Cat CE HGV LGV Class 1 Driver Training

Cat CE formally known as HGV Class 1. 

We have 0% finance options and can offer Student Loans . 

The minimum age to apply is 18 and you must hold a valid UK driving license and a Cat C (Class 2) If you do not hold a Cat C please take a look at this page. 

  • Step 1 Driving Assessment (optional) We recommend visiting one of our sites and undertaking an assessment drive to determine the correct amount of practical lessons that you will need.
  • Step 2 Cat CE Practical Training Mod 3 We will arrange a suitable course. This is usually 4 days of 1:1 driver training and the practical DVSA test at Shropshire's only private site. 

The course is designed to make the license acquisition process very quick, simple and an effective method to help gain your new license. 

The practical course is 1:1 and we usually recommend an intensive driver training course, we can be flexible operating in the evening and weekends to work around your busy schedule. We use brand new DAF CF training vehicles which are conventional artics because they are easy to drive, reverse and simple. They are all factory fitted with reversing cameras which aid you on the lessons and test. We have our own private test site meaning that we follow test routes and practice the manoeuvres from the same site that you will take your test. A lot of providers train you in one town but then test you in another which we disagree with, that is why we set up Shropshire's only private site. We have a lot of tests available at our site, this will keep your waiting time to a minimum and could speed up the process by 10 weeks. 

The Driver CPC will only be needed if you are driving professionally. If you need it we will add this to your training program and can also help you with a tachograph application. We will make sure everything is covered from your initial application to starting your new career. We are one of the only independent training providers in the UK with our own in-house DVSA Driver CPC Mod 4 examiner. We train you and test you at our site. Be aware of some providers who do this, if you are trained by the same person who tests you or does any other driver training with you before or after the Driver CPC this is not allowed and may have consequences. 

We will also help you with looking for your new job through our network of local hauliers and driving agencies.

Our services can not be matched or beaten for quality and professionalism which is why we are one of the UK's largest driver training providers with our own private test site.
