Working in partnership with C-Way Driver Training, offering a range of Driver Training from Cars to Trucks to Trailers.

Before you can part take in our HGV and LGV driver training courses, and learn to drive in this category, you must have a provisional LGV/HGV licence and already hold a full licence for Category B (car).

Before you can be issued with a provisional licence you will have to undergo a medical – we can provide the relevant application forms.

To gain a full LGV/HGV licence you will have to complete the following:

  • Module 1a : 100 multiple choice questions
  • Module 1b : 19 hazard perception clips
  • Module 2 : 19 LGV/HGV case studies (if driving for hire or reward)
  • Module 3 : Practical test
  • Module 4 : Driver CPC practical test (if driving for hire or reward)

The Training Course

Theory and Hazard Perception preparation – this can be done as home study or if you would like some guidance, we are happy to arrange a training session for you.

LGV/HGV case studies – we can supply you with the relevant learning materials to help you with this module and arrange a training session if necessary.

Practical Test preparation – we will tailor a course to suit your needs after an initial assessment.

Autec training will cover:
