The Benefits of HGV And LGV Training

When searching the local jobs pages as you look for a change of career, there’s a good chance that you’ll find a large number of driving vacancies offering a good salary and hours which would suit your needs and requirements perfectly. So why not apply for them? If it’s because you’ve not passed your LGV or HGV training and gained the all-important HGV licence, then a leading HGV training provider can assist, whilst bringing you added benefits too.

Learning to drive for the first time was a nerve-racking experience, however changing the car for a 7.5 tonne plus vehicle is an altogether different experience, so it’s important that if you’re taking the step out of the office or industrial sector and into the haulage industry that you get training which offers you the best chance of succeeding.

Some of the ways to ensure this is by carefully selecting the training providers that you go with. Choosing the right one will give you a range of benefits both in the short and long term, and below are some of the things you should look for.

Professional Teaching:

Learning from a professional should be a must, and one particular firm use instructors who have previously had a career as a driver of either an LGV or HGV. By learning with these not only will you be taught the basics that you’ll require to pass your training and essentially the HGV test, but they can also pass on guidance and impartial advice which they picked up during their time within the industry.

DSA Registered:

Believe it or not it isn’t compulsory for providers of HGV training to be DSA registered. However, when looking for a training provider it’s recommended to look for one who is DSA registered as this will confirm that you’re being taught by people who know what they’re doing, again giving you the best chance to pass your test.

By going with a DSA registered training provider you can also ensure you’re being taught by providers who are up to date with the latest legislation and regulations, which presents you with the benefit of getting the best training course money can buy.

Best Vehicles Used:

There’s no use learning in a vehicle which doesn’t replicate the real thing, which is why you should go for a firm who use the latest HGVs instead of used trucks when taking your training.

If you’re in any doubt as to who to go with for your HGV training and what benefits they offer, speak to those who have already passed, after all word of mouth is often the best form of advertising.
