There is a huge national shortage of HGV / LGV drivers within the UK and our intensive LGV C+E training will qualify you for your LGV CE licence. We can even arrange a guaranteed job interview for you once you have qualified.

  HGV Class 1 training (LGV C+E training) is for those who require an HGV Class 1 licence in order to drive articulated Heavy Goods Vehicles, commonly known as HGV Class 1. or C+E artic licence.

Our intensive HGV Training courses can range from 3 to 5 days depending on your level of experience and ability. We can arrange an initial HGV licence training driving assessment to ascertain how many hours of Class 1 licence training
you are likely to need and then book the most suitable course for you.

The aim is to provide you with the theoretical and practical knowledge to drive C+E (artic lorry) vehicles and to help you pass your C+E driving test first time.
