Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to do a medical test to drive an HGV?
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 do not pose a risk to themselves or others – limiting the chance of a health-related road traffic accident.
A medical is the first step for any learner, which means that if the DVLA do not deem you fit to drive, you won’t have put a lot of time into a new career.
Our team at HGVTN can arrange your medical and support you throughout the process, helping keep 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 when you wish to proceed.
Can I learn to drive very large vehicles such as fire engines and bin lorries?
Training with HGVTN is an ideal way to gain the Class 2 Category C license you will need to drive vehicles including fire engines and bin lorries.
Whether you need the license for work, or to complete voluntary work for your village or town, we can help you get the qualifications you need.
The Class 2 Category C license covers all vehicles with a cab and trailer fixed permanently together – referred to as a rigid vehicle.
This is not covered with a standard UK car license, so will require a medical, theory, and practical test – followed by a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) test if you plan to drive a large vehicle for work.
Which vehicles can I learn to drive with HGV training in Newcastle?
With HGV training in Newcastle, you have a choice of three sizes of vehicles, which relate to the license you need. These include:
- 7.5 Ton Cat C1 license – designed for rigid vehicles weighing up to 7.5 tonnes, sometimes referred to as final mile lorries. This is also ideal for ambulances and horse boxes.
- Class 2 Cat C license – designed for vehicles over 7.5 tonnes with a rigid base that does not exceed 32T, ideal for driving in cities and towns. Ideal for those looking to drive fire engines or bin lorries.
- Class 1 Cat C + E license – designed for the largest vehicles on the road, this license covers all vehicles up to 44 tonnes with a detachable trailer. Usually completed 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 decision.
Will delays for driving tests mean delays for HGV driver training?
While there are currently long delays for DVSA car driving tests across the country, this will not slow down driving tests for LGV and HGV drivers.
This is for two reasons:
- The tests are different and are completed at different test centres – negating any chance of delays for you.
- The shortage of HGV drivers is causing the government to take measures – including being able to skip passing rigid lorry tests before learning to drive an articulated lorry.
This means that no matter your current position in your learning journey, you can expect to be taking the appropriate driving tests within 5 days of beginning your practical lessons – usually on Friday afternoon.
Where will I complete my HGV training in Newcastle?
There are two HGVTN training centres – one located in Durham and the other in the centre of Newcastle. So, whether you live in the heart of the city or just outside, you’ll be able to choose the most convenient centre for you.
This limits the amount of time you have to spend commuting, which can make you unnecessarily tired and put pressure on your home life during your training week.
With over 50 locations across the UK, here at HGV Training Network we are guaranteed to have a training centre near you.
Can I get a quote for HGV driver training in Newcastle before I start?

For this reason, we are unable to give a generalised price breakdown.
