Testimonials

My mate recommended HGV Express to me and I can see why. I started the HGV Training in January and by the start of February I had already gained my HGV accreditation and I also had a work placement with a well known haulage company already lined up. HGV Express even helped me finance the whole course, what I was most impressed with is the attitude and willingness of the staff, they are head and shoulders above the rest. Thank you!!

Nick Bridgeman

I just want to say a big thank you to the team at HGV Express. I was amazed at how quickly the whole HGV training course went, from start to finish it only took one week! The team is very professional and you could not ask for more friendly staff. After I received my licence they also found me a job within 2 days. HGV Express are the best in the business.

How do I get started?

You will first need to get your HGV medical done, we can put you in touch with a local discount provider (otherwise around £150 from your local GP or medical centre). Once you’ve completed your medical, you then need to apply for your HGV provisional licence, which is provided in your starter pack. Simply fill out the forms and send them off to the DVLA along with your completed medical forms.
What does the test involve?

The LGV theory test involves a multiple choice part with 100 questions and a hazard perception part with 19 scenarios, both of which must be passed in order to pass the test. The pass mark for the multiple choice section is 85.

The practical test lasts approximately 90 minutes, during this time you’ll need to demonstrate that you can drive safely under various road conditions. Various set exercises will need to be carried out including a braking exercise and reversing within a marked area into a restricted opening.

Licensing

HGV Express offers C Category and C & E Category training, support and accreditation.

C Category allows you to drive smaller trucks known as “rigid bodied vehicles.” These trucks do not have a separated cab and without the proper licensing, you will not be allowed to legally drive these vehicles. Training for this type of licence can be accomplished in a short amount of time, which means you will be able to get started in a new job right away.

C & E Category gives you the ability to drive larger Class 1 artic trucks that are also known as articulated lorries. These vehicles feature a cab that is separated from the trailer, and take a little extra time to learn how to drive.

At HGV Express, as well as guiding you through the training, we will also advise, help and support you in getting your first HGV job. If you’re unsure about which licence is suitable for you see our Which HGV Licence Do I Need? page.

There are several ways to finance your training. Please register and our friendly staff can help you.
