Specialised HGV Training takes care of the entire training & recruitment process so you don’t have to. We are not only UK's but also the best-rated HGV training provider in Glasgow.

When we first started, we focussed on delivering practical LGV/HGV training in Glasgow to a very high standard. One of the biggest gripes our customers had was having to source materials and book each element of the training process before reaching the practical stage. For this reason, we started putting training packages together with the best learning materials available and set up a bookings department that can take care of the entire training process, booking each element of training as and when required. This means that all you need to do is focus on learning! – our training packages include everything you need to be a commercial driver and can be tailored to fit your needs. Our ideal package contains Medical, online theory training & test, practical training & driver CPC. If you have already got your provisional we can also tailor the rest of the course as per your needs.

Training for Your Career

Our HGV training in Glasgow is not just training for a job you may or may not keep for any length of time. It is training for your career. Whether you know it or not, there are hundreds of thousands of professional drivers who have made what they do a lifelong career full of opportunity and reward. Most of the professional drivers who have been at it for more than a few years would not do anything else. They love their careers and everything about them.

That’s not to say that professional driving is a perfect job. It isn’t. But there is no such thing as a perfect job or career. You do what you love to do and deal with any challenges as they come. If you do what you do well, you will enjoy a productive career that allows you to meet your financial and personal development goals.

With all that said, there are excellent reasons for you to consider embarking on a career as a professional driver:

  • Competitive Pay – New drivers can start at £22,000-£26,000 annually; experienced drivers with additional training can earn £40,000 or more.
  • Advancement Opportunities – New drivers do not have to remain behind the wheel for their entire careers if they don’t want to. Drivers can transition into other careers that include fleet management, dispatching, driver training, and executive business judgement.
  • Opportunities to Travel – One of the best ‘perks’ of professional driving is the opportunity to travel. If you love to be out on the road, why not earn a good living while doing it? Drivers get to see a full array of scenery along with urban and rural areas non-professionals will never visit.
  • Self-Direction – The nature of professional driving requires workers who are capable of self-direction. Drivers do not have managers constantly looking over the shoulders; they are not following a set of rote procedures that lead to monotony and boredom. If nothing else, professional driving is a career filled with challenge and adventure.

Why train for a job when you can train for a career instead? That is what our HGV training in Glasgow offers you. With just a few weeks of your time and minimal financial investment, you can embark on an exciting career that more than meets your expectations.

What Makes Us Different

HGV training in Glasgow is not limited to the Specialised HGV Training Centre. So why choose us? What makes us different from our competitors? A lot of things make us different, starting with the size of our operations.

As we previously mentioned, the Specialised HGV Training Centre is now the largest provider of commercial driver training in the UK. Not only do we operate more than four dozen facilities but we also train for every class of commercial vehicle on the road. It matters not whether you want to drive an articulated lorry, coach, or van – we have the right kind of training programme that will enable you to get your licence in a matter of weeks. That brings us to our second point: training with us is fast.

Some professional training programmes require students to commit to studies that can take months or years. We don’t do that. We realise that you already have a car licence and that you have a certain amount of experience as a driver. Our training is designed to enhance that experience and knowledge by adapting it to large commercial vehicles. We can have you through training and ready to take your final exams within a matter of weeks.

Here are a few other things that make us different:

  • Our Instructors – We search the UK to find instructors who have real-world experience as professional drivers. We believe there is no better person to train our students than someone who has actually done the job in the real world. We like to believe our structures are among the best around.
  • Our Support Staff – We maintain a complete support staff for all of our training facilities. That support staff is tasked with assisting each student through the entire training process. Staff members are available to answer questions, offer advice, and provide assistance with administrative tasks, including paperwork and booking tests.
  • Our Training Materials – We provide our students with the necessary training materials to complete classes. This includes software that enables them to prepare for the HGV theory test. The software offers practice tests as well as real questions from past exams.
  • Our Training Vehicles – Some training companies save money by purchasing older vehicles for training purposes. We do not. All of our training vehicles are late-model vehicles typical of what the professional driver will experience in the workplace.
  • Our Price – We strive to keep the price of our training as low as possible at all times. We do this through our size and the way we manage our resources. For those students who need it, we also offer a financing package through our financing partner Duologi. Students can finance their training now and pay for it over time.

Recruitment is an area where most newly qualified drivers struggle. A lot of employers ask for a minimum of 2 year’s experience in order to be considered, and this creates a catch 22 because how do you get experience if nobody will give you a job as soon as you pass? – We realised that a lot of our customers experienced the same issue so we developed a recruitment team in order to help our newly qualified drivers get a job. We have also teamed up with some of the largest recruitment agencies in the sector to give you the best possible chance of being employed upon passing your tests – call us now to find out about the latest job opportunities.
