COURSE IN Blaenau Gwent

Every day, hundreds of thousands of HGV drivers take to the roads of Europe moving the consumer goods and other cargo that make our economy work. These dedicated professionals often go unappreciated in a world that doesn’t understand how challenging it is to be a safe and productive driver. In reality, we all owe quite a bit to HGV drivers for the contributions they make. We would not have access to on-demand consumer goods at the prices we now enjoy without their hard work and dedication. This is one of the reasons we are thrilled to provide HGV training in Blaenau Gwent.

For the record, we also train PCV drivers as well. Their contributions are just as important for public transport, whether that means local bus transportation or long-distance transport for the tourism industry. PCV drivers can also undergo training here at the HGV Training Centre. We provide comprehensive training for all commercial driving licence categories.

The HGV Training Centre has worked hard over the last few years to establish ourselves as the leading provider of commercial driver training. We believe we have accomplished this as evidenced by the fact that we operate more than four dozen training centres throughout the UK. We are continuing to work hard to expand our business to include more corporate training for both initial licencing and CPC compliance.

Proven Training for Your Career

Here at the HGV Training Centre, our focus is on careers. In other words, we want you to learn everything you need to know to drive large commercial vehicles so that you can go on to enjoy a long and rewarding career as a professional. This means we do more than simply imparting knowledge in the classroom. We prepare our students to take their tests AND to be the best employees they can be for as long as they continue to work.

Truck driving over a bridge

Our HGV training in Blaenau Gwent is identical to the training we provide at all of our other facilities. It is based on a very specific and purposeful training approach that does not waste your time or money dealing with things that are unnecessary. We like to describe our training approach as fast-paced and intense, others find it easier to describe it simply as a ‘crash course’ approach. Whichever way you decide to define it is up to you.

The one thing that quickly becomes apparent once you begin training is that you will not be at it for long. The average student who learns quickly and is able to apply the knowledge can complete training in just a few weeks. Those who need a bit more time can certainly take it, but it is not usually necessary.

Does our training approach work? Absolutely. Across all of our training programmes, we boast a first-time pass rate consistently above 90%. By comparison, the average LGV pass rate across the UK is closer to 55%. It’s obvious that the numbers speak for themselves. Our training approach works, and works well.

Your Success Is Our Success

Our company was founded by a group of industry professionals who knew what it takes to be successful HGV or PCV driver. They set out to create a company that could help address the driver shortage by quickly, but effectively, training new drivers to obtain their Category C or Category C+E licences. To make our business model even more effective in reducing the driver shortage, they included job placement assistance for all students.

All of the drivers who complete our training programme are offered access to an up-to-date jobs database covering opportunities all across the country. Our support staff works with individual drivers to apply for jobs as quickly as possible. And, of course, listing us as your training provider only enhances your job-seeking potential.

We believe that your success as a professional driver directly affects our success as a training company. Consider the fact that we put hundreds of drivers through training every single month. That would not be possible if we were not successful in our training endeavour. And because our drivers are going on to be successful in their careers, they are helping to build our reputation as a leading provider of commercial driver training in the UK.

We are 100% committed to the success of all our students. That commitment is demonstrated every day through:

  • Supportive Instructors – Our instructors are among the best in the business. Not only do they have real-world experience as drivers, but they also provide all of the support and individualised help students need to succeed in their training programmes. Our instructors truly care about the futures of their students.
  • Supportive Staff – The HGV Training Centre also utilises a support staff that is 100% committed to students. Support staff personnel are always available to answer questions, offer guidance relating to different classes, provide help in completing and submitting paperwork, and help book tests on behalf of students.
  • Modern Training Centres – We believe in the importance of training students in a way that prepares them for the real world. Therefore, we offer modern training centres that include late-model equipment. The driver experience our students are exposed to prepares them for what they are likely to encounter in the workplace.
  • Timely Training – Because we train students for their careers, we do not believe in delaying those careers unnecessarily. The primary reason behind our fast-paced training approach is to get students through their training and into the workforce as quickly as possible without compromising quality. We want you working in months rather than years.
  • Affordable Training – The HGV Training Centre continually strives to keep our prices as low as we can. We do so through our size and the way we utilise our resources. We even offer a financing option to new drivers who want to get training now but do not have the cash on hand to pay for it.

In short, we strive to make HGV training in Blaenau Gwent accessible to anyone who wants to take advantage of it. If that’s you, we invite you to contact us at your earliest convenience. We are continually forming new classes to accommodate all of the drivers passing through our training programmes.

Getting Started as an HGV Driver

You can begin HGV training in Blaenau Gwent with the very next class as long as you can pass a routine medical exam and you have a valid Category B licence. When you contact us for more information, we will explain how the training process works so that you will know what you are getting into. If you decide to proceed, we will provide you with two information packs:

  • Medical Pack – This pack contains the medical forms you will need for your exam along with instructions and additional information. It also includes the names and contact information of doctors who provide medical exams at reasonable prices. For the sake of speed, we recommend students use one of these doctors rather than relying on the NHS.
  • Entitlement Pack – New trainees are required to have a provisional entitlement before they can begin training. This pack includes the application form along with instructions to complete it. Our support staff will help you get the paperwork finished and submitted in a timely manner.

All new students also receive a software package that can be used to prepare for the HGV theory test. The software includes genuine test questions from previous exams as well as practice tests that students can take in order to get them ready for the real thing. Anyone wishing to take a preparatory class at our training facility is welcome to do so.

You can become a professional driver with the help of our HGV training in Blaenau Gwent. If you have ever considered being a part of this exciting and rewarding industry, we urge you to take the next step and sign up for training. You will be glad you did.
