COURSE IN Renfrewshire

If you live in Renfrewshire, you are aware that the region supports one of the busiest and most congested transport infrastructures in the UK. The council area is considered part of the greater Glasgow area; it is also home to Scotland’s second busiest airport in Glasgow International. With all of the activity comes the need for a reliable and flexible logistics system comprised of freight forwarders, transport agents, and the men and women who drive commercial vehicles.

On any given day, the M8 motorway is a vital artery that carries commercial vehicles in and out of Renfrewshire. Behind the wheel of each one of those vehicles is a licenced driver who works hard in his or her capacity as a professional. Some of those drivers have even been trained by way of our HGV training in Renfrewshire.

The HGV Training Centre is the largest provider of cheap commercial driver training in Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Our training centre in Renfrewshire is just one of more than four dozen schools we operate nationwide. Those who complete our Renfrewshire training programme become part of a large and impressive team of drivers who make the economy work every single day.

Are you interested in HGV training in Renfrewshire? If so, our training can prepare you to drive:

  • articulated lorries
  • box trucks and cargo vans
  • bin lorries and tipper trucks
  • heavy construction equipment
  • coaches, buses, and minibuses
  • ambulances and other speciality vehicles.

Our training programmes are so complete that we even offer forklift driver certification and training for non-professionals who tow utility trailers, horsebox trailers, and caravans. Suffice to say that we can train you to drive just about any vehicle used for commercial transport.

Training to Get You Started

Almost every driver who possesses a commercial driving licence began his or her journey with some sort of training. Of course, older drivers who obtained their licences before the end of the last century may have undergone less training than is required today, yet train they did.

New trucks ready for HGV driving students

New regulations today make training far more extensive and comprehensive than it ever was. That is a good thing by most measurements. Drivers who successfully complete our cheap HGV training in Renfrewshire go on to be safe and proficient professionals who both follow the law and do right by their employers.

Obtaining your commercial driving licence starts by calling us and registering for our HGV training in Renfrewshire. One of the first things we will do upon completing your registration is provide you with the following:

  • Medical Paperwork – Every new professional driver must undergo a routine medical exam in order to get a licence. We provide the medical paperwork, along with the names and contact information of doctors who provide the exams at a reasonable price.
  • Entitlement Paperwork – Every future professional also needs a provisional entitlement in order to undergo training. We provide the entitlement paperwork along with instructions and, if necessary, personal assistance in completing and submitting the paperwork.
  • Software – We provide all of our new students with an advanced software package to help prepare them for the HGV theory test. The software contains questions taken from past exams as well as a number of practice tests that students can use to become familiar with the testing process.

It usually takes between seven and ten business days to receive a provisional entitlement in the post. However, it can take up to several weeks depending on how busy the DVLA is. In the interim, we encourage our students to prepare for the theory test by studying and practicing. We offer preparation classes for those who want them.

Students must score an 85 on the first part of the theory test and a 67 on the second part to pass. A passing grade on both parts enables students to progress through practical skills training.

Training Doesn’t Take Long

We want you to know that our HGV training in Renfrewshire does not take long to complete. Most of our students can finish their training in a matter of weeks, provided they learn quickly and pass their tests on the first try. But no worries. The HGV Training Centre is proud to say that our first-time pass rate is consistently above 90%.

In less time than it takes to complete just one semester of university, you can complete cheap HGV training and have your licence in hand. That licence is your ticket to a career that offers competitive pay, the chance to be out and about, opportunities for advancement, and so much more. Why spend 2-to-4 years in school when you can be done with training and ready to start working in weeks?

Training throughout Your Career

The HGV Training Centre has a strong reputation within the industry for the quality of our training. That quality goes well beyond just the initial training you might need to get your Category C or D licence. It extends to the ongoing training professional drivers need under the CPC requirements.

Driver CPC rules dictate that every professional driver maintains a valid CPC qualification card in order to continue working. New drivers get their initial cards upon completion of their training. Those cards are good for five calendar years from the date they are obtained, meaning the driver that received his/her first card in 2015 would need to renew it sometime in 2020.

How is the qualification card renewed? By undergoing an additional 35 hours of CPC training through a company like ours. Knowing this, it should now be evident why we strive to provide quality training throughout a driver’s career. We are not content just to help you get your licence; we want to be available to provide all of the training you will ever need.

A Name You Can Trust

It is true that you have multiple choices for HGV training in Renfrewshire. However, we believe the HGV Training Centre is your best choice. Our name a name you can trust, as evidenced by our higher than average first-time pass rate, our reputation for quality, our low prices, and even our professional affiliations.

The HGV Training Centre is a member of the Freight Transporter Association, one of the leading voices in the logistics industry in the UK. We are also members in good standing of the Logistics Guild. Membership in both of these organisations requires us to meet a set of standards that virtually guarantees we can be trusted for your training.

A Price You Can Afford

If you are looking for a fast-paced and intense training programme that is also affordable, we are your best choice. Throughout this guide, we have referenced our HGV training in Renfrewshire as being ‘cheap’ driver training, but not because our quality is questionable. It is because we keep our prices as low as possible in order to make training affordable for the largest number of students.

The fact that we operate more than four dozen training centres allows us to employ the economics of scale in order to keep our prices low. In other words, volume makes it cheaper for us to do business. The money we save in overhead costs can be passed on to our students by way of prices. We also keep our training short and sweet so as not to force students to pay for training they don’t need.

We are your source for affordable HGV training in Renfrewshire. If you are interested in a career as a professional driver, we urge you to contact us right away – even if you do not have the cash to cover training costs. We can still help by way of our financing package; be sure to ask about it when you contact us.
