How long will it take to retrain as an HGV driver?
The exact amount of time it takes to retrain will vary from person to person, depending on your driving experience level and where you are up to in your training journey.
For trainees who only need to complete their practical training and tests, it should take just 5 days to complete their practical training and start a new career as an HGV or LGV driver. Trainees starting afresh should expect to spend around a month retraining – which compared to other professions is incredible!
Here at HGVTN, we have the expertise to work with trainee drivers of all experience levels and can offer all of the support and expertise you need to get out on the open road as soon as possible.

What else can I do once I complete HGV training in Stoke-on-Trent?
It’s true that the vast majority of our learners go on to enjoy long, fulfilling careers driving LGVs or HGVs. However, some of our drivers prefer variety and go on to explore other driving careers.
Your HGV licence (and some further training) allows you to explore a range of careers, including professional driving in:
- PCVs – Passenger Carrying Vehicles, such as coaches or buses
- Ambulances and fire engines
- HIABs – lorry-mounted crane or lorry loader
- Refuse or recycling lorries
- ADR – a dangerous goods vehicle driver, allowing you to carry goods that may be flammable, toxic, or radioactive!
Many of these driving jobs can be with private companies, or with national infrastructure like the NHS or Fire Service and come with a wide range of benefits for drivers – alongside a great salary.
To see where HGV driving could take you, reach out to our friendly team today. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our enquiry form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Which vehicles can I learn to drive with HGV training in Stoke-on-Trent?
With HGV training in Stoke-on-Trent, you have a choice of three sizes of vehicles and three corresponding licences. These include:
- 7.5 Ton Cat C1 licence – for rigid vehicles weighing up to 7.5 tonnes, sometimes referred to as final mile lorries. These are popular for delivery workers but can also include ambulance and horsebox drivers.
- Class 2 Cat C licence – for vehicles over 7.5 tonnes with rigid bases that do not exceed 32T. These lorries are best for driving in cities and towns and allow learners to drive fire engines or bin lorries.
- Class 1 Cat C + E licence – for those wishing to drive the largest vehicles on the road, this licence covers all vehicles up to 44 tonnes with a detachable trailer. The HGVs are usually used for longer haul, motorway routes but can travel across the world.
For more information about which vehicle training is best for you, simply call or email us today at email@example.com. Our friendly advisors will gladly discuss your options and career plans to help you make a final decision.
Is driving an HGV very difficult?
Due to their sheer size and the intimidation factor that comes from HGVs, many people assume they will be very tricky to drive.
But that’s why we’re here. Our HGV driver training equips you with the confidence and skills you need to handle articulated vehicles that are considerably wider, taller, and longer than domestic vehicles – so once you have that down, you’ll be good to go.
If they were more difficult to handle, your practical training would take much longer than 5 days to complete – so try not to be overwhelmed before you get behind the wheel.
For more information about HGV driving in practice, call or email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our friendly advisors can answer any question you may have and start the process for you at your local training centre.
