Dhoot Driving School (Training)

Exceptional LGV / HGV Training at DHOOT Driving School, East London

Starting a career as a LGV or HGV driver opens a wide range of opportunities within the transport and logistics industry. At DHOOT Driving School in East London, our commitment is to deliver thorough and top-notch training, not just to prepare you for the road but also to unlock lucrative career prospects.

Our instructors, all certified by the Driver and Vehicles Standard Agency (DVSA), bring extensive knowledge and years of practical experience to ensure you receive excellent training aligned with the latest industry standards. We offer flexible training schedules that can be tailored to your preferences, accommodating both full-time and part-time options to suit your lifestyle and commitments. Moreover, our pricing is fair, making HGV / LGV licence training more accessible and affordable.

Our skilled trainers and instructors are here to guide you at every stage of your training journey. Our customized training packages cover the medical test, theory test, CPC, and practical test and training. When you visit our school, you can test our vehicles, meet our instructors, and gain insights into the cost of obtaining your HGV / LGV licence.

We recommend taking a driving assessment, where our instructors will evaluate your driving skills and relevant experience. Based on the assessment, they will suggest the best training program for you to successfully pass. The assessment typically takes about an hour, and afterwards, we can provide a price quote for suitable training programs based on your performance.

To learn to drive big trucks, or lorries (HGV / LGV), certain criteria must be met. These rules ensure that you are adequately prepared and qualified to operate large trucks on the roads. At DHOOT Driving School, we are dedicated to guiding you through every step of the process, helping you embark on a fulfilling career as an LGV or HGV driver.

Here is a step-by-step guide outlining the requirements for obtaining your professional HGV / LGV licence in the UK:

  1. Minimum Age:
  • You must be at least 18 years old to start HGV / LGV training.
  1. Licence Requirements:
  • Before starting HGV / LGV training, you must already possess a car driving licence in the UK.
  1. Medical Examination:
  • Undergo a medical examination conducted by a registered medical practitioner to ensure you are physically fit for the demands of professional driving.
  1. Provisional HGV / LGV Licence:
  • Obtain a provisional HGV / LGV licence from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) before learning to drive big trucks on the road. This provisional licence allows you to receive practical training.
  1. Theory Test:
  • Pass the HGV / LGV theory test, which includes multiple-choice questions and hazard perception tests. This test assesses your knowledge of road safety, traffic rules, and truck-related information.
  1. Practical Training:
  • After completing theory training and receiving DVSA test results, undergo practical training with a DVSA certified and experienced instructor. This phase prepares you for the practical test, and effective training increases the likelihood of passing on your first attempt.
  1. Initial Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence):
  • For Category C and C+E drivers, complete the initial Driver CPC to obtain a full HGV licence. This mandatory step includes theory tests, a practical demonstration test (CPC Module 2), and a case studies test (CPC Module 4).
  1. CPC Periodic Training:
  • After the initial Driver CPC, undergo 35 hours of periodic training every five years at approved training centres. This training is mandatory to stay updated on industry changes and maintain a high level of competence.
  1. Upgrade to Full HGV Licence:
  • Once you successfully complete all tests and training, upgrade your provisional licence to a full HGV licence.

Following these steps ensures that you meet all the necessary requirements and undergo comprehensive training to operate HGVs professionally on UK roads.

Let’s take a look at different types of licenses for driving HGV / LGV vehicles:

Cat C1+E License: If you have a Cat C1+E license, you can drive trucks weighing between 3,500 kg and 7,500 kg with a trailer that’s heavier than 750 kg.

Cat C1 License: The Cat C1 license is for smaller trucks, weighing between 3,500 kg and 7,500 kg. These trucks can pull a trailer up to 750 kg or go without a trailer.

Cat C License (HGV Class 2): With a Cat C license, you can drive bigger trucks weighing more than 3,500 kg and pull a trailer up to 750 kg.

Cat C +E License (HGV Class 1): The Cat C+E license lets you drive the largest trucks, over 3,500 kg, along with trailers heavier than 750 kg.

Now, let’s talk about our training options:

  • HGV Class 1 Training: This training helps you learn how to drive the biggest trucks. It costs £1500.
  • HGV Class 2 Training: This training is for driving larger trucks and is priced at £2000.
