A trailer licence is required by most people who want to tow a cargo trailer, caravan, or horsebox trailer in the UK. Fortunately for trailer owners, passing the trailer test is not difficult with a little bit of training. Once you learn the basics of proper driving techniques, it is a matter of getting enough practice to prove to a tester that you have the skill and knowledge to tow trailers safely.
Here at the HGV Training Centre, we offer customers a fast and easy way to get the trailer licence they need. We offer both three- and five-day training courses that will provide the knowledge you need and the necessary practice to pass your trailer test. Best of all, our trailer courses or very affordable for any budget.
If you own any kind of trailer, we encourage you to contact us and inquire about our training courses. Please do not take your trailer or caravan out on public roads without first being properly licenced. Far too many trailer owners do just that, only learning after the fact that they did not have the necessary licence for trailer towing.
There is no shortage of training companies in the UK that can help you get your trailer licence. So why train with us? Because we do not waste your time or money by putting you through a training programme that takes longer than it should. Our goal is to get you on the road as quickly as humanly possible. We offer three different trailer course options:
As you can see, undergoing training to get your trailer licence does not have to be a long and cumbersome process. There is no need to train for months just to pass the trailer test. If you can apply yourself and learn, you can be ready to go in no more than five days. Of course, you can take longer if you are not comfortable with taking the trailer test after a five-day course. We will work with you as long as is necessary to ensure you are comfortable and confident.
You already know that our training process is fast as evidenced by the fact that a comprehensive course only takes five days to complete. But our training is also effective. How do we know? Because our first-time pass rate across all of our training programs is consistently above 90%. Although statistics about the trailer test are hard to come by, the first-time pass rate throughout the UK during the 2011/2012 calendar year was reported by Farmer’s Weekly at 64.5%.
How do we succeed at such a higher rate? By utilising a fast-paced and intense training approach that focuses only on what you need to know to pass your test. We do not spend time dealing with extemporaneous knowledge or skills that have nothing to do with what the examiner will be looking for at testing time.
Also, we present information in short bursts or, if you prefer, bite-size chunks. We have discovered through our commercial driver training that this is the best way to impart a large body of knowledge without sacrificing comprehension, retention, and recall. It makes perfect sense when you think about it.
When we teach kids to do certain tasks, how do they learn best? It is not by way of long lectures and individual training sessions that take weeks to complete. No, children learn best when information is presented in short bursts followed by applying that information through practice. It turns out that adults learn this way as well. We focus intensely on one topic at a time, allow students to master that topic, and then build on that topic by moving on to the next one.
The HGV Training Centre is one of the largest and most reputable training companies in the UK for both professional and non-professional drivers. Yet despite our size, our learning facilities do not have an institutional feel to them. Instead, we work hard to create an environment that is conducive to learning without sacrificing the comfort of our students. We want each of our clients to feel completely comfortable and fully at ease throughout the training process.
We believe an important part of a conducive learning environment is the presence of attentive instructors. To that end, we hire only experienced instructors who have spent time doing what they will be instructing others to do. That means the instructor who teaches you how to tow a trailer has done so him/herself. He or she may even own a trailer or caravan that he or she takes out on the road regularly.
Our instructors are trained to be attentive to their students throughout the process. By being attuned to what students are going through, our instructors are able to identify struggles before they become major problems. They then offer the extra help and support that students need to overcome those struggles. Instructors are always available to answer questions, explain difficult concepts, and give valuable tips on improving driving skills.
Lastly, a conducive learning environment requires a strong support staff more than capable of assisting students as they go through the training process. We are proud to employ such a staff. From administrative specialists to guidance staff, our support personnel make sure all of the little details are handled so that our students can concentrate their energies on learning.
Any time is a good time to sign up for a trailer towing class. The sooner you complete your training, the sooner you will have the trailer licence you need to tow legally. So why wait? We operate more than four dozen training facilities with regularly scheduled trailer classes. By contacting us right away, we can get you into the next class scheduled for your local area. We make training convenient and easy to schedule.
The HGV Training Centre also offers a financing option on every course in our catalogue. Even if you do not have the cash to pay for your training upfront, we can finance your courses to make them easier to pay for over time. Be sure to ask about financing when you contact us. It is just another way we make obtaining a trailer licence fast and easy.
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.
