HGV driving test passed showing candidate with test pass certificate

To be eligible to take this test you must be 18 years old or over, entitled to drive a C vehicle by having passed your Category C (HGV Class Two) rigid bodied truck driving test (check the reverse of your drivers licence) and take the following steps.



1.
Contact us to book your driver training course as suggested by a driving assessment or if you haven't had/can't have an assessment book a course duration you and ourselves feel will be sufficient to enable you to pass your LGV C+E Driving Test.



The driving test will last approximately 60 minutes, during which you will be required to complete a reversing exercise (see the picture below), uncouple from the trailer - then safely recouple the combination, then drive onto the roads during which you will complete uphill, downhill and angled starts, together with a controlled stop and moving away from the side of road in traffic.

The Trailer is laden with 8000kg of ballast load, which is required by law for the driving test due to an EU Regulation brought in to make the test more realistic. The mandatory 8 Intermediate Bulk Containers are filled with water and secured to prevent any movement during a driving lesson. The IBC's are placed for maximum stability and traction, 4 are placed at the front of the trailer and 4 are positioned over the trailer wheels. It is important to ensure the weight is distributed to ensure the truck has traction for moving away but also the trailer wheels have traction for safe braking with little chance of a jacknife situation.







Letters of Thanks from customers.

Dear Mike
Unfortunately, I did not manage to see you last Thursday to thank you personally for your help in getting me through my test. (I believe you were busy with the alarm man), but all your encouraging words and advice were much appreciated in helping me to succeed and pass my C+E test first time.

The reversing exercise wasn't exactly carried out to a textbook standard and I did have to use your 'recovery' techniques. Careful planning and some minor corrections (based on your philosophy of looking at everything as a problem to solve), focussed me on the task of slotting that trailer into the bay - even if I did have to use a couple of forward moves just to be sure. The positioning of the rear of the trailer in the yellow box was dead central which I was pleased about! Two other minor mistakes that I made were my own silly fault - forgetting to move the low range lever down when doing my first hill start, and then approaching a roundabout a bit too quickly in the early stages of the test. I did however, remember to check that left mirror before turning!

The training given from yourself and your staff was excellent. Using a good clean easy to drive vehicle made the job that much easier. I especially appreciated all the extra advice, tips, and information that were given to help me to progress after my test. I am sure this will be extremely beneficial when I work for an employer driving artics. The administration side of the training was also first class. My e-mails and enquiries were dealt with straight away.

Your calm friendly manner, vast knowledge, and interesting conversation, made my training extremely enjoyable. I certainly had excellent value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending Tockwith Training to anyone wishing to undergo any form of driver training.

Thanks again.

Tim Wilson, 10th July 2010.

Sucessful trainee that passed his HGV Driving Test




In this video Matt Alwright presents "You've Been Scammed", don't get caught out, use a local school like Tockwith Training.



A series that highlight scams. In this particular episode Matt talks to 23 year old Steve who paid £2400 to HGV/LGV training broker. The company promised Steve, HGV training as well as a job after passing his test and at the time they seemed like a very professional company. In reality this HGV training broker only provided a medical and theory tests. Steve was left out of pocket with no licence and no job. The advice that comes from this programme is visit the training provider before you part with any money. Use a local reputable provider and avoid those who claim to be national providers as they don't exist.
