HGV Driver Training Dorset

Our local HGV fleet of training vehicles are based near Bournemouth airport, and therefore we are in easy reach of the HGV testing areas in Bournemouth and Poole.

Whether you’re a new starter, updating your license or looking for some extra training, our team of experienced HGV driving instructors will be able to help you achieve your dreams of becoming an HGV driver.

We cater to the following categories: C1 (7.5t), C1+E (7.5t + trailer) C (Ridged), C+E (Articulated) and D1 (Minibus).

We can even tailor a direct car-to-C+E training course for you as required.

Our courses are generally tailored to fit your needs.

To give you some idea of costs, the prices below are quoted based on the average number of training hours for each category.

  Total Novice : Car Driver to C+E, 26 to 30 hours: £2556/£2950, including vat and test fees

  Total Novice: Car Driver to Cat C, 18 to 20 hours: £1850/£2055, including vat and test fees

  Total Novice Car Driver to C1: 10 to 15 hours: £940/£1410 including vat and test fees

  Total Novice Car Driver to C1+E, 15 to 30 hours: £1275/£2550 including vat and test fees

  Total Novice Car Driver to Cat D, 10 to 12 hours: £940/£1410 including vat and test fees

These prices may vary depending on how many hours of training you require, which is dependent on your driving ability.  Less hours of training, and the cost will reduce!

Please be aware that courses need to be paid in full 14 days before the start date of training.

A deposit of £250 will be required. It is not possible to book without a deposit.

We would strongly recommend you take a 2-hour starter session before training. This gives you an opportunity to experience driving a larger vehicle before committing to a full course.  It also gives us an opportunity to review your driving skills with regards to the number of hours of training we feel you will need to be test-ready.

Great communication while organising the course and explaining what needs to be done. Really friendly, supportive people made it fun and enjoyable. Felt fully prepared for the tests in a short space of time and now confident on the roads on my own.
