HGV / LGV Driver Training
Class 2 Driver Training is the “old” term for LGV C driver training, it is one and the same. We offer driver training courses in preparation for the driving test for the C and C1 Category vehicle:
- LGV / HGV Rigid Category C and C1 – 1:1 courses from 2 to 5 days
Our private manoeuvring area is a fantastic place to get you started safely away from other traffic in these larger vehicles. No pressure, just get used to the vehicle before going on the open road.
All LGV / HGV courses are subject to a driving assessment.
We use Volvo FM rigid vehicles, the FM9 can be used with the drawbar trailer for the C+E licence. All are automatic with the Volvo “I Shift” gearbox.
As these vehicles are very similar apart from the chassis layout this allow for easy transition from rigid to articulated, to enable the driver to concentrate on the vehicle as a whole and less about learning new controls.
All our vehicles are specifically engineered for driver training and testing, to meet the specification required for the test including the loaded weight.
LGV / HGV Test
We will arrange the test for you, there is an extra charge for a Saturday test date.
You can use our vehicle in which to take the test or a vehicle from your business or employer. An LGV test vehicle is required to be a specific standard, so please check with us first if not using one of our vehicles.
The LGV theory test must be taken, we will help you prepare for this.
Driving an HGV/LGV is about road safety, and carrying your load in a way that it arrives at the destination in the expected condition. Safe driving and manoeuvring skills are required to pass the test.
