LGV DRIVER TRAINING – CAT C, C+E and INITIAL DRIVER CPC

Using our specialised training vehicles, we offer high quality LGV driver training on a one-to-one basis, with experienced instructors who boast excellent pass rates. Our standard LGV timetables consist of 22 hours training which is broken down into five sessions of four hours. The remaining two hours training takes place before the test. However, we can happily arrange timetables that accommodate the needs of individuals.

CATEGORY C AND C+E Training

We also offer a discount for those drivers who wish to complete both their Category C and C+E training with us. It is well known that there is currently a national shortage of LGV drivers, this presents you with a fantastic opportunity of employment with a major blue chip organisation.

If you are interested in our LGV training or require any further information, then contact our office on 01469 577656 and speak to one of our trained advisers who will be happy to talk you through the whole process.

ADR DRIVER TRAINING

ADR is the carriage of dangerous goods by road within Europe and anyone wanting to do so is required by law to obtain a Vocational Training Certificate administered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority. The ADR Driver qualification lasts for five years and must then be renewed by refresher training no later than five weeks before the expiry date.

ONLINE EXAMS:

We now have online exams! Get your results on exam day and your ADR cards the following week. Combining this with what SQA have called “one of the best ADR instructors in the country”, Transafe Training have the winning combination.

THE ADR DRIVER COURSE IS BASED AROUND A SERIES OF MODULES:

Core – this gives a basic overview of dangerous goods – what they are, loading & unloading, security of loads, how they can react etc. Other topics covered include basic first aid, fire fighting and emergency procedures.

Tanks – covers the carriage of dangerous goods in road tanks and tank containers.

Packages – covers the carriage of dangerous goods in packages (apart from explosives or radioactives).

Classes – covering the seven main UN danger classes – Class 2 (Gases), Class 3 (Flammable liquids), Class 4 (Flammable solids), Class 5 (Oxidising), Class 6 (Toxics), Class 8 (Corrosives) & Class 9 (Miscellaneous)

Explosives (Class 1) and Hazardous Goods Awareness are one-day courses and details are available on request.
