COURSE IN Buckinghamshire

The Buckinghamshire region of south-east England is served by no fewer than four motorways and five A roads that keep traffic moving in all directions. On any given day, you will see HGVs and PCVs transporting cargo and passengers from one destination to the next. As a home county, Buckinghamshire certainly has no shortage of traffic on all of its major arteries.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to get behind the wheel of a large commercial vehicle like an articulated lorry or coach? It takes good health, proper training, and a Category C or D licence. Our PCV and HGV training in Buckinghamshire can help you get that licence you need to become a professional. We train hundreds of drivers every month at dozens of centres located in and around every major metropolitan area in the UK.

We train drivers to operate:

  • articulated lorries
  • bin lorries and tipper trucks
  • box trucks and vans
  • city buses and coaches
  • minibuses
  • horseboxes and horsebox trailers
  • ambulances
  • forklift trucks.

We offer a full range of driver training courses with the goal of training as many professional drivers as we can. We do what we do out of a desire to help address the ongoing driver shortage that companies in the haulage and transport industries continue to face. The only way to properly address the shortage is to get more drivers into the industry as quickly as possible. One of those drivers could be you if you sign up for our HGV training in Buckinghamshire.

Drivers practical training in Buckinghamshire

The Knowledge and Skills You Need

You might be wondering what is involved with HGV training in the UK. In simple terms, training involves obtaining all the knowledge and skills you need to drive safely and proficiently. New drivers are tested on their knowledge and skills before being awarded a commercial driving licence.

There are four different tests that drivers must take and pass in order to go to work as professionals. Those tests are:

  • Theory Test – The theory test is a two-part test involving 100 multiple-choice questions and a series of videos designed to test hazard perception. Drivers must score 85 on the first part and 67 on the second in order to pass. Both parts must be passed within a two-year period to remain valid.
  • Case Studies – This test presents candidates with seven different scenarios involving things that are commonly encountered in the workplace. Each case study is accompanied by a series of questions. In order to pass, candidates must answer 40 out of the 50 questions correctly.
  • Driving Skills – Demonstrating one’s driving skills is necessary to obtain a commercial driving licence. This test is administered at the conclusion of your training, in two parts. The first part involves driving on public roads while the second part consists of solo driving on a closed course at the testing facility.
  • Practical Demonstration – The final test is one of practical demonstration. It consists of a number of questions relating to topics taken from the Driver CPC syllabus. Candidates must answer the questions through a combination of oral explanation and physical demonstration.

Our HGV training in Buckinghamshire covers all four areas thoroughly and comprehensively. By the time students complete their training with us, they not only possess the knowledge and skills needed to pass, but they also possess the confidence needed to do so convincingly. For the record, more than 90% of our students pass all of the tests the first time they are taken. The numbers prove that our training works.

Training Does Not Take Long

Students inquiring about our HGV training in Buckinghamshire frequently ask us how long the programme takes. We are happy to be able to tell them it does not take long at all. A driver who learns quickly and is able to apply him or herself can usually complete our training in a matter of a few weeks. However, we do understand that people learn at different paces. Therefore, we do not push individuals to train faster than they can manage. The driver who needs a few extra weeks is welcome to them.

We work as quickly as we do for one very good reason: we do not see the need for delaying the start of your career by putting you through long and cumbersome courses that are completely unnecessary. Keep in mind that every HGV and PCV job is different. For example, hauling agricultural products in a refrigerated trailer is quite different from hauling manufacturing equipment on the back of a flatbed. These differences are things that can be learned through on-the-job training; they don’t have to be tackled in our training in any depth.

We base our training on the primary concepts and skills that every commercial driver needs to learn to be successful. We present our training in a way that is focused and concentrated so as to maximise time spent in the classroom and behind the wheel. When you sign up for our HGV training in Buckinghamshire, rest assured you will not still be working on getting your licence a year from now. A few weeks is all you need if you are capable of learning quickly.

 

Individualised Help and Support

Over the years, the HGV Training Centre has built a reputation for being one of the best training providers in the UK. Part of what makes us who we are is the individualised help and support we offer to each student. You are not just a number to us; you are a person capable of doing great things in both your personal life and your career. We want to help you make the most of your career.

We scour the UK in search of the best and most experienced instructors available. To that end, we are very choosy about who we hire to train our students. You can have confidence in knowing that your instructors have real world experience as a professional driver themselves, and they are more than capable of imparting to you the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout their careers.

We further enhance the training experience by offering a dedicated support and administrative staff that works with students throughout every step of the process. Our support staff can provide guidance about the courses you are taking, answer almost any question you might have, and generally navigate you through your training. They also assist with administrative tasks such as submitting paperwork and booking tests.

Should you find yourself struggling at any point during training, you need only ask for help. But also know that our instructors are trained to keep an eye on students for any signs of struggle. Those students who do have difficulty receive additional help and support from instructors to keep them on pace. Our ultimate goal is to make sure each student is adequately prepared to take the next round of tests with confidence.
