You can earn a full UK truck licence in 8 to 10 weeks. That’s a fact! However, what you learn during the training process goes far beyond just how you score on your tests. It lays the groundwork for how you perform as a professional throughout your career. This is why not every company offering a fast-track to a driving career is a good choice for training. As with any industry, there are some companies that just do not provide the high-quality training you need to be a safe and productive driver from the moment you earn your licence to the day you retire.

The Specialised Training Services (HGV Training) does offer a fast-track programme for acquiring a truck licence. However, we do not cut corners in our training. We do not force students through training so fast that they do not have time to absorb the material or actually practice their driving skills. We utilise a very focused approach that ensures every student not only learns information but also understands how to apply it in the real world. Thus, our fast-track programme can get you through training as quickly as possible without putting you on the road before you are truly ready.

We do what we do by way of a well-planned and developed training strategy. That strategy is supported by four ‘legs’, if you will:

  1. The latest training methods and technologies
  2. Full instructor support
  3. Complete administrative assistance
  4. Convenient scheduling and locations

Training Methods and Technologies

You can theoretically earn a truck licence by merely studying a book and getting lucky when it comes time to take your final practical skills test. But practically speaking, doing so is almost impossible. Therefore, how you train is critically important. The Specialised Training Services (HGV Training) utilises the latest training methods and technologies for the benefit of our students.

For example, consider the hands-on training our students receive during their study programme. This training puts students behind the wheel of a lorry while under the supervision of experienced trainers. This time behind the wheel enables a student to put what he or she has learned in the classroom to practical use. It is the time to practice skills such as reversing and cornering. All the while, instructors are giving tips and answering questions.

Behind-the-wheel training is not unusual in this business. What is unusual about the Specialised Training Services (HGV Training) is the fact that we use equipment that is currently used throughout the industry. The kinds of lorries our students train in are the same types of vehicles they will encounter in the working world.

In terms of technology, one of the things we offer new driving students is state-of-the-art software to prepare them for the HGV theory test. With this software, the student can take practice tests while continually going over the material time and again until it is mastered. Our software makes studying for the theory test as easy and convenient as possible.

Full Instructor Support

Some training companies prefer to maintain a strict business-only relationship between trainers and students. While we believe such relationships are important for professional reasons, we also expect our instructors to give students their full support throughout the training process. This support includes things such as:

If our training approach appears highly personalised, that’s because it is. We meet every student where he or she is at any given time. Through our personalised approach, we have discovered we can help almost every student succeed.

Complete Administrative Assistance

One of the keys to a fast-track programme is to remove the administrative nightmares for the student. Our administrative support strategy allows our students to concentrate their energies on learning and practicing rather than having to deal with bureaucratic red tape and paperwork. This approach is clearly seen in the way we handle booking theory and practical skills test.

There are some training companies that require students to book their own tests online. Not us. We handle all of the test bookings for the student, taking into account the pace at which he or she learns. Booking fees are included in the total package price to eliminate students having to pay out-of-pocket at the time tests are booked.

Our administrative assistance extends to paperwork as well. We provide new students with two application packs for the HGV medical and personal entitlement. We can assist our students in making sure that paperwork is completed correctly and filed in a timely manner. We even provide students with a list of registered physicians capable of conducting the HGV medical exam at a very reasonable price. As you can see, we leave no administrative stone unturned.

Convenient Scheduling and Locations

We believe one of the keys to a fast-track truck licence programme is convenience. There is no doubt we live in a fast-paced world in which the competition for attention is fierce. We do not want students to lose out on a rewarding career simply because we are not able to provide what they need when they need it.

Where class scheduling is concerned, we are flexible enough that we are able to successfully train hundreds of new drivers every month. In fact, we have new classes forming all the time. By continuously rotating classes in and out of our schedule, we are able to keep a steady stream of students working their way through our programme. Those who train with the Specialised Training Services (HGV Training) rarely find themselves waiting around for the next class to start.

We take convenience one step further by offering more than four dozen training locations across the United Kingdom. Our sheer size makes it possible to provide training regardless of where you live. There is likely a training facility close enough to your home to enable you to begin training right away, with very little effort.

Your fast track to a full HGV truck licence begins by contacting us at the Specialised Training Services (HGV Training). One of our consultants will be happy to answer any questions you might have about facility locations, class times, pricing, financing, and application requirements. We go out of our way to make the process as easy for you as possible.

If you want to earn a truck licence, we hope to hear from you soon. Please note that we can have you trained and ready to begin working within 8 to 10 weeks in most cases. All you need is a full car licence, the ability to pass a routine medical exam, and the motivation to start training.
