If you are looking to acquire a C1 + E license or a B + E license, you would first need to undergo the proper training. For getting the C1 + E license which is meant for driving articulated large good or heavy good vehicles, you would need to undergo LGV (HGV) training, refresher training courses and for B + E license, which is meant for driving a towing vehicle, you would need to undergo B + E car and trailer training. At Dhoot Driving School in Upton Park, London, we provide these trainings along with PCV training and driver CPC training.
There are several advantages that you would have if you join us for driving training. For instance, language is not a barrier when you come to us for driving training. The reason is since our trainers are all multilingual even if you do not speak or understand English, you would receive instructions in a language that you are comfortable in. apart from being experts in multiple languages, our trainers are also registered with DSA as approved driving instructors. Hence if you want to learn driving, we would ensure that nothing can be a barrier.
The vehicles we use for training are as per your requirements i.e. if you wish to drive a towing vehicle we would train you with one. The vehicles are all fitted with dual control systems too and hence there are absolutely no chances of any kinds of mishaps or accidents at all while you learn how to drive.
Apart from the C1 + E license there are others to choose from too, if you opt for LGV (HGV) training. The other categories of this training program are C1 + E â€“ 7.5t & trailer, C â€“ up to 32 tons, C + E truck & trailer and C1 â€“ license. All these categories are meant for driving only rigid large good or heavy good vehicles. The kind of category you choose would depend on the weight you would be able to carry in your goods vehicle as well as your age.
The PCV training program on the other hand is meant for driving passenger carrying vehicles. The categories of this training program are D1 minibus, D1 + E minibus & trailer, D automatic bus, D manual coach, D + E coach & trailer. You would need to choose the D1 minibus and D automatic bus for driving manual operated passenger vehicles and choose any of the others for driving an automated public vehicle. Your choice of course would also depend on the number of passengers your vehicle would be able to carry and your age too.
For driving towing vehicles, you would need to opt for B + E car and trailer training. Depending on the weight your vehicle can tow, you would either have to choose B license or a B + E license.
It is imperative that you know that regardless of the kind of vehicle you choose to drive, you have to make sure that the vehicle is in good condition i.e. safe for the roads as well as legal.
You should also be well aware of the traffic rules and road safety laws for your own safety as well as for the safety of the people on the roads.
For this purpose, such that you know about all aspects of driving, we design our training programs with a combination of practical training as well as theoretical classroom education. You would not only learn to become a skilled professional driver but also a safe and knowledgeable driver.
For driving a large good vehicle or a heavy good vehicle professionally though, you would need to undergo CPC driver training as well. This is new requirement that has come into play with the 2009 legislation. There are several driver CPC modules but initially you would have to pass only driver CPC modules 4 and 2. Your practical driving test is the module 4 and CPC theory test consisting of CPC case study is the module 4. Apart from this you would also need to undergo a periodic training after every 5 years for about 35 hours, to complete your training.
At Dhoot Driving School, we not only try to make a skilled driver out of our every student but also ensure that your goal of acquiring a license is achieved. Hence if you do not pass your driving test for the first time, we have the cover of PCV pass protection and pass protection for you. With this service you would be able to appear for a re driving test, if you fail in your first attempt. We also help in all kinds of documentation like filling up the D2 and D4 forms and take the responsibility of submitting to DVLA.
