They’ll be able to advise you on the dates that we have available and book you on the course dates that are convenient to you.

On the first day, our DVSA qualified instructor can assess your current skills and work out what you need to work on to become a competent class 1 driver. They should be able to tell you how many days of lessons you’ll need before you’ll be ready for your test- most people benefit from 3-5 days of intensive training. They’ll also be able to work out the best teaching methods for you so you can learn effectively throughout the course.

We will leave no stone unturned throughout the duration of you class 1 driver training course, ensuring that you’re well practised on every element that will come up in your test. We’ll make sure that you’re completely confident in the following elements before we tell you to take your test, so your likelihood of passing is at its highest.

  • Vehicle safety
  • Reading the road and anticipation
  • Use of the controls in an articulated lorry
  • Awareness and planning
  • Reversing
  • Coupling and un-coupling the trailer
  • Trailer safety
  • De-briefs

Once you’re competent with all the above elements and you’ve passed your test, you’ll be automatically entitled to drive all types of vehicles including:

  • Light and heavy lorries
  • Any vehicle with a trailer
  • Buses and coaches

All in all, you’ll essentially benefit from gaining 5 licences in 1 test, making the cost of carrying out a class 1 driving training course well worth the money.
