Drivers of Large Goods Vehicles (LGVs), must ensure the safety of their driving and the security of their loads. The thorough DVSA category C licence aquisition process, as well as driver CPC are part of the government's policy of continual development. LGV operators must assess their vehicles, loads, processes and drivers as a part of their H&S duties and O-licence requirements.

Beyond Driving provide category C LGV driver assessment services for interview and the Management of Occupational Road Risk (MORR), as well as category C licence aquisition and CPC courses for drivers of rigid LGVs.

Working with employers, we will often provide training in the workplace, aimed at reducing maintenance, fuel and insurance costs. Responding to your risk assessment (through vehicle tracking and driver records), we are able to run both classroom and in-vehicle training courses.
