Firstly, it is important to know that there is no difference between LGV training and HGV training. HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) is the term usually used in Britain, and LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) usually in Europe.
The transport industry is constantly thriving and businesses are always seeking employees. This job would be ideal for someone seeking something slightly different to the usual 9-5 Monday to Friday role. Many companies offer the ability to climb the career ladder after gaining experience as well as job stability and a competitive salary. As well as this, you will also get the chance to travel to many different parts of the country.

HGV/LGV Training Courses In Deeside
We run the following LGV & HGV training courses in Deeside:
This qualification allows you to drive a vehicle of 3.5 tonnes – 7.5 tonnes, with or without a trailer of 750 KG. The duration of this course is 4 days. Please note, if you passed your driving test (car) before January 1997, you will have acquired rights, which means you are already entitled to drive such vehicles. If you wish to drive professionally you will need a Driver CPC qualification. This involves attending courses on various aspects of professional driving. If you passed your driving test after January 1997 you will not have acquired rights. In this case, you require the relevant theoretical and practical training and need to pass the relevant exams. You must be 18 or over to attend this course.
This is the most popular HGV license in the UK. The average Category C vehicle is an 18 tonne rigid. Once you have passed your Category C your license will be upgraded with the C + E provisional entitlement allowing you to train to drive C + E (articulated vehicle) if required.
