Your average distribution and logistics provider operates a fleet of vehicles ranging from small delivery vans up to full-size articulated lorries. Such a broad choice of vehicles requires that company to employ drivers with different kinds of commercial driving licences. In addition to their individual licences, those drivers also need fleet driver training that addresses their particular tasks. At the HGV Training Centre, we provide all the training this company and it drivers need.
We offer a full range of training classes for HGV, LGV, and PCV licences, along with CPC training and customised fleet driver training for individual drivers or large groups. We are one of the few training companies in the UK to offer such an extensive menu of training choices. That makes the HGV Training Centre your one-stop choice for all your company training needs.
All of us are aware that the haulage and transport industries are in desperate need of new drivers. With tens of thousands of jobs currently open, there is a real need for significant changes that encourage more young people to enter the driving profession. That being said, we do not want to be a hindrance to anyone who wishes to learn how to drive professionally. That is one of the reasons we offer so many options.
More training options for new drivers means more opportunities for them to choose from. Better yet, more choices make it easier for recruiters to do their jobs. When young people find out that professional driving is not confined to one particular kind of work or vehicle, they are more apt to explore the possibility of driving for a living.
Regardless of the training programme, all of our professional driver training is designed to:
The more options we can offer our clients, the better we can fulfil our mission to contribute to haulage, transport and logistics in a measurable way. In everything from new driver classes to complete fleet driver training programmes, it is our intention that the HGV Training Centre will always make a difference.
Haulage and transport companies have very specific training needs from one year to the next. Those needs must be met if our clients are to remain competitive in the marketplace. In light of that, they cannot afford to work with a training partner that is unable to change along with them. They need a training partner that is adaptable and flexible. The HGV Training Centre is such a partner.
We routinely demonstrate our flexibility and adaptability to our CPC fleet driver training. As you know, HGV and PCV drivers are required to renew their Driver CPC certificates once every five years. What you might not know is that the government gives us great latitude in determining the kinds of CPC training we want to offer. We have the freedom to adapt any of our off-the-shelf solutions to your needs, or create a unique training programme from scratch.
Keep in mind that CPC training is all about maintaining driver competence. But competence is measured in different ways from one company to the next. For example, a package delivery company will not need fleet driver training that relates to the transport of flammable petroleum products. What they will need are training classes that teach their drivers to be more efficient in their daily routines as well as safer in congested traffic conditions. We can customise fleet driver training specifically to those two needs.
Training to become a professional driver involves some things that are common across all licence classes. But there are also some distinct differences from one licence class to another. The HGV, LGV and PCV classifications demonstrate as much. For example:
The beauty of offering so many training programmes throughout the UK is that we can be counted on no matter what type of licence a student wants to earn. But we do not stop there. We go above and beyond HGV, LGV and PCV licences to offer additional training that you will not always find with other training companies.
If we stopped at offering training for commercial driving licences and fleet programmes, we would still be one of the leading training companies in the UK. So our other training classes only make us that much better. For example, consider our forklift truck training. We train and certify forklift operators who then go on to work at companies of all sizes throughout the UK. Our forklift training is a multifaceted programme encompassing vehicle operation, load management, and workplace safety.
Non-professionals can come to the HGV Training Centre as well. One of our most popular courses for non-professionals is trailer-towing training. This training is appropriate for individuals who own utility trailers or caravans. We teach trailer owners everything they need to know to operate safely under a variety of conditions. And if a particular driver requires an enhanced licence to tow a larger caravan or trailer, our training prepares that individual to take the practical skills test.
Believe it or not, we even offer horsebox training. We realise that the vast majority of horsebox owners use their vehicles for recreational purposes and, as such, do not need enhanced licences. But we also realise that proper training is essential to keeping horses safe during transport. We are more than happy to provide that training to horse and horsebox owners.
There is little doubt that the HGV Training Centre should be your training company of choice for commercial driver training. We encourage you to inquire further about our fleet driver training school and our individual, new driver training courses. Each of our classes is taught by an experienced and licenced professional who has spent time on the road in real-life settings. Our centres offer a conducive learning environment by way of a concentrated approach and very helpful support staff always willing to answer questions and solve problems. Want to know more?
