You have finally taken the plunge and bought your very own cargo trailer or caravan. Now you cannot wait to get it out on the road at the first available opportunity. But before you can do so, you need to have the right kind of licence. No worries, we can help. We offer comprehensive trailer training that enable drivers to get their licences in the shortest possible time. Get your licence fast by training with the HGV Training Centre.
How fast is fast? That depends on your experience level. We assume most new trailer owners have absolutely no experience of towing trailers on public roads. For them, our five-day course is the best option. In under a week, this course teaches drivers everything they need to know to face the trailer test with confidence.
You might be a trailer owner who has a limited amount of experience towing trailers on private property. As such, you might not need the full five-day course. That is why we offer a three-day course as well. This shorter course of trailer lessons concentrates on strengthening your areas of weakness so that you will perform well at the exam.
Just as a side note, the HGV Training Centre also offers a one-day course for trailer owners who already have their trailer licences. We believe this training is invaluable for keeping your skills sharp and your knowledge base up-to-date. We recommend it at least on an annual basis.
It might seem unreasonable to you that a person can go from being a completely inexperienced driver to a fully licenced trailer owner in just five days. But it actually makes perfect sense when you stop and think about it. To start with, you already have to have a Category B licence before you can begin trailer lessons. That means you have already undergone a certain amount of driver training just to earn your car licence. You already know the basics of driving and driving theory.
With basic car training out of the way, our trailer lessons can focus only on those aspects of driving directly related to towing. We do not need to cover what has already been covered in previous car training. This makes the effectiveness of our fast-paced and intense training approach even better.
Our training methodology is based on the philosophy that people learn more quickly and more effectively when information is presented in short, concentrated bursts. Common sense dictates that this philosophy is the right way to go. If you’re not convinced, just think about how you have learned other things in the past.
When you were young, did your parents put you through a three-month class to learn how to trust yourself? No. They taught you to do it by teaching you one task at a time in short, concentrated segments. You then practiced that task until you perfected it, at which time you were able to move on to the next task. If you are like most people, you learned to dress yourself in a very short amount of time.
The human brain learns best when it is not encumbered with excessive amounts of unnecessary information. That is what our fast-paced training approach is all about. We attack one topic at a time, then build on that topic with the next one in short succession. This training approach makes it easier to learn, understand, and recall information.
The ultimate goal of taking trailer lessons is to learn what needs to be learned in order to pass the trailer test. So it seems that one of the best ways to measure the success of a training company is to look at pass rates. The successful training company will have consistently high pass rates while the unsuccessful company will not. Where does the HGV Training Centre stand? More than 90% of our students, across all of our training programmes, pass their tests the first time.
By way of comparison, the average pass rate for the trailer test across the UK is between 65% and 70%. From these statistics alone it is clear that our fast-paced and intense training approach gets the job done. Our students are able to successfully focus and learn in a relatively short amount of time rather than having to endure month after month of long and cumbersome classes.
Here is something else to consider: the fact that our trailer lessons can be completed so quickly saves you money. Our courses are less expensive, you do not spend additional money on excessive commuting, and you don’t have to lose a lot of time at work just to get your licence. We save you money by working quickly.
We want you to know that the HGV Training Centre does not sacrifice the quality of our training just to get drivers in and out quickly. In fact, it’s quite to the contrary. We are 100% committed to providing quality training that meets and exceeds both regulations and industry best practice. You can see our quality manifested in a number of different ways:
The HGV Training Centre has worked hard to become the largest provider of driver training in the UK. We did not get to where we are today by trading quality for speed. We are consistently one of the most reputable trading companies around because we consistently deliver high-quality training at a very affordable price. This applies as much to our trailer lessons as it does to our professional driver training.
Now that you have that brand-new cargo trailer or caravan, you need the proper licence to tow it. Rest assured that your licence awaits at the other end of trailer lessons taken with the HGV Training Centre. We can help you earn your Category B+E or Category C1 licence in the shortest possible time. Please contact us to learn more about our three- and five-day courses as well as our facility locations and class schedules.
If you need to get your trailer licence but you don’t have the money set aside, we invite you to contact us anyway. We make it possible to finance your trailer lessons through our partnership with Pay 4 Later. There is no reason you cannot get your training now and pay for it over time.
One last note for veteran trailer owners who already have the correct licence: trailer lessons are a good idea for you as well. You do not need a comprehensive five-day course, but our one-day course is the perfect tool to sharpen your skills at the start of every towing season. We hope you will take advantage of our trailer lessons to become a more skilled and safer driver.
The HGV Training Centre trains over 200 people per month. We are the UK’s largest specialist vehicle training company, training for some of the UK’s biggest organisations.
