manoeuvre which you will be required to do as part of your practical test.
• teaching you the ‘show me/ tell me’ questions which will be asked at the beginning of your test.
Please consider when deciding which LGV training course would suit you best, that if you try to select a shorter trailer training course in an attempt to save money, you may not pass your LGV test first time, and may end up spending more money on re-tests than if you selected the most appropriate course for your skill level in the first place. If you are unsure about which LGV course would suit you best, then please contact our office where we will be more than happy to help you decide.
