GTG Training have an exciting opportunity for you to join our LGV Category C Driver Training programme in conjunction with Renfrewshire Council.

If you are keen to pursue a new career opportunity within the Transport & Logistics Industry, GTG will provide the training for you to achieve your Category C Licence. GTG will also assist with setting up an employer interview upon completion of the training.

Candidates referred onto the programme will 1st be taken through our recruitment & selection pre-screening interview by a member of our Employability Team. This is to check that the following eligibility criteria apply:

  • Hold a valid Driving Licence (CAT B)
  • Have a minimum of 12 months driving experience
  • Have no more than 6 penalty points
  • Have no DD/DR (Drink / Drug) offences on their licence
  • Candidates must be able to pass the DVLA LGV medical
  • Have a medical history which will not cause a delay in the licence being returned from the DVLA

The Training Programme timeline is detailed below:

Week 1 – 2

In order for candidates to obtain their provisional entitlement on their licence, GTG will arrange for the required medical to be carried out at GTG Glasgow. GTG will ensure that all application paperwork is completed prior to posting to the DVLA. Candidates will be issued with their theory test study login details; this will enable candidates to begin their self-study at home. As part of the ongoing support, the central point of contact at GTG can access the portal which will allow us to monitor the candidate progress.

Week 3 – 4

Learners will attend a Mock Theory Session at GTG. The theory revision session will help & support candidates to ensure they are fully prepared for the theory tests. It will give candidates the opportunity to identify any weaknesses & will provide development in their knowledge & understanding of certain elements of the theory tests with our LGV Instructor.

 Week 5 – 7

 GTG will have dates pre-booked at the local DVSA Theory Test centre. Candidates who have had their licence returned by the DVLA following their medical, will have a date confirmed for their tests to take place.

Candidates will be involved in a maximum 2 week work experience placement. The Work Experience is an integral component of the Programme to assist candidates in getting back into a working environment & to enhance job prospects.

Weeks 8 – 10

Upon successful completion of the theory tests, candidates will be booked to attend 5 days Category C Practical Training at GTG Glasgow. These dates will have already been pre-booked for the candidate. The training ratio for LGV Training is 2 trainees to 1 instructor. Whilst on the driver training, a daily review will be carried out by the instructor. This will enable them to determine if there are any other support or training requirements. Any issues will be dealt with on an individual basis to determine what actions are to be taken.

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
