In certain kinds of professions there is an explicit need for training. Learning to drive an LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) obviously requires a high degree of rigorous, technical training. Commercial transport training can not only safeguard the safety of those on the road but can also open up a valuable career path.
Look online and you’ll find several transport and training services which can offer your commercial transport training. It’s not hard to set up an LGV training school and so you should be careful when choosing your training company, opting for a well experienced, established service.
Many haulage companies will offer training services as a sideline, usually they train their own drivers and so will have a well-tested training infrastructure in place. These kinds of places are a great place to train and you will be able to benefit from their experience and infrastructure.
You should also look for various qualifications, for instance you should look for registration at the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic training, and other qualifications such as SQA, OCR and ALLMI. If you are looking for health and safety training you should check to see if there is an CSCS health and safety training centre.
Once you have been trained then you will be able to start your career as a fully fledged driver, which is a great career taking you all around Europe and working as part of a highly efficient, professional team.
