COURSE IN Pembrokeshire

The economy in Pembrokeshire relies heavily on three major industries: agriculture, energy, and tourism. The agricultural sector is known for potatoes, barley and wheat while much of the coastline is divided between tourism and oil and gas operations. The one thing all three sectors have in common is their need for reliable transport.

Every day, hundreds of lorries make their way through Pembrokeshire, some bringing freight in and others taking it out. If it were not for those lorries and the hard-working men and women who drive them, it would not be possible to sustain the local economy. It turns out that haulage and transport are the foundations of what makes things work in the UK.

If you have ever wanted to work in a field that is so vital to everything we do, logistics may be what you are looking for. Drivers make up a good portion of the logistics field, operating everything from articulated lorries to box trucks to heavy construction equipment. If this sounds interesting to you as a job path, you will need a commercial driving licence in order to embark on your career.

The HGV Training Centre offers fast, convenient, and affordable HGV training in Pembrokeshire. Our local facility is part of a much broader operation that consists of more than four dozen driving centres all over the UK. We train hundreds of new drivers every month, helping them obtain their licences so they can start their new careers.

How to Get Your Licence

Most of the drivers we train are looking to get either a Category C or D licence for HGV or PCV vehicles respectively. However, we are not limited to just those two. We can train for virtually any kind of commercial licence. We even offer forklift training and certification and training for non-professionals who want to tow trailers.

Getting your commercial driving licence starts by contacting us to inquire about our HGV training in Pembrokeshire. Upon registration, we will get things started by providing two packages of information. The first package relates to the HGV medical exam; an exam every new driver must undergo before the commencement of training. You don’t have to be in perfect health to be an HGV driver, but your health does need to be reasonably good.

The information packet we provide contains the medical paperwork your doctor will complete and submit to the DVLA, along with the names and contact information of doctors offering exams at affordable prices. As for the second information packet, it pertains to the HGV provisional entitlement.

You will need to get a provisional entitlement in order to start your training. We will assist you in completing the paperwork and submitting it in a timely fashion, after which you can begin preparing to take the HGV theory test. Bear in mind that it could take several weeks to receive your provisional entitlement in the post; you could receive it in as little as 7 to 10 business days.

Having passed a medical exam and obtained your provisional entitlement, the remainder of the training process is as follows:

  • Theory Test – All future commercial drivers are required to pass a series of four tests mandated by CPC requirements. The first of the four is the theory test. We encourage our drivers to begin preparing for this test while they wait for the provisional entitlements to arrive. We offer free software that includes practice tests and real test questions taken from old exams. You can prepare by yourself, take a class at our training centre, or do both.
  • Practical Skills Training – A passing grade on the theory test allows you to advance to practical skills training. This training takes just a few weeks to complete for most students. Training is conducted both in the classroom and behind the wheel, imparting the knowledge and skills drivers need to pass the remaining tests.
  • Final Testing – Along the way you will be booked to take the case studies test. At the conclusion of your practical skills training, you will have two final tests to take and pass: the driving skills and practical demonstration tests. Passing these final two exams means you have successfully earned your commercial driving licence. You can immediately start looking for work.

Most students who learn relatively quickly and apply themselves can complete our training in less than a month. The entire process, from start to finish, takes less than two months. Imagine that. Where going to university to get your degree could take 2 to 4 years, you can complete HGV training in Pembrokeshire in a fraction of the time. While everyone else is still in school, you will be earning a salary and enjoying a job you love.

How We Do It

It is not unusual for new students to ask how we manage to complete HGV training in Pembrokeshire in such a short amount of time without compromising the quality of our training. First, it is not easy. Second, it’s also not an accident. We are able to train our students relatively quickly because we have taken the time to develop a very specific training methodology that is incredibly efficient and effective.

This training methodology is based on the principle of taking advantage of short-term memory in order to successfully pass the required exams. Understand that the four tests in the Driver CPC regimen are the only tools government examiners have to measure whether a driver possesses the skills and knowledge to be a safe HGV driver. And because how you test determines whether or not you will get your licence, our primary objective is to train you in a way that prepares you to test successfully.

We take advantage of short-term memory by presenting information quickly, but in very short bursts. In other words, our classes are not arduously long. We don’t attempt to present students with an overwhelming amount of information – much of it being information they do not need – hoping that they will retain just enough to pass their tests. Rather, we focus only on what you need to learn to pass. We then present that information in short, concentrated bursts that successfully build one concept upon another.

Our training approach is not that unusual when you stop and think about. In fact, the way we train our students is the way most people learn naturally. They take in information in bite-sized chunks, master that information, and then move on to the next topic. It is how we learn to do everything from dressing ourselves to basic maths.

Your Career Awaits

There are companies in your local area who are, right now, desperately searching for licenced drivers to operate their vehicles. The haulage and transport industries are currently short tens of thousands of licenced drivers; that shortage is expected to get worse before it gets better. We can sum it up in three simple words: your career awaits.

A willingness to work hard and possession of a commercial driving licence opens the door to a long and successful career as a professional driver. You’ll never have to worry about being out of work if you do what is expected of you. On top of that, you will enjoy competitive pay, opportunities for advancement, and a work environment that does not confine you to the office or warehouse for the next 40 years.

Our HGV training in Pembrokeshire has plenty of space for new students. If you are interested in being part of the next class, contact us right away. We will get you registered and get you set up with your initial paperwork and theory test software.
