The Best Option for HGV Driver Training Wareham Has to Offer

HGV or heavy goods vehicles is a classification that covers any commercial vehicle with a gross combined weight of 3,500kg and over. It is a widely used classification that is interchangeable with LGV (large goods vehicles). To operate such vehicles, you must obtain the necessary licence, and here at MSM Training, we provide HGV driver training in Wareham to help you accomplish this very task.

We don’t just provide these training courses to customers in Wareham. HGV driver training is also available to customers throughout Dorset, Hampshire and the South West. Whether you’re a private individual or an owner or representative of a haulage company, contact one of our DVSA qualified instructors to get the ball rolling. Our courses are a great way to start a new career or to build your team of HGV operators.

How Can Our Wareham HGV Driver Training Team be of Assistance?

When you enrol in one of our courses, you’ll start out in the classroom covering the theory behind operating a heavy goods vehicle. Once you’ve completed this segment, you’ll move out of the classroom and into the cabin of a full-sized heavy goods vehicle. HGV driver training in Wareham is delivered by fully qualified and certified experts. You’ll receive the wealth of their extensive knowledge, including advice and tips on how to be a safe and competent driver.

All courses are fully supervised and broken down into categories which you can read more about below:

Category CE Articulated HGV & Rigid & Drawbar Trailer

This qualification can be acquired in just five days and awards you with a full Category C (rigid HGV) licence at the end. In effect, this one licence covers five different categories, including:

  • Car and Trailer
  • 5 Tonne and Trailer
  • Minibus and Trailer
  • Bus/ Coach and Trailer
  • Rigid and Trailer

Upon passing this category of HGV driver training, Wareham motorists will be free to operate any rigid or articulated HGV with all trailer entitlements, including those listed above.

Category C Rigid HGV

Again, this licence can be acquired in just five days. At the conclusion of the course, you’ll be permitted to operate a vehicle in excess of 3.5-tonne MAM (Maximum Authorised Mass). You’ll be permitted to tow a trailer so long as it’s no larger than 750kg. Upon passing the test, you’ll also unlock your Category C1 licence too. With this licence, you’ll find that you have no upper weight limit on the Category C vehicles you can drive.

Category C1E 7.5 Tonne HGV & Trailer

This entitlement can be unlocked in just three days. Upon completing this HGV driver training in Wareham, you’ll be permitted to operate Category C1 vehicles while towing a trailer that can weigh no more than 750kg. Combined weight when the trailer is loaded cannot exceed 12 tonnes MAM, and the weight of the trailer cannot exceed that of the vehicle.

Motorists who obtained their drivers’ licence before 1997 will already have this category on their licence. However, a provisional must still be applied for, and this involves a theory test and medical examination.

Category C1 7.5 Tonne HGV

As with the previous entitlement, this can be unlocked in just three days and is a requirement for ambulance drivers. It replaces the old HGV Class 3 licence and allows the holder to operate vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes MAM. They can also tow trailers which must not exceed 750kg. There are certain prerequisites for this HGV driver training in Wareham which our team will be more than happy to assist you with.
