County Antrim is known for its rugged landscapes and a vast coastline popular with tourists. And like every other area of the UK, the region depends on a robust logistics industry to sustain local economies. Every town and village in the county rely on lorry drivers and their equipment to get consumer goods and commercial supplies into the area. You could be part of this industry by signing up to take HGV training in County Antrim.
Between 70% and 85% of all of the goods transported throughout the UK spend at least some time being transported by lorry. That means without the dedication and hard work of professional HGV drivers, you and I would not enjoy the easy access to affordable consumer goods we now take for granted. The many men and women who drive professionally are an integral part of the economy that we cannot do without.
In light of this, the HGV Training Centre is on a mission to train as many drivers as we can for work in the logistics and transport industries. Offering comprehensive training that prepares new drivers to take their tests is one of the best ways we can contribute toward addressing the ongoing driver shortage. The more drivers we can train and get to testing facilities, the more will earn their licences before going on to be productive members of the workforce.
Training does two important things for new drivers, the first of which is preparing them for testing. Like it or not, testing is the only means the government has at its disposal to make sure a driver possesses the knowledge and skills required for getting a licence. You cannot get a licence if you cannot successfully pass the tests. It is just that simple.
Our HGV training in County Antrim prepares students for the tests by focusing only on that information necessary to pass. Our training can be divided into three main categories, as follows:
All three areas of training are tested to ensure a candidate learns what he or she needs to know. There are four tests that every new driver must take and pass in order to obtain a commercial driving licence. Those tests are:
We make a point of never moving our students into testing until we are confident they are capable of passing. When a student is struggling, our instructors are trained to come alongside and provide the necessary extra help and support.
The second important thing training does for the driver is prepare him or her for a successful career as a professional. As we mentioned previously, the UK is currently in the midst of a very profound driver shortage that only looks to get worse before it gets better. Employers do not have time to spend the first few months of employment training a driver. They need drivers who are ready to go from the moment they are hired.
Our HGV training in County Antrim is the kind of training you need to secure a job as a professional. Not only is our training of the highest quality, but our reputation also speaks for itself in the haulage and transport industries. Employers know that drivers trained by us have what it takes to be the best in the business.
Our reputation is the result of our model for doing business. We have developed our training methods and operational standards with a single focus in mind: producing outstanding drivers that have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform up to employer expectations. To that end, our business and training model centre on the following concepts:
Those who successfully complete our training programme go on to pass their tests the first time at a rate consistently above 90%. With licences in hand, they then embark on the process of finding a job – with our help, of course. The HGV Training Centre provides job placement assistance for every successful student that includes, among other things, access to our up-to-date jobs database.
