The freight industry is positively booming at the moment, with online shopping at an all-time high there is now a demand for HGV and LGV drivers like never before. If you want to forge an exciting new career within the freight industry as a HGV or LGV driver, then we at The LGV Training Company can provide you with the training necessary to kick-start this new career; but what is the difference between LGV and HGV training?
This is a question that we at The LGV Training Company frequently get asked, which is why we’ve devised the following guide which outlines the difference between these two training courses.
Category C (LGV Training Course)
If you want to drive a Large Goods Vehicle which weighs over 3.500kg and is rigid in its infrastructure, then you first need to undergo LGV training. Here at The LGV Training Company, we help you revise for your theory test, and then give you all of the support you need to pass your practical LGV test.
This encompasses on-hand practical training, giving you the necessary skills to drive in a safe and responsible manner. We will help you to master tricky manoeuvres, giving you the experience and confidence needed to drive professionally.
Category C+E (HGV Training Course)
A HGV licence allows you to drive a Heavy Goods Vehicle, and usually involves long haul journeys in and throughout Europe, which understandably leads to a higher earning potential of £30,000 a year. The HGV training we provide is done by experienced instructors, who have the skills needed to train you to handle the enormity of these large vehicles.
We will give you lots of guidance and practical experience, giving you the best possible chance to obtain your licence and start a career in this thriving industry.
