COURSE IN Middlesex

Choosing a career path is not always the easiest thing to do. There are so many choices that you may not know which way to go. On the other hand, it does not have to be exceptionally difficult either. Just step back and assess who you are, what drives you, what you like and don’t like, and so on. Then go from there.

If you are the kind of person that likes to be out and about, the kind of person who would not do well sitting behind a computer or working in a retail shop, perhaps you should consider professional driving. There are tens of thousands of open driving jobs at companies in Middlesex, the Greater London area, and throughout the UK. You can start applying for those jobs right after receiving HGV training in Middlesex and getting a commercial driving licence.

As part of the Greater London area, Middlesex is as busy as anywhere else in the region. Local economic activity includes just about everything – from light industrial to retail to technology. All of this activity requires the goods, supplies and equipment needed to make local business is run. And how do most of the material arrive? On the back of a lorry or delivery van.

Middlesex also enjoys a thriving tourist sector and plenty of public transport. Between buses and coaches, people are moving in and out of the local area by the thousands. The point is this: it is the buses and lorries you see on the streets every day that keeps the economy moving. Operators provide valuable services to their customers daily, and they need qualified drivers like you to make it happen.

Here at the HGV Training Centre, we are as proud as we can be to be part of the logistics industry. If you have what it takes, you can be part of the industry as well. You only need some high-quality training and a desire to embark on a career that will provide decades of satisfaction and reward. When you drive for a living, you are doing more than just earning a salary. You are contributing to one of the most vital parts of our economy.

Our goal is to get you through your training and off to work as quickly as we can. The industry is currently short tens of thousands of drivers with expectations of the shortage getting worse before it gets better. Therefore, we see no practical reason to put you through a long training programme that could take years to complete. Instead, we have developed a very fast training approach that takes just weeks for those who learn quickly and apply themselves.

Do not make the assumption that speed equals poor quality. It does not. We offer top quality training that is focused and concentrated so as to be as quick as possible. We do not waste time on things our students don’t need to know to get their licences. Simply put, we train to and for the required tests. Passing the tests is what it takes to get your commercial driving licence, so that is what we focus on.

Once you complete your training, you can immediately start looking for work. You will have access to our up-to-date jobs database covering open positions all across the UK. And, of course, listing the HGV Training Centre as your training provider certainly provides a boost to your application.

We Train for Multiple Licence Categories

We promote our classes as HGV training in Middlesex. But we actually go above and beyond just the typical articulated lorry most people think about. In fact, we offer training for a full range of commercial driving licences and vehicle classes. Most of our students are after one of the following seven licences:

  • Category B+E – This licence is necessary for towing trailers for anyone who obtained a car licence after 1 January 1997. It allows for trailer and tow vehicle combinations of up to 3,500 kg.
  • Category C1 – This licence is for slightly heavier vehicles. It allows individuals to drive vans and small trucks of up to 7,500 kg with trailers weighing no more than 750 kg.
  • Category C1+E – Drivers with this licence can operate vehicles with trailers heavier than 750 kg provided the combined weight of both vehicles does not exceed 1,200 kg
  • Category C – This is the most common licence for commercial HGV drivers. Drivers can operate lorries of more than 3,500 kg with trailers heavier than 750 kg.
  • Category C+E – This licence is for the heaviest of HGVs and construction equipment. It allows for vehicles over 7,500 kg towing trailers heavier than 750 kg
  • Category D – The category D licence is for coaches and buses with trailers of up to 750 kg.
  • Category D+E – The category D+E licence is for buses and coaches with trailers heavier than 750 kg.

Some of our students are interested in the Category D1 or D1+E licence for minibus operation. These licences would be for people who drive a minibus for hire, not for those who drive on a voluntary basis. We can answer any questions you might have about minibus licences when you contact us.
