Training in Edinburgh

Interested in HGV training in Edinburgh? An HGV refers to large commercial vehicles that weigh more than 3.5 tonnes. Drivers who want to apply as HGV or LGV drivers are required to undergo training that lasts depending on the duration of the course. These courses require them to take practical tests and assessments before being granted a licence.

HGV or LGV courses have various categories which future drivers of heavy vehicles need to know like C, C1, and C + E and C1 +E. These categories are in accordance with vehicle weight as well as type.
