LGV TRAINING LIVERPOOL
With a shortfall in drivers, increased wages and job opportunities, and the recent changes in legislation that allow you to progress from a car licence straight to Class 1, there’s never been a better time to consider a new career as a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) or Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) driver.
Here at TL Training, we can help you achieve this with our comprehensive courses that will have you ready to take your test in no time.
As an accredited training provider, we offer both Class 2 and Class 1 driver training, as well as Driver CPC qualifications. Whether you’re a first-time driver or an experienced professional looking to upgrade your licence, we can tailor our training to suit your needs.
Why Undertake HGV or LGV Training in Liverpool?
There are many reasons to consider taking up a career as a driver of a large or heavy goods vehicle, with excellent job prospects and the potential to earn a good wage being just two of them.
Here in Liverpool, drivers are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the thriving logistics sector. With the Port of Liverpool handling millions of tonnes of cargo each year and the city region being home to several large distribution centres, there is a constant demand for HGV drivers.
Add to this the fact that Liverpool is within easy reach of a number of major motorways and roads, including the M6, M62, M56, and M53, and it’s easy to see why the demand for HGV drivers is so high.
What Are the Benefits of Undertaking LGV Training in Liverpool?
While training is not mandatory, there are several reasons to put yourself through a training course with an accredited provider before taking your test.
One of the main benefits is that you will learn all the skills and knowledge you need to pass your test the first time, as well as gaining valuable experience behind the wheel. With the average pass rate for the practical LGV driver tests being just 58%, you’ll need all the help you can get to ensure you pass.
Additionally, most employers will only consider hiring drivers who have been through a dedicated training course, as this shows that you are committed to your new (or existing) career.
As an employer, putting your drivers through a recognised training course also has benefits, as it can reduce insurance premiums and help to avoid potential accidents and incidents post-qualification.
