The Ceredigion region of West Wales is a lovely area with considerable coastline, a robust tourist industry, and plenty of wide open spaces. But even in this part of the world, nothing is free. The men and women who live in Ceredigion have to earn a living and provide for their families. One way to do that is to obtain an HGV or PCV licence and go to work as a professional driver. To that end, we offer PCV and HGV training in Ceredigion.
You may have heard that professional driving is a career only for those people who cannot do anything else. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, just the opposite is true. Professional driving is a challenging career that requires a very particular skill set and body of knowledge. Not everyone can drive professionally and do so safely and efficiently.
Professional drivers undergo several weeks of training to prepare them to take the necessary tests required to obtain a licence. But contrary to common misconceptions, training does not stop there. New drivers undergo extensive on-the-job training once employment commences as well as additional remedial training throughout their careers. And thanks to new Driver CPC regulations implemented over the last few years, all professional drivers must take 35 hours of CPC training at least once every five years.
If you think you have what it takes to be a good professional driver, we hope you will consider our HGV training in Ceredigion. The HGV Training Centre is the largest provider of commercial driver training in the UK, and arguably the most reputable. Companies who hire our students know that these students have been trained to the highest standards.
Driving professionally is a great career option with lots to offer both new and veteran drivers. You could undergo our HGV training in Ceredigion and then go to work as a company driver or independent contractor. It is entirely up to you. You can choose from among long-haul, regional, and local jobs, depending on how much you want to earn in relation to the amount of time you are willing to spend away from home. And, of course, there is room for advancement.
If our description of professional driving has not convinced you, here are five reasons to consider becoming a professional HGV or PCV driver:
As a young person just starting out, you will eventually have to make a decision about what you want to do with the rest of your life. No, professional driving is not for everyone. But it is at least worth your consideration if you are the kind of person who does not want to work in an office for the next 40 years. You might also consider our HGV training in Ceredigion if you want to get to work in a matter of months rather than spending three or four years at university.
Perhaps you are an older person who has found yourself in a redundancy situation. Or perhaps you are just tired of your current career and looking for something new. In either case, professional driving is an excellent opportunity for you as well. You are never too old for our HGV training in Ceredigion. As long as you possess a valid car licence, we can train you to drive large commercial vehicles.
There are minimum requirements for all drivers hoping to obtain a commercial driving licence. First of all, you must be at least 18 years of age. Second, you must already possess a valid Category B licence to begin training. And third, you must be in reasonably good health. All new drivers must undergo a standard medical exam to make sure they suffer from no medical conditions that could make them unsafe drivers.
All of the new drivers who go through our HGV training in Ceredigion receive an information package that includes the necessary medical paperwork and contact information from private doctors around the UK offering medical exams. We recommend utilising a private doctor rather than going through the NHS in order to avoid wait times. A private medical is very affordable in most cases.
We also provide new students with an information and application package for the required provisional entitlement. This entitlement is needed before you can begin your training as a commercial driver. There is no test involved in getting the entitlement, but you need the entitlement and a completed medical exam before you can sit for the HGV theory test.
