Tourism and agriculture are the two main industries in Devon. To the north and south are long stretches of coastline dotted with lovely resort towns and tourist attractions while the interior portions of the county are rural, hilly, and perfect for all kinds of farming. Tying it all together is a strong logistics industry that supplies the food and goods that residents and visitors need. Furthermore, the tourist industry provides a stable base for bus and coach companies specialising in public transport. It should be no surprise that we offer HGV training in Devon to take advantage of the transport and logistics demands.

One of the nice things about Devon is that it enjoys a population density considerably lower than many other parts of England. It is a great place to live and work for people who prefer a more laid-back setting as opposed to the hustle and bustle of, for example, a London or Manchester. We certainly enjoy offering training services in the county, as we do our other locations around the UK.

You can sign up for HGV training in Devon just by getting in touch with us on our freephone number. With just one call, you can get all of the information you need to make a decision. If you are ready to get started, we will immediately furnish you with the required paperwork, including your medical exam and provisional entitlement applications. You can take the HGV theory test as soon as you have your entitlement and then move into your formal training.

Professional Driving Is a Great Career

We assume that you are looking at our website because you are seriously considering undergoing driver training to obtain a commercial driving licence. That’s great. But if you’re still not quite ready, we want to assure you that professional driving is an excellent career choice. Becoming a professional driver will put you among the ranks of some of the hardest working people in the UK. You also become part of an industry on which the entire economy depends on.

Professional driving offers:

  • Competitive Pay – According to the National Career Service, new HGV drivers earn between £18,000 and £22,000 annually. With time and experience, it is not uncommon for salaries to go as high as £35,000. That is not bad when you consider the median salary in the UK is now just about £26,500.
  • Job Security – There are plenty of career choices that leave workers open to a significant risk of future redundancy. That is not the case in the logistics industry. PCV and HGV drivers are in high demand thanks to an ongoing driver shortage that only looks to get worse before it gets better. Becoming a professional driver means above-average job security.
  • Great Work Environment – If you do not like being stuck indoors all day long, professional driving might be right up your alley. Driving gets you out and about and lets you work in an environment of independence and relative freedom. There’s no need to worry about being micromanaged as long as you follow company policies and obey the law.
  • Advanced Opportunities – Some drivers love doing what they do so much that they stick with it for their entire lives. But you don’t necessarily have to. Other professional drivers take advantage of career advancement opportunities to move into dispatching, scheduling, fleet management, and even driver training.
  • Challenging Work – Are you the kind of person who thrives on challenge? If so, you might find an office or retail job terribly uninteresting. Driving is a different story. Professional driving is a job that carries with it daily challenges to overcome. It is one of the most exciting careers for people who love challenges.

Do not believe the common misconception that professional driving is a career of last resort. It is not. It is one that requires skill, knowledge, and dedication to one’s craft. It is also one that hundreds of thousands of people work in every day to provide for their families.

Great Drivers Need Great Training

Now that you know what an incredible career opportunity professional driving is let us talk training. PCV and HGV operators all across the UK are desperate for great drivers they can rely on. But great drivers don’t just grow on trees. They are produced as a result of great training. You can get that kind of training here at the HGV Training Centre.

Our HGV Training in Devon is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the logistics industry by producing drivers who are knowledgeable, skilled, and ready to get going on the first day of work. We are not in the business of training just to make money. Quite the contrary, our company was founded by a team of professionals who felt it was their obligation to do what they could to help address the ongoing driver shortage. Their number one goal has always been to address the shortage by producing great drivers.

Should you decide to train with us, and we hope you will, you will find that our HGV training in Devon is both distinct and different. It is distinct in that we spare no expense in honouring our commitment to drivers. It is different in that we offer an intense, fast-paced training programme designed to get drivers licenced and working as quickly as possible.

Training programmes at the HGV Training Centre do not take four, six, eight, or even 12 months to complete. The average student who learns quickly can finish training in just a few weeks. How do we do it? By focusing only on what you need to know to pass your tests, and teaching you in a way that encourages retention and recall of information.

Our training works, as evidenced by our first-time pass rate that is consistently above 90% across all of our training programmes. Drivers who complete our programmes go into their tests with extreme confidence because they know they have been taught well. And by the way, testers know it too.

Call Us Now, Let’s Get Started

Imagine starting your training now and heading off to the workforce in just a couple of months. Jobs are waiting to be had, so why wait any longer to start your HGV training in Devon? Call us now and let’s get the wheels moving, so to speak. We provide everything you need to get your commercial driving licence in a package that is competitively priced. Do not forget to ask about financing if you want to train but don’t have the cash on hand to pay for it.

The first step in the process is to get your HGV medical exam and apply for the provisional entitlement. That entitlement takes between seven and ten business days from the receipt of your application to arriving in the mail. During this time, you can prepare for the HGV theory test by either taking our preparation class or studying by yourself. We provide free software that includes real test questions and practice tests.
