Most people in the UK know the Isle of Wight as a tourist destination and the home of some very well-to-do celebrities and government leaders. As such, we do not usually associate England's largest island with a bustling economy requiring heavy doses of commercial traffic. But reality says otherwise. There is enough going on there that we decided to establish HGV training in the Isle of Wight.
Manufacturing on the island is no longer as strong as it used to be, but there's still a solid base for composite manufacturing that supports various aspects of the marine industry. The retail sector on the island is also strong, thanks to tourism still being the number one economic driver of the region. Between the manufacturing, tourism, and retail, there is plenty of truck traffic bringing consumer goods, equipment, and supplies to the island.
As a professional lorry driver, you could have the opportunity to sign on with an employer that provides regular service to the Isle of Wight. You would have the pleasure of travelling to England's most famous island and seeing part of the country most other people will never visit. That is just one of the many perks of getting your commercial driving licence. If you are interested in our HGV training in the Isle of Wight, there is no better time than now to find out more.
Our Isle of Wight training is similar to the HGV training we conduct all over the UK. It is training designed to teach our students those things they need to know to get a Category C or Category D licence. The former is for articulated lorries and other types of cargo and construction vehicles; the latter is for coaches and buses.
All of the new drivers undergoing our HGV training in the Isle of Wight will be after one of four specific licences. We can help you determine which licence you will need based on the kinds of vehicles you hope to drive. Most of our students obtain the Category C licence; it covers articulated lorries, bin lorries, box trucks, and other similar lorries.
Licence categories are determined by the weight and size of the vehicles they are assigned to. As such, the heaviest of lorries and heavy construction equipment may require a Category C+E licence to operate. There is a similar licence for bus and coach drivers, the Category D+E.
If you want to get a good idea of the kind of licence you would need without having to call and speak to one of our training specialists, just take a look at the left side of any page on our website. You will find a licence class chart that offers a visual representation of commercial vehicles and their associated licences. You can also visit the GOV.UK website for complete list of all driving licence categories.
In a perfect world, you could get a commercial driving licence simply by passing a written exam and paying a fee. But the world is anything but perfect. That means you need to undergo training if you hope to get a licence. There are three very important reasons this is so:
In years past, it may have been possible to get a commercial driving licence without formal training. That is no longer the case. The good news is that training does not take a long time. When you register for our HGV training in the Isle of Wight, you will be signing up for a programme that you can complete in a matter of weeks. It's not like you will be signing up for a four-year university programme.
