LGV CAT C. Before you can get on with your LGV truck driver training you will need to hold a provisional CAT C licence. The first job is to have a medical. You can have your medical on a Saturday morning at our Stanton Hill centre. Not local? No problem. Our Customer Support Team will be pleased to organise a local medical for you.
The fee is included in our Starter Pack. The forms you will need will be waiting for you when you arrive. If you are going to use your own doctor, give us a call and we’ll send you the necessary forms. Either way, the medical form, licence application and car licence then go to Swansea for your provisional entitlement to be added.
You will normally receive your CAT C provisional licence within a few days; call us immediately to arrange your LGV theory training and test. The theory training takes place at our training centre and your theory test will be arranged at a DVSA centre to suit you. This can be anywhere in the UK. The pass rate for those following this route is virtually 100%.
We always suggest you go for our STARTER PACK which includes medical, theory training day, on-line theory training, all theory tests, Mod 2 classroom training plus Introduction to Drivers’ Hours all at a discounted price of just £250. Then you’re ready for the practical – which is what you really want to do! Your truck driver training course will be arranged to start as soon as possible after your theory test with dates to suit you. The training course will be organised to end with a test.
All our training is conducted on a 1 to 1 basis so you get individual tuition with no cab sharing. Many schools offer 2:1 as it is more profitable. We prefer to concentrate our efforts on one person at a time – giving you the best possible training experience.
Practical LGV/HGV tests are taken at our own test centre at Stanton Hill. We have a large number of pre-booked tests to minimise waiting time. The centre is private to us, so no other trainers coming in to watch you on test!
For CAT C, we operate trucks which are all purchased brand new. So no old bangers!!! In fact, we probably operate the newest truck driver training fleet in the county and have an ongoing programme to ensure our trucks are always up to date.
RESIDENTIAL COURSE IS AVAILABLE AT NO ADDITIONAL COST IF YOU LIVE MORE THAN 70 MILES FROM OUR TRAINING CENTRE. JUST CALL OUR CUSTOMER SUPPORT TEAM 01623 555661 AND ALL THE ARRANGEMENTS WILL BE MADE AT TIMES CONVENIENT FOR YOU.
With one of the highest pass rates in the UK (20% higher than Sheffield or Watnall test centres) why would you go anywhere else?
PRACTICAL TRAINING IS ONLY APPROVED BY NVDIR OR RTITB. DVSA NO LONGER APPROVE TRAINING CENTRES OR INSTRUCTORS SO ANY CLAIMS ON WEBSITES TO THAT EFFECT ARE WORTHLESS. DVSA ONLY APPROVE DRIVING TEST CENTRES AND WILL NOT APPROVE TRAINING CENTRES. BUYER BEWARE!
Another great service we offer! MEDICALS. Our doctor visits fortnightly on a Saturday morning. Call the office to book your appointment. Perfect for new drivers, licence renewals and Mansfield District Council Taxi drivers. Live too far away? No problem. Call the office and a member of the Customer Support Team will be pleased to arrange a local medical for you. D4 (Medical Report Forms) are stocked at our office so no need to wait for Swansea to send you one.
We are all fully committed to your success. All our instructors are NVDIR Registered LGV Instructors (strangely, this is not a legal requirement so just about anyone with a LGV licence can buy an old truck and stick L plates on it and call themselves an instructor!) Sadly, they do.
Not all training is the same; we strongly suggest you look around at different trainers and see the differences, you will be surprised. It is perfectly normal to find a trainer parked in the corner of a muddy yard with zero facilities. Travelling 20 miles to practice reversing is not unheard of. Then consider the age of the vehicle and instructor qualifications (if any) and you’ll notice that we’re worlds apart. Call in any time between 7:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and a member of our team will be pleased to show you around, our very own Accredited Training and Test Centre.
We have many thousands of happy satisfied customers. Why not add to this number?
