COURSE IN Glamorgan

From the agricultural lands of the Vale of Glamorgan to the southern coastline that makes the region a popular tourist attraction, Glamorgan is a lovely place for a drive. Imagine having a job that would enable you to see this beautiful part of Wales on a daily basis. Those jobs exist for lorry and bus drivers whose routes take them in, through, and around Glamorgan.

As a leading provider of HGV training in Glamorgan, we operate a facility in the area as well. Students at our school have an opportunity to train with one of the best companies in the business while also being able to enjoy some incredible scenery at the same time. And that scenery is just one of the things that make professional driving such an excellent career choice. Drivers get to see things others do not normally get to see; they get to go places that other people will never visit.

Training in Glamorgan in this nice HGV cab

Are you considering a career as a professional driver? If so, you will need to earn a commercial driving licence. We offer Category C and C+E training for people interested in learning to drive lorries and heavy construction equipment. Our students interested in becoming bus and coach drivers are trained for either the Category D or D+E licence. We can help you figure out which one you need based on the kinds of vehicles you want to drive.

What Our Training Covers

We do not expect you to sign up for HGV training in Glamorgan without first knowing what our training covers. In the simplest terms possible, we train our students in preparation for passing a series of four tests that are required in order to get one’s licence. Tests are the only means by which the government has to determine whether or not a driver is capable and qualified to hold a commercial driving licence. Since tests are the means of measurement, we believe it is important our students more than measure up. Therefore, we train with the primary goal of making sure all of our students pass.

All of the information and skills we pass on to students relates to one of the following four tests:

  • Theory Test – The theory test is the first one in the series; it must be passed before the student can go on to practical skills training. It is a two-part test designed to measure the student’s awareness of general road safety and hazard avoidance. It includes 100 multiple-choice questions and a series of 19 videos containing 20 developing hazards.
  • Case Studies Test – This test is required in order for a driver to earn his or her initial CPC qualification card. The test poses a series of six or seven case studies, each one a scenario the professional driver is likely to encounter during his or her career. The case studies are accompanied by multiple-choice questions designed to test how the driver might respond in a similar situation in real life.
  • Practical Demonstration – The practical demonstration test examines the candidate’s knowledge of certain job-related tasks other than driving. For example, a driver needs to know how to properly load and secure cargo prior to departure. Each of the topics covered in this test is part of the Driver CPC syllabus.
  • Driving Skills – Lastly is the driving skills test. This one should be self-explanatory. Candidates are put behind the wheel of a late-model vehicle and examined for their ability to safely and proficiently drive. Some time is spent on public roads while part of the test takes place on a closed course at the testing facility.

If you need to know it for one of the four tests listed above, we make sure you have learned it in your HGV training in Glamorgan. We pursue an ambitious goal that dictates no student should have to take a test more than once. We do not succeed every time, but more than 90% of the students who complete our training programmes pass their tests on the first try.

How Our Training Works

You have quite a few choices when it comes to HGV training in Glamorgan. Therefore, we also believe it’s important for you to know how our training works. This is the only way you can determine whether or not training with us is the right thing for you.

To begin with, the average student who learns quickly and applies him or herself can complete HGV or PCV training in just a few weeks. We do not put our students through long and arduous programmes that take months to complete. From our perspective, there is no point in adopting such a strategy. Every student who trains with us already has a valid car licence, so it’s not like drivers are starting over from scratch. Our training takes advantage of the knowledge and experience drivers already have to complete commercial training as quickly as possible.

There are a few additional things you need to know about our training:

  • PaceIn order to take advantage of short-term memory, we have adopted a training approach that moves at a relatively brisk pace. We purposely try not to overwhelm our students with too much information all at once, but we also do not drag things out unnecessarily. Classes move quickly, building one principle on the next in quick succession.
  • Concentration – We enhance the pace of our training programmes with a concentrated approach that focuses only on what our students need to know to pass their exams. This kind of on-topic concentration may not be something you are used to from your days in primary school, but it really does work.
  • Extra Help – If a student is struggling at any time during training, he or she need only ask for extra help from instructors. Likewise, all instructors are trained to be on the lookout for struggling students. They come alongside each student to provide all of the help and support necessary to succeed.

During your training, there will be certain administrative tasks that need to be taken care of. For example, paperwork needs to be completed and tests booked. One of the advantages of training with us is that we provide a full administrative staff to handle those tasks for you. We want our students to be able to concentrate on training without having to worry about administrative bureaucracy.

Get Your Licence and Get to Work

The haulage and transport industries in the UK are currently short tens of thousands of drivers. This is not good for either the industry or the economy as a whole. In light of that, the HGV Training Centre was established by a team of experienced individuals who wanted to do their part to contribute to alleviating the driver shortage. Our company exists to help people just like you get your licence and get to work. The more drivers we can successfully train, the stronger the industry will be.

Upon completing your training and obtaining your licence, the HGV Training Centre will do what we can to help you find work. Our job placement assistance includes access to our up-to-date job database covering HGV and PCV jobs all over the UK. Of course, you will also be able to list the HGV Training Centre as your training provider on job applications. Our name tells potential employers that you have been trained according to the highest standards of professionalism.

We encourage you to consider HGV training in Glamorgan whether you are just starting out or you are a seasoned worker looking for something new. The HGV Training Centre makes training fast, convenient, affordable, and as easy as possible. Your decision to train with us will put you on the road to a long and rewarding career as a professional driver.<!–[if gte mso 9]>
