Introducing our HGV Driving Instructor Training
In a world where the demand for transporting goods is ever increasing, many people are turning to lorry driving because there’s work to be found and a good salary to be earned.

What can you expect from our HGV driving instructor training course?
We have formulated our instructor training course to ensure that we make incredible teachers from the best drivers. Here’s how you can expect things to happen when you choose Wayside Transport for your LGV training:
We believe that only with one-to-one HGV driving instructor training can we achieve the best results. We want to get to know you so we can deliver the best tuition to suit your needs, as we understand that everyone learns in different ways.
Getting you up to driving instructor standard
Everyone develops bad habits over time, but when you’re teaching new candidates, there’s no room for error. As a professional driving instructor, you’ll have to have a keen eye for picking up their weaknesses, spot habits before they arise and predict mistakes; and you can’t do that if you’re making the mistakes yourself. We’ll iron out all of your bad habits in the first 5 days to ensure that you can set a prime example for your future students.
Preparing for your Instructional Ability Test
There’s more than one way to teach, and you’ll find that one candidate will learn better if you use one technique, while another candidate will learn better with another technique. Part of our HGV driving instructor training course will be to make sure that you’re ready for your Instructional Ability Test, which will see your examiner put into practice the techniques and protocol you should use during your lessons.
The driving test
The driving test will ensure that you’re driving the HGV vehicle to the book. During your HGV instructor training, you will have ironed out all habits that you may have developed over the years of being a lorry driver. This will ensure that your skills will be on point and there will be no reason for failure.
The ability test
During the ability test, your examiner will take the role of the candidate, and you’ll roleplay a typical driving lesson. It’ll be your job to tailor your instruction to the abilities shown by the ‘candidate’, and demonstrate your ability to manage time so you can conquer everything in the syllabus in the standard time frame given.
You’ll need to give the ‘candidate’ the opportunity to demonstrate the skills and the techniques that you have shown them. You’ll be examined on whether you pick up on any mistakes, your ability to handle the errors, give constructive criticism and modify your teaching methods so the ‘candidate’ learns from their mistakes.
