Our courses are designed to be flexible, so that a learner can either attend a block Bootcamp (typically 2 to 3 weeks) or alternatively on a part-time basis (such as one day a week over 16 weeks) to fit around other commitments.

Each Bootcamp consists not only of HGV driving lessons and up-to two attempts at the test, but, if applicable to the learners needs – theory test, Module 4, medical, Driver CPC, tacho card and a range of practical live workshops including manoeuvring, safe loading, pallet truck, manual handling, tail-lift, daily vehicle checks and drivers hours.
