Every autumn we turn back the clock by one hour after having used that extra hour of sunlight to our advantage throughout the summer months. What you might not know is that traffic statistics show a significant increase in accidents and other road incidents in the two weeks immediately following the time change. As such, HGV and LGV drivers are being urged to be more cautious as everyone adjusts.

HGV UK says there are a number of factors that might help explain the increase in the number of road incidents after turning the clock back in the autumn:

Statistics show that we all get used to driving in the dark a couple weeks after the time change. Not that this is a reason to be less cautious starting in mid-November. It’s not. However, we join other organisations in urging commercial drivers to exercise extra care while everyone gets used to the time change again.

Proper Training and Safety

As a leading provider of HGV and LGV driver training, we believe proper training and safety go hand-in-hand. That is why we work so hard to provide our students with HGV CAT C +E training that meets or exceeds all industry standards for safety. If you want to learn how to drive commercial vehicles safely and efficiently, the HGV Training Centre is the place to be.

We train students for all sorts of commercial vehicles including lorries, tipper trucks, vans, and more. New classes are forming regularly at our 60+ facilities throughout the UK. Contact us for more details.
