COURSE IN Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire is a region of England built on manufacturing and the coal industry. But like so many other areas of the country, the county fell on hard economic times when the industries of old began to dry up and fade away. The Nottinghamshire of the 21st century is decidedly different to what residents knew just 50 years ago. Employment is but one example.

Perhaps you are visiting our website today because you’re intrigued by the possibility of becoming an HGV driver. If so, we have good news: our HGV training in Nottinghamshire is accepting new students all the time. Even more importantly, training with us is fast, convenient, and reasonably affordable. Just call us on our freephone number to get all of the details. We can have you ready to get to work in a matter of weeks.

Rewards of Professional Driving

You should know right from the start that the HGV Training Centre was originally established for the primary purpose of helping as many new drivers as possible break into to the haulage and transport industries. Both industries are in the midst of a severe driver shortage that could take years to overcome. Anyone with a commercial driving licence and a willingness to work hard can find long-term and stable work as a driver.

Our question to you is this: what are you looking for? If you are hoping to find a job that will pay the bills, then HGV driving could be the answer. Starting pay for new drivers averages between £18,000 and £22,000 annually. That’s not bad for not having gone to university and completing a four-year degree programme. What’s more, you could earn up to £35,000 with time and experience under your belt, or go even higher by obtaining one of the specialised certificates needed to transport certain kinds of cargo.

Competitive pay is just one of the many rewards of professional driving. Consider these as well:

  • Job Security – We believe one could make the case that only the healthcare sector offers more job security than professional driving. Haulage and transport are currently short tens of thousands of drivers; the shortage is expected to get worse before it gets better. The shortage guarantees job security to any driver who works hard and obeys the law.
  • Daily Challenges – Some workers just don’t deal well with a static work environment involving the same routine day after day. HGV drivers are free from that routine, for the most part. Every day is a new day with different adventures, new challenges, and lots of interesting people to meet.
  • Relative Freedom – Take a job in an office and you are likely to have a supervisor watching your every move. Drivers enjoy relative freedom for obvious reasons. As long as you get your load where it’s going in one piece and on time, you will experience the freedom of the open road.
  • Advancement Opportunities – Despite what you may have heard from other people, HGV driving is not a dead-end job with no future. Some drivers spend their entire careers on the road because that is what they love, but there are plenty of others who eventually transition to other positions. Drivers can go on to become fleet managers, dispatchers, driving trainers, and even executives.

One last reward of professional driving is a bit more intangible. It is the reward of knowing that the services you provide are a vital part of the UK economy we could not do without. If it were not for a strong logistics sector transporting cargo and people all across the British Isles, our citizens would not enjoy the kind of lifestyle we experience on a daily basis. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the professional drivers who make it all work.

Why Train with Us

Hopefully, we have piqued your interest in professional driving as a career choice. If so, we want to explain why we believe you should choose us for HGV training in Nottinghamshire. You have other training companies to choose from; we understand that. But we believe the training and environment we offer are the best you can get.

To start with, we have developed a fast-paced and intense training approach designed to save you money and get you through training as quickly as possible – without compromising quality. Our students do not spend 6 to 12 months learning things they can learn in a matter of weeks. They do not spend hour after long hour listening to lectures while fighting to stay mentally attuned.

Our students learn what they need to learn to pass the required tests; nothing more, nothing less. Furthermore, they learn in an environment that is conducive to quick mastery. The approach we have developed relies on incremental learning, presenting concepts in quick succession. We move quickly in order to take advantage of short-term memory for the purposes of maximising test results. Yes, it is fast-paced. But our training does yield positive results.

You should also consider our HGV training in Nottinghamshire for the following reasons:

  • Convenience – Since our company was established, we have been pursuing a strategy of expansion in order to make training as convenient as possible. We are now the largest provider of commercial driver training in the UK, operating more than four dozen facilities throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
  • Individual Support – We are committed to making sure our students succeed as both trainees and professional drivers. To that end, every student receives the individual support needed to complete training and pass the required exams. If you have trouble at any point during your training, you need only speak to your instructors or a member of the support staff.
  • Our Instructors – We believe the best people to teach our students are instructors with real-world experience. We search the UK for people who have spent time behind the wheel as professionals themselves. They are the ones we want to teach in our classrooms.
  • Administrative Support – The HGV Training Centre employs a full administrative staff to help students work their way through training. Administrative staff assist by answering questions, helping students submit paperwork, and even booking tests.
  • Learning Materials – We provide our students with all the learning materials they will need to complete training. This includes software they use to prepare for the HGV theory exam. The software includes practice tests and questions taken from actual exams offered in the past.
  • Financing – We are proud to say that the HGV Training Centre is one of only a small handful of training companies in the UK offering financing to students. We can finance every class on offer, so you can undergo training today and pay for it over time. Be sure to ask about financing when you contact us to learn more about HGV training in Nottinghamshire.

We have given you half-a-dozen reasons to consider us as your training partner. We could give you more, but you get the point. Everything we do is directed at making sure our students succeed in their pursuit of a commercial driver licence and a professional driving career. We do what we do for two reasons: we believe in the value of a strong logistics sector AND we know that we only succeed when our students succeed.

If you have any questions about HGV training in Nottinghamshire, you need only contact us on our freephone number. Between now and the time training begins, we would encourage you to educate yourself about the four tests required to get a commercial driving licence. They are the theory, case studies, driving skills and practical demonstration tests. We will prepare you to pass each one on the first try.

Your pursuit of a professional driving career starts by contacting us. Are you ready to make it happen?
