Frequently Asked Questions
How much does HGV training in Edinburgh cost?
As each service from the HGV Training Network is completely bespoke, you will need to provide more information before we can give you a quote for HGV or LGV driver training in Edinburgh.
The reasons for this are twofold:
Every learner has a range of previous driving qualifications
Every learner will have different experience levels
Therefore, we are unable to give a generalised price breakdown, as these factors mean that the training program for one learner can be completely different from the training program of another.

Where will I complete my HGV training in Edinburgh?
HGVTN have one main training centre located in the heart of Edinburgh city centre, not far from Edinburgh Waverley train station and within walking distance of Edinburgh bus station. – making it perfect for those who need to commute into the city to begin their training.
This central location will make it easier for commuting learners to complete their training, as it helps to avoid traffic jams and potentially cuts down commuting time.
With over 50 locations across the UK, here at HGV Training Network we are guaranteed to have a training centre near you.
Browse the full list of our locations or contact us if you’d like more information on a particular location, including a full address.
How long will it take to retrain as an HGV driver?
Depending on how much experience you have and where you start your training journey with HGVTN, the exact amount of time it will take you to retrain will vary.
For trainees who have already completed their medical and theory tests, it can take as little as 5 days to begin their new career. For others, including those starting the process completely afresh, it could take around a month.
It all depends on how much, or how little, experience you currently have.
Don’t be disheartened, though. Here at HGVTN, we have experience working with trainee drivers of all types, so we can offer the support and expertise needed to help you pass the first time and get out on the open road.

Which vehicles can I learn to drive with HGV training in Edinburgh?
With HGV training in Edinburgh, you have a choice of three sizes of vehicles, which relate to the licence you need. These include:
7.5 Ton Cat C1 licence – designed for rigid vehicles weighing up to 7.5 tonnes, sometimes referred to as final mile lorries. Also ideal for ambulances and horse boxes.
Class 2 Cat C licence – designed for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes with rigid bases that do not exceed 32T. Ideal for driving in cities and towns and also for those looking to drive fire engines or bin lorries.
Class 1 Cat C + E licence – designed for the largest vehicles on the road, this licence covers all vehicles up to 44 tonnes with a detachable trailer. Typically used for longer motorway routes.
For more information about which vehicle training is best for you, simply call or email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our friendly advisors will gladly discuss your options and career plans to help you make a final decision.
Do I need to do a medical test to drive an HGV in Edinburgh?
All learners wishing to train as an HGV driver will need to complete a medical assessment before they begin any other training.
This ensures they are healthy enough to complete long journeys in heavy goods vehicles and will not pose a risk to themselves or others – limiting the chance of a health-related road traffic accident.
A medical assessment is the first step for any learner, which means that if the DVLA doesn’t deem you fit to drive, you won’t have already put a lot of time into a new career.
Our team at HGVTN can arrange your medical test and support you throughout the process, putting your mind at ease.
For more information about the medical test, you can call or email us today at email@example.com. Our friendly advisors can answer any question you may have and start the process for you if you wish to proceed.
Can I complete HGV training in Edinburgh even if I don’t live there?
With over 50 locations across the UK, there will be a local site for pretty much everyone looking to complete HGV or LGV training, no matter where they live.
While most people choose to attend the closest training site to their home, your choice of training location is completely up to you. You just need to be able to reliably commute to the training facility during your week of practical training.
If you think you might run into problems commuting, it may be worth rethinking which training centre is best for you, as delayed starts will directly affect your learning.
