How much does HGV/LGV training cost?

There are many factors that will affect the price will pay for your HGV training. These include such things as location and duration of the course.

When choosing a course, the most influencing aspect will undoubtedly be the price. Brokers, who pass their training bookings onto local firms, will generally charge more in order to make their cut. This is reason why it really does pay to go direct to a local established HGV training company. Potential students should aim to look what training firms can offer for the price such as the quality of the training fleet and the qualifications of the instructor leading the course.

HGV Training Locations

The location of a training centre can be responsible for a difference in price for what appears to be a similar course.

One region may have several training companies in close proximity, meaning there will be a level of competition between the firms and this may be reflected in the price. Geographical placing will also have an effect; For example a course run in the Scottish Highlands may cost less than a course delivered in the South east of England.

HGV Training Course Duration

The length of the course and the additional assessments required will also determine the price of your LGV training. For example, some training firms may offer a set five day course while others may charge an hourly rate for one to one training until the candidate is ready to sit the driving test.

Also it is worth noting that most HGV training companies will offer the complete package, i.e. LGV medical, LGV theory training, LGV theory tests, practical HGV driver training and Driver CPC practical training and test. So if you can get a price for the whole thing as opposed to just the 5 day driving course then all the better.
