LGV Driver Training

LGV / HGV Driver Training …

Quality, affordable training with friendly, experienced trainers.

Our LGV / HGV driver training prepares candidates to obtain their LGV Cat C1, C or CE licence, enabling them to drive goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.

The course will provide the skills and knowledge to become a professional large goods driver.

Our training follows a one hour initial assessment so that we get a good idea of how many hours will be required to achieve the test standard.

Here at MEG Training Solutions we specialise in delivering all levels (CAT C1, C, CE) of quality LGV driver training. Our training vehicle is specially chosen to make the conversion from car to LGV as simple as possible giving you the best possible chance of first time success.  We carry out all our manoeuvring training in MEG Training’s dedicated grounds to ensure uninterrupted lessons that are delivered to your needs and requirements.

Outcome:  On completion of training candidates will be ready to take a test to obtain their professional LGV driving licence and driver qualification card (DQC) enabling them to drive goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.

We will take you though these training stages;

  • Medical test
  • Theory test
  • Hazard perception test
  • 1 hour pre-training assessment drive
  • Driver training
  • Driver CPC case studies
  • Practical test
  • Driver CPC practical demonstration

To obtain a Cat ‘C’ licence all participants must first successfully pass the stage-by-stage process.  Candidates will be fully supported by our dedicated, informed, friendly team who will be there to guide them through every step of the process.  The steps to completion are as follows:

Stage 1 – Medical & Provisional Licence

We will send you the necessary paperwork to be completed, and advise you with regards to arranging your medical.  Once this is done; all you have to do is send off your completed paperwork to the DVLA.

Stage 2 – Theory & Hazard Perception Test

Once you have received your provisional licence from the DVLA you can begin to practice and revise the theory and hazard perception tests.  Our team will provide you with all the necessary study materials to ensure you are confident and enable you to pass first time.

Stage 3 – Practical Lessons and Test

All our instructors are fully qualified and trained to the best possible standards to enable them to provide you with the highest quality training experience.  To give you the best possible chance of passing your test first time our  courses are filled with helpful tips that include: completing a daily walk around check (mirrors, gears, signalling and manoeuvring), how to use the road correctly, and details of the way the truck works, inside and out.  Our excellent courses provide our students with the confidence and knowledge of how to manage and operate such large vehicles.  Our instructors possess a wealth of knowledge; using every opportunity to learn from them will increase your chances of passing your test.

By the time you are ready for your test you will have been given opportunity throughout the course to drive the common test routes and by this time should be familiar and confident with the roads.  As the tests are run independently by the DVSA, our team has no influence on the results.  However, all of our course instructors are experienced with the tests and will provide you with all the guidance and preparation you need to ensure the best possible chance of success at the first attempt. We firmly believe that going into the test with a confident attitude will give you the best possible chance of passing first time; listening to your instructors advice will put you in the best possible position for this to happen.
