If you would like learn how to drive a lorry or large goods vehicle (LGV), then this five-day course is the perfect place to begin. It will help guide anyone who holds a valid car license through the necessary steps to prepare for work as a professional lorry driver.
You’ll be completing both theoretical and practical elements as you study the topics required to get an LGV Category ‘C’ licence. This will include advice and support on your licence application and any relevant medicals you need to take, preparation and tests to cover modules 1 to 4 on the driver CPC course and practical driver training.
The practical elements will focus on defensive driving skills and your reversing ability, but you’ll also look at how to unload and load up safely, as well as benefitting from an introduction to Banksman techniques.
You’ll need to hold a full UK licence with category B to enrol on this course. Having a provisional category C and CE would be extremely beneficial.
How will I be assessed?
You’ll be able to sit the four modules that make up the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). These include both theory tests and practical driving assignments.
Continuing Your Journey
If you complete all four modules of the Driver CPC assessment, you’ll gain a full category C licence and a Driver Qualification Card, which will allow you to drive lorries and LGVs professionally.Careers page
You’ll be able to work in the logistics industry and earn a successful living as a professional driver, competent and confident in your skills and knowledge of transport regulations. You could even continue onto an LGV Category CE Licence Acquisition course with us at The Manchester College if you want to develop your abilities further.
