The Complete HGV Package

Obtaining an HGV licence is achieved in several steps, beginning with a medical and ending with the receipt of a full HGV licence and/or a Driver CPC card.  In between these stages are various modules and examinations to complete, (including Initial Driver CPC where applicable) as well as paperwork and driver training.

This all may sound a little daunting but EP Training are on hand to assist.  Our staff can help fill out the paperwork, arrange the medical and provide all the necessary practical and theoretical training ahead of the exams.

Initial Driver CPC

Students that go on to use their vocational HGV licence for hire and reward purposes will need to obtain a Driver CPC card.

Initial Driver CPC is covered under modules 2 and 4 of the practical LGV course structure and once the initial CPC course element has been passed, students will receive their Driver Qualification Cards (DQCs) which will be valid for five years. Prior to the expiry date of their DQCs, students will either need to enrol on five separate Periodic Driver CPC training courses or a single intensive course in order to have their cards re-issued.

Further details on our Periodic Driver CPC courses can be found on the dedicated website page.

HGV Training Surrey

In addition to training facilities in Great Bookham, Surrey,  we also have further amenities in Addlestone, Guildford and Cranleigh and access to a large, off-road training area that allows for plenty of opportunity to practice and conduct HGV manoeuvres to perfection.  All practical examinations will take place at the testing station in Guildford and tutors will ensure students are given plenty of time out on the local roads and potential test routes.

Below are the options available from EP Training.  All courses can be purchased online via our secure website.
