HGV & LGV Training Courses
HGV/LGV drivers are widely used throughout many industries. It is a very sought after career which pays well and has excellent employment benefits. However, anyone aiming to work within this role must first receive the appropriate level of training.
At TL Training we offer a number of HGV/LGV training courses in North Wales for businesses and individuals. Our team of highly experienced and friendly trainers will offer full support throughout your training and pass on their many years of knowledge and guidance to you.
As you may know, UK driving licenses are divided into a number of different categories based on the weight and size of the vehicle. A standard full driving license is called a category B license. HGV/LGV training will enable you to gain a licence to drive vehicles of other categories.
Our HGV/LGV Courses In North Wales
We offer the following HGV/LGV category training courses to candidates in North Wales:
The lowest of the LGV license classes. Designed for drivers of vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. For example, those driving transit vans, small box trucks, ambulances, grocery delivery trucks. If you passed your driving test before 01/01/1997 you will have acquired rights meaning you are able to drive such vehicles. If you passed your driving test after the above dates, you will need to seek further training.
This license is held by most LGV drivers in the UK. It is designed for those driving tipper trucks, bin lorries, articulated lorries, heavier box trucks. Once you have passed your category C your license can be upgraded with the C + E provisional entitlement allowing you to drive a C + E if you wish.
