All you need to do is contact us to learn more about HGV or PCV training in your area. When you do, you will learn that:

Train Quickly and Start Working

At the core of what we do is a desire to help address the driver shortage by training as many drivers as we can and getting them to work. In light of that desire, we do not believe it is productive for either drivers or the industry to waste time dealing with training that is not necessary to obtain a commercial driving licence. Training that can be provided on the job is training we leave to employers. We focus on the information and skills necessary to pass the government mandated tests.

We utilise a very fast and focused training methodology that condenses a lot of information into a short amount of time. But don’t be concerned; what we do is not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination. Actually, our training methodology is based on the way people learn naturally throughout their lives. It involves:

  • Short Bursts of Information – Just like children learning basic tasks such as dressing themselves, adults attempting to learn new skills do best when information is presented in short bursts. That is what we do. We do not overwhelm students with a lot of information that must all be absorbed simultaneously. Instead, we keep topics short and focused.
  • Building Block Learning – Presenting information in short bursts lends itself well to the concept of building block learning. Our students learn one concept at a time, building on each one in short succession. Like builders erecting a house brick-by-brick, we teach our students concept-by-concept.
  • Practice – The best way to retain and recall information is to practice. Therefore, we emphasise practice in all of our training programmes. Students practice before taking every test as a means of solidifying knowledge and skills while also building confidence.

Our HGV training in Bath and north-east Somerset can be completed in just a few weeks for most drivers. Those who need a bit more time can take it, but doing so is usually not necessary.

Our Methods Are Very Effective

There are numerous ways to measure the effectiveness of any HGV training programme. One of those ways is by looking at pass rates for the various tests. This is a very good measure inasmuch as drivers cannot obtain a commercial driving licence without passing the tests. Therefore, if a student came to us for training but failed to pass his or her tests, we would have failed in our primary objective.

We are happy to report that drivers enrolled in all of our training programmes pass their tests on the first try at a rate that is consistently above 90%. Just to show you how truly impressive that is, the average pass rate for the LGV test nationwide is only about 55%.

The numbers clearly dictate that our training methods work as advertised. When you undergo HGV training in Bath and north-east Somerset, you will be undergoing a programme specially designed to make sure you do not have to repeat your tests. The vast majority of our drivers take them once and are done.

We Make Training Convenient

There is a lot to be said for size when it comes to providing commercial driver training. While a small and locally owned company can be effective in its immediate area, a nationwide company like ours has a much broader reach. How do you benefit from that reach? Through access to conveniently located training facilities.

As mentioned earlier, we operate more than four dozen training facilities throughout the country. That means there is likely one very close to where you live or work. Whether you want HGV training in Bath and north-east Somerset or anywhere else in the UK, you will find one of our centres close by. You will not have to commute for long hours every day, and you will certainly not have to pick up and temporarily relocate just to get a commercial driving licence.

Training with Us Is Affordable

Cost is a big issue for new drivers and an issue that is only contributing to the ongoing driver shortage. Here at the HGV Training Centre, we do everything we can to keep our costs as low as possible. We are confident in saying that training with us is affordable for almost any budget. Even if you do not have the cash on hand to pay for your training upfront, we offer financing options in every course we teach.

How do we keep our costs low? We incorporate a number of important things into our business model:

  • Saving through Volume – Just as big box stores can offer lower retail prices by concentrating on volume, we can do the same. Our size allows us to get more students through our training programmes so we can charge less and still make a very good living.
  • Efficiency – Our size also allows us to be very efficient with our resources. This saves you money in the long run because it reduces our operating costs. All the money we save is passed on to our students by way of lower prices.
  • Speed – Because we can fully train drivers in just a few weeks, our students are not spending extra money on longer classes they do not need. The less time you spend in the classroom, the less money you will spend on training. Get in, get out, and save money – that is what we believe.

We understand that you might still be concerned about cost even after reading the above information. That’s normal. But consider this: even the highest priced HGV training programmes cost a fraction of what you would pay for a four-year university degree. What’s more, you will be ready to look for work in a month or so. Your first job will have you earning a pay cheque while your friends are still off at university. And while some of them might spend years paying off student loans, you will be putting income in your pocket.

Professional driving is an excellent career option for anyone who has no interest in sitting in an office or working on a factory line. It is an excellent opportunity to earn a very good living with higher than average stability, daily challenges, and flexibility. We hope you will consider professional driving if you are just starting out as a young person. If so, our HGV training in Bath and north-east Somerset could be just what you are looking for.
