We’ve got answers for your questions
How long does HGV training take?
Practical training can take as little as 4 days, and motivated students can be on the road in 6 weeks. Discuss your timelines with an advisor and we’ll organise a schedule to fit.
How much does HGV training cost?
Costs can vary depending on where you are, and what kind of licence you’re after. To get a quote for your needs, request one online or speak to an advisor on 0800 0744 007.
What’s the difference between LGV & HGV?
Short answer: there isn’t any. EU legislation refers to ’large goods vehicles’ (LGVs), and UK tax discs refer to ‘heavy goods vehicles’ (HGVs). A ‘light goods vehicle’ is under 3.5 tonnes, and you can usually drive it on a standard licence.
Can I train now and pay later?
When you pay later, you pay more – up to 400%, in some cases, and to a debt collector with no connection to your course. We don’t like that, and you shouldn’t either.
How much can I earn as an HGV driver?
The earning potential of an HGV driver has grown dramatically over the past 10 years, with the average C+E driver earning up to £32k per year. This is an increase of an average of around £10k, compared with 10 years ago. We fully expect the salaries for HGV drivers to continue to grow as the demand for qualified HGV drivers expands due to growth in online purchases.
