SpecialisedHGV has the largest network of training centres in the UK.
Our network ensures that 95% of the UK population is never more that one hour away from one of our centres.
The Carmarthenshire region of south-west Wales may be somewhat mountainous and rather rural, but there are professional driving jobs throughout the area available to qualified drivers. Companies across Wales are in need of drivers for articulated lorries, tipper trucks, buses and coaches, and so on. All you need to get one of those jobs is a great work ethic and the appropriate driving licence. We offer HGV driver instruction in Carmarthenshire if you are interested.
It is our belief that the right training is key to a satisfying and productive career as an HGV or PCV driver. Our goal is to always provide that training to our students. Since our company was founded, the HGV Training Centre has had but one desire: successfully train as many drivers as possible in order to get them working quickly. Our success as a training provider is evidenced by the tremendous growth we have enjoyed over the years.
In addition to our HGV driver instruction in Carmarthenshire, we offer training classes at more than four dozen facilities throughout Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We are an industry leader and the largest provider of commercial driver training in the UK.
Our name might suggest to you that we only teach students to drive HGVs. Actually, that is not the case. We chose our name only because of the fact that HGVs are most often associated with commercial driving. But we are not limited to just this kind of training. We also train drivers to operate:
We focus mainly on HGV and PCV drivers as they are the ones most in need of professional training. But we can meet virtually any driver training need you might have. Furthermore, we offer services to both individual drivers and corporate clients. We can train anywhere from one driver to 100, according to each one’s unique specifications.
We are especially proud of the fact that we are the largest provider of HGV instruction to individual drivers. But we are aggressively working to expand our commercial operations as well. We want to be the one-stop shop for all individual and commercial driver training in the country.
Preparing You to Get Your Licence
At this point, you might be wondering what our HGV driver instruction in Carmarthenshire is all about. In short, it is about preparing you to get your licence so that you can drive professionally. You cannot get your licence without at least a minimal amount of training necessary to cover the Driver CPC requirements instituted in 2008. But we go well beyond those requirements. We train our students to pass all four tests included in the CPC programme.
You might also think that you so not have what it takes to be a professional HGV driver. That’s normal. Many of our students are not as confident when they start our courses as they are when they finish. But instilling confidence is another one of the things we do at the HGV Training Centre. We impart classroom knowledge in such a way as to ensure you learn it, understand it, and are able to recall it at examination time. You will approach each of your tests with plenty of confidence.
As far as actual driving skills are concerned, we take the time to work with each student to make sure he or she is ready to prove to examiners the proper ability to drive safely in real-world conditions. We utilise late-model vehicles that our students are likely to encounter in the real world, giving them plenty of time to practice things such as controlled stops, reverse manoeuvres, and proper braking and accelerating.
If you are a bit worried that driving an HGV is too complicated, we encourage you to contact us anyway. Let us explain to you how we do things and see if we can answer your questions and alleviate some of your fears. Driving an HGV is easier today than it has ever been thanks to new equipment that makes these large vehicles easy to handle even for completely inexperienced drivers.
All of our training programmes, including our HGV training in Carmarthenshire, focuses on teaching you only what you need to learn to pass your tests and be a safe and productive driver. We do not waste your time putting you through classes that take months to complete. In fact, we can finish your training and have you prepared to take your final tests in just a few weeks. How do we do this? By implementing a focused and fast-paced training approach.
When a parent is training a child to do something like dress himself, how does that process work? Does the parent put the child through a three-month class requiring him to sit and listen to lectures for four hours a day? No. The parent teaches the child one task at a time and then gives him the opportunity to practice that task. When one task is mastered, they move to the next.
This building block teaching method is how people naturally learn. It is the method we utilise, except that we go a bit faster than the parent does teaching a child to get dressed. We teach information in short and concentrated bursts, giving students an opportunity to apply that knowledge, and then move on to the next concept right away. This enables our students to learn and retain in a short amount of time.
We have given you a broad overview of our HGV driver instruction in Carmarthenshire. If you are ready to get started, you need only contact us on our freephone number or send us a message through the website. The entire training process is rather simple in structure. It begins with a routine medical exam and application for a provisional entitlement.
The medical exam is to be conducted by any GP, whether private or NHS. In order to make sure our students are not bogged down by NHS waiting times, we provide them with the names and phone numbers of private doctors throughout the UK offering medical exams at very reasonable prices. We also provide all of the paperwork.
Once the medical exam is complete and you have applied for your provisional entitlement, the next step in the process is to prepare for the HGV theory exam. This two-part exam is your ticket to begin practical skills training. Once you pass that exam, you are ready to sit in our classroom for your driver skills training. You will spend the next several weeks learning book knowledge and practicing behind the wheel of a late-model vehicle. Only when you and we know you are prepared for your final exam will you actually take it.
Rest assured that all instructors know that individual students learn at their own pace. If you seem to be struggling with a particular concept or module, one of our instructors will come alongside and provide all of the extra help and support you need to get through it. We will never push you into a test if you are not confident you can pass.
And just for the record, the HGV Training Centre boasts a 92% first-time pass rate for the theory test. Across all of our training programmes, our drivers pass their tests the first time at a rate of 90% or better. The average LGV pass rate across the entire UK is closer to 55%. Those numbers alone demonstrate that our training approach works.
Our HGV instruction in Carmarthenshire can prepare you to be a safe and proficient HGV driver ready to enjoy a safe and productive career. If you are ready to take charge of your life and enter a career field with good pay, stability, and lots of adventure, please contact us right away.
