Kick-start your career with HGV licence training
If you’re planning on operating rigid or articulated lorries, you need to ensure that you hold an up-to-date HGV licence. Here at Wayside Transport, we specialise in providing comprehensive training courses designed to help you take the next step towards an exciting new career path. Furthermore, our courses are perfect for business owners looking to provide training programmes for their drivers.
LGV/ HGV Training for C1 Category Licences
Any motorists that passed their driving test after 1997 will not have the C1 certification on their driver’s licence. Without this certification, you are legally not allowed to operate any vehicles exceeding 3,500kg, and this includes towing a trailer. If this is you, pick up the phone and enquire about our HGV licence training.
The HGV (or LGV training as it’s more widely known as today) C1 licence grants you access to Large or Heavy Goods Vehicles. Also referred to as a Rigid or Class 2 licence, this course is required for all ambulance drivers too. At Wayside Transport, our team consists of NRI accredited instructors, each one in possession of a current DBA/ CRB certificate.
All of our courses are carefully structured and consist of a careful balance between classroom and practical training. Your instructor will guide you through the basics, teaching you the necessary skills and techniques, including shunting to ensure that you become a safe and responsible driver. With a first-time pass rate that sits at 25% above the national average, it is little wonder why we’re the preferred choice for HGV licence training in the UK.
In addition to C1 Category training, we also provide courses that cover the following licence categories:
- D (Full Bus)
- D1 (Minibus)
- D1+E (Minibus and trailer)
- B+E (Car and trailer/ caravan)
Driving Assessor Course

Driving Instructor Course
