HGV/LGV DRIVER TRAINING

Our customers say

HGV/LGV Driver Training

The demand for LGV drivers is surging, with retirements and departures creating opportunities. The average age of lorry drivers is 53, and approximately 4,000 drivers retire annually, leaving a significant gap. Estimates suggest we need 80,000 to 100,000 more drivers to meet the demand.

Since 2015, TL Training has been a trusted provider of high-quality HGV/LGV training. We specialise in training for Class 2 (Category C) and Class 1 (Category C+E) licences, along with Driver CPC and C1 Driver Training. Our diverse range of training packages is tailored to different budgets and the unique needs of individuals and businesses.

Check out our training packages below, and feel free to reach out for any inquiries or if you’re looking for a customised solution. Start your journey to a rewarding LGV driving career with TL Training!
