Whether you’re looking to drive a heavy goods vehicle or a vehicle designed for transporting passengers, you’ll need to be qualified to do so.

We offer a wide range of courses to suit all requirements with our core option being LGV training. You can find out more about this below as well as our bus training course.

    Transport Training, Southampton Professionals Know and Trust

    Anyone wishing to drive vehicles weighing more than 3,500kg must undergo LGV/ HGV training. Once completed, this course equips you with a Rigid/ Class 2/ LGV licence, leaving you fully equipped to work within an industry where LGV drivers are in high demand. You’ll be taught by an experienced instructor who’s fully NRI-accredited and holds a current DBA/ CRB certificate. If you’d prefer to be taught by a female instructor, one can be made available.

    With a first-time pass rate around 25% above the national average, Wayside Transport is certainly the go-to option for transport training in Southampton. There are, of course, official requirements to bear in mind which can be viewed by clicking on our LGV training page.

    Minibus/ Bus Training

    If your chosen profession involves transporting people rather than goods, you’ll be required to hold a Category D or D1 licence. For relevant transport training, Southampton customers need look no further than Wayside Transport. As with heavy goods vehicles, your standard driver’s licence is insufficient to drive a minibus/ bus. The principal difference between a D and D1 licence is that the former lets you drive any bus with more than eight passenger seats (with a trailer up to 750kg).

    The D1 licence, on the other hand, only permits you to drive a vehicle with no more than 16 passenger seats that is a maximum length of eight metres, with a trailer up to 750kg. As with our LGV training, you’ll receive one-to-one tuition from fully accredited instructors. You can take your test at our Southampton transport training centre, and our courses are intensive, designed to get you trained up as quickly as possible.
