Currently, it is estimated that there is a shortfall of as many as 90,000 trained truck drivers in the UK caused by a combination of Brexit, changes to rules and lockdown preventing training of new drivers for much of the last 18 months.
A gig economy and largely increased online shopping has led to a massive demand for delivery /multi drop drivers. This situation puts employers in a position of not having a large base of candidates to choose from. This means that now may be the perfect time to think about driving a lorry for a living.
Roadwise offers a range of driver LGV Training services that are designed to provide delegates with the maximum opportunity to practice the skills necessary to pass the appropriate DVSA driving test.
The Category C driving licence allows people to drive rigid vehicles up to 32 tonnes. These vehicles can include bin wagons, tippers, flat-beds and curtain-sided vehicles. The course content is aimed at fully preparing candidates by teaching them the correct driving techniques and procedures to reach the standard required in order to pass a DVSA driving test. Courses are delivered in a class 2 (rigid) lorry. Due to Covid-19 training is conducted on a 1:1 basis.

When a candidate passes a Category C driving test, they also have the automatic entitlement to drive vehicles in Category C1.
