Cheapest HGV Lessons in Leicestershire

Receptive Learning

We teach thousands of students every year how to pass their HGV licensing exams, but we know we can learn more as well. It is a two-way street; we teach people how to drive and they teach us how we can improve our service. It has led to a number of new changes coming in. Read on to find out more about the enhancements to HGV training in Leicestershire that came as a direct result of client and instructor input.

Crash Courses

Perhaps the biggest change that came about because of the feedback we received is the introduction of crash courses. These replace the longer programmes with a week of intensive study. It enables students to pass their exams faster, whilst also meaning they get onto their next career path as soon as possible.

Lorry in Leicestershire as part of the HGv training

Primarily, the main complaint was the longer courses cost too much money. We understand this, as we had no choice but to offer higher prices in order to cover the general running costs. Not willing to accept things as they were, we simply cut all the unnecessary parts of the course and reincarnated it as a new more powerful course. Now learners get the same high standards at half the price.

Malleable Learning Experiences

The latest research from our students pointed out how many people were not responding to specific learning techniques because people learn differently. We looked further into this and decided the right thing to do would be to offer a more flexible package. To this day, we put the control into the hands of our instructors. We simply give them the necessary content and tell them to go through it as they see fit. It means our team of experts can customise their style to suit the student. It is a marvellous way of enhancing the overall experience and making sure no client is left behind.

In addition to offering a more flexible approach, we allocated more private tuition to each student. Instructors can bond with their students and use this professional relationship to achieve bigger and better things. This is what makes our brand of HGV training in Leicestershire that much more potent.

High Prices

Employer specifically came to us about this issue when many were realising no learning provider in the area could offer them a good deal. Now everything we do takes into account price cuts and keeping the level of the course at an all-time high. Some of the things we have done to reduce costs include:

  • Implementing crash courses
  • Cutting unnecessary learning materials
  • General price cuts to keep us ahead of the game

Vehicle Type Verses Licence Class
HGV / LGV Cat 'C+E' (Class 1)

Any vehicle over 7.5t that has a detachable or separate trailer, Cat 'C+E' licences can only be applied for once the driver has taken and passed their Cat 'C'. These are larger vehicles so tend to be used for long haul, national and international routes. Starting salaries are around £28,000 per year.

HGV / LGV Cat 'C' (Class 2)

For vehicles in a rigid-based body that is over 7.5t – examples include fire engines, rubbish collection vehicles and any HGV, providing the vehicle is all one unit (i.e. the cab does not separate from the trailer). Usually operated in towns and cities, starting salaries for Cat 'C' drivers are around £24,000 per year

Cat C1

For use if driving any goods vehicle that is above 3.5t and below 7.5t in weight. If you gained your driving licence before 1997, you will automatically have this category on your licence. If you gained your driving licence after 1997, you will have to take a test. Note – if you gain your Cat 'C' you automatically get given your Cat 'C1', so it is advisable to take a full Cat 'C' course and get both categories for the price of one. C1 vehicle examples include: horseboxes, ambulances, Occado delivery vehicles etc. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat C1+E

Same as above, but gives you the capacity to tow a trailer behind your C1 vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat B+E

This enables you to tow an item behind a standard car. Again, if you passed before 1997 you do not need to pass a test to tow a trailer behind a car – if you passed after 1997, a full course and driving test is required. Course can be completed in 3x days.

Cat D

This is a full bus / coach licence, enabling you to drive any sized Passenger Carrying Vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat D1

Enables you to drive a minibus of 9-16 seats maximum. If you passed your driving test before 1997 this category will already be on your licence, if you passed after that date a full course and test is required. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Fork Lift

The licences depend on what vehicle is used and the type of environment it is used in. 1-day refresher courses: for experienced operators with lapsed licences 3-day mini courses: for experienced operators who have not received formal training 5-day full courses: for novices who have not received any training and have no experience. All courses begin with classroom time where you will learn the theoretical requirements of the vehicle they are being trained on. Includes all relevant aspects of health and safety and short multiple-choice Theory Test. Practical training begins with an explanation as to the operation of the relevant truck. Practical elements cover daily vehicle checks and safe loading techniques – you will then practice the operation of the vehicle until they become proficient, whereby a short practical test will take place.
