C+E Licence

C+E Training is more popular than ever. We train all over Surrey and Hampshire using the Guildford test centre for our Mod 3 b tests. HGV driver training has changed recently in what is required to get the HGV class 1. You will first have to pass a test on the reverse manoeuvre. You will need to complete an s-shaped reverse into a mock-up loading bay and cop lease an uncoupling and re-coupling exercise. Once you have passed that, you get six months to complete the driving test, or you will have to start over again.

Fast Track HGV Training

What is fast-track HGV training? Our fast-track course is for people that have yet to have HGV training before, meaning they have only got a car license. This course is designed for you to leave with your full class 1 HGV licence. The HGV driver training course will teach you everything you need to be able to pass your class 1 test. On successful completion of the course, you will leave with a full HGV driver's licence.

Initial CPC

Initial CPC is two tests and will give you a driver qualification card for five years. The first test is a theory test. The second test is a practical demonstrating test.


For the multiple choice test, there are 100 questions. You will be given 115 minutes to complete it. There are options for the questions to be read to you if you struggle with reading. You must complete the test in English or Welsh.

Learning anything can be challenging without the proper training.

It all depends on what you need, but you can expect to pay about £100 per hour for your training, and then you need to factor in the test fees. HGV training courses come in packages to help save on the cost of the training. Many companies also offer finance options to spread the costs.

Automatic HGV training is done in an automatic HGV vehicle, so there are no gearboxes to deal with. You will still get the manual licence along as you have a manual car licence.

HGV stands for Heavy Goods Vehicle, an older term for vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes. LGV is a newer term from the EU for Large Goods Vehicles for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. They have the same meaning. Both are still in use today.

There is still a massive demand for HGV drivers in the UK, and the UK is still facing HGV driver shortages. Despite our best efforts in training HGV drivers, new drivers can't come in fast enough to replace the older and EU drivers leaving the industry.
