Category C LGV/HGV Class 2 Driver Training Oxfordshire.

Think all HGV training companies in Oxfordshire are the same?

We’re different!

Pass your HGV Class 2 driving test in Oxfordshire in just 2 and a half days. Our unique training philosophy enables us to offer the shortest courses, so you don’t need to waste time on an artificially long course that you don’t need, combined with the highest pass rates.

How do we do it? Read on to find out.

The rules around HGV training have changed significantly in the last few years, this is due to a rule change for vehicles allowed on test. It is now possible to take your lorry driving test in an automatic truck and still get a full manual entitlement!

HGV Driver Training Oxfordshire

Haulage companies across Europe have been phasing out manual trucks in favour of easier to drive, more reliable and fuel efficient automatics for some time now. In fact if you’re ordering a new lorry it will be an automatic, you would need to pay extra to special order a manual gearbox, that’s if it’s even available as an option at all. Yet many training companies are still using old fashioned manual trucks, despite the vast majority of haulage fleets being fully automatic. As automatic lorries are much easier to drive than manuals, your chances of passing the test are hugely improved when you train in an auto.

Because of the complicated gearboxes on older, manual lorries you would previously need to take a four or five day training course to pass your HGV test. You would be paired up with someone else for a weeks training course then go for test at the end of the week.

Not any more!

When you do your HGV driver training in Oxfordshire with us you can complete your driving course and test in just 2 and a half days. The advantage of using easy to drive automatic lorries and only ever training on a one to one basis means that we can keep the course short and the price down.

It’s never been easier to pass your HGV driving test.

We provide lorry driver training courses from the test centre at Culham, near Abingdon to  customers from Oxford, Newbury, Didcot, Bicester, Reading, Wallingford, Witney, Wantage, Swindon, Burford, High Wycombe, Chipping Norton and across Oxfordshire and beyond. The test routes take in The Oxford Ring Road, with views of Oxford’s famous University and Magdalen Colleges in the distance, don’t worry – no test routes go into Oxford City Centre itself, you’ll be driving on the A34 and the roads around South Oxfordshire, as we criss cross the River Thames and the Vale of White Horse during your training. It’s a very nice part of the world to be driving around!

The 7 Things You NEED To Know When Choosing Your HGV Training Provider

1 - Beware The Broker!

Many of the training companies you will find on Google are not training companies at all, they are brokers. They will portray themselves as training companies but actually have no vehicles, no instructors and no training experience. You will likely spend much more by going through a broker than going directly to the training company. Always check the companies website for sign written vehicles (watch out for photoshops!) and ask if you can visit the driving school. You are welcome to visit us at our offices in Banbury or at our training locations at Weedon or Abingdon. Just ring ahead so we can make sure that we have a vehicle available for you to see and sit in. If you've already got your provisional you can also have a drive. Beware of any company that won't allow this or is cagey when asked.

2 - 2 to 1 Training.

There are very few HGV training companies that train with just one student to one instructor - most will pair up their students and train 2 to 1. We think that one to one training is essential to really understand the way you learn and avoid diluting your time by pairing you up with someone you've never met before. It sounds great when you are offered a 5 day course, but you will be sharing that time with another customer, so you will only get half of that. And if that person is much less competent than you they could actually eat in to your time if they need extra help.

3 - Who's Training You?

It's a little known fact that anyone can train people to drive a lorry, providing they have held a licence for the specified time. You need no instructional ability, just buy a truck, stick some L-plates on it and you're an HGV Driver Trainer! We're different. We only use experienced Driving Instructors who have not only proven their own driving skills to a high standard but have also undergone extensive training in teaching driving skills. We are committed to ensuring the best possible levels of instruction as part of our continued in house instructor development programme. ADI's are also government tested regularly to ensure they maintain their high standards, this is not just some in house ride along from another instructor, but a Government Enforcement Officer will regularly assess the instructors ability and could strip their driving instructors qualification from them if they are sub-standard.

4 - Automatic Trucks.

If you've never driven a lorry before you may be surprised to learn that lorry gearboxes are completely different to the ones found in your car. Trying to use an 8 speed gearbox, a four over four or range changer can be mind boggling for someone who's new to lorry driving! We only use automatic trucks that are so much easier to drive than their manual counterparts, meaning that we can keep the course lengths shorter and the costs down - and you don't have to worry about learning to use a complicated gearbox for your test. You'll still get a full manual entitlement even if you train in an automatic truck, so why make it harder for yourself? Automatic trucks are now the industry standard for haulage companies, manual gearboxes are being phased out.

5 - Friendly instructors.

We only use professional, friendly instructors who are determined to provide the best support possible in getting you through your test. We guarantee that your trainer will never ever shout at you or make you feel stupid for making mistakes, that's just part of learning. We're really proud of our customer reviews

6 - Check Locations.

When choosing an HGV training company, location plays a big part right? Why travel further than necessary to reach your training company. It seems very logical to choose someone local to you, until you turn up for your training and find out that you need to spend the first and last hour of your training time travelling to and from the test area. Not such a great use of time we think you'll agree. We start our training from the test centre, so you don't have to spend a big chunk of your paid-for time travelling to get to the training area. The moment you drive out of our yard you are driving on a test route. It makes perfect sense to drive to the training area yourself and meet your trainer there, rather than waste your course time driving back and forth.

7 - More than just driver training!

Most LGV training companies won't really be interested in talking to you until you have completed your medical, got your provisional and done your theory test. We think that you should get support all the way, so we'll organise all of that for you, including arranging your medical with a specialist doctor, giving access to the latest DVSA online revision material (not just lending you a scruffy book and copied DVD!), we'll support you with the DVLA licence application paperwork, as well as provide all your tests and practical training.

You are welcome to do these steps independently if you prefer and just come to us for the practical driving element, but having a one stop, all inclusive service takes the stress out of qualifying and gives you a single point of contact, ready to help you every step of the way.

Our customer reviews speak for themselves.

Everyone was really approachable at Nearway Driving. If there were ever any queries it was super easy to give them a call and they were always willing to help. Friendly instructors with great tips to help you pass the test!

Emma EllisEmma Ellis

I chose Nearway because of all the great reviews it has and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family, I want to say a big thank you to Kevin for all his help.

Sandra CarderSandra Carder

I arrived for my towing course totally lacking in confidence after a jockey wheel collapse and unhitching problem with my newly acquired caravan, but Neil soon put me at ease with excellent advice on the road of where I was going wrong and praise when I was doing right. We also covered reversing, hitching and unhitching, driving in town and country roads to experience towing a trailer. I now have more confidence towing my caravan to a rally this weekend than I had before. Thanks Neil!

Sharon-chelsey barsonSharon-chelsey barson

Highly recommend them great company 👌👌👌👌

Amanda LeighAmanda Leigh

My son Harry recently passed his driving test with three minor faults. He has been taking lessons with Neil at Nearway since July 2018. I cannot recommend Neil highly enough. He is very pleasant and efficient to deal with (in terms of booking lessons, etc.) and Harry liked him from the word go and enjoyed learning from him. Neil is patient, very clear in his instruction and gives positive feedback, which is motivating. Harry had a very valuable motorway lesson with Neil yesterday and while he is, of course, delighted to be a fully-fledged driver, we will both miss Neil!

Tom CastleTom Castle

Passed my hgv class 2 first time with nearway, would definitely recommend!!

Kirsty SquiresKirsty Squires

Our trainer Kim was patient, knowledgeable, considerate and supportive. Without her I would not have passed my B+E trailer test. I would highly recommend Kim and Nearway. Loads of info up front, great communication, easy and straightforward to book. Thanks guys!

Ryan ForknallRyan Forknall

Did my C1 2 day course with Neil, despite all the other drama gojng on in the world, Neil was very friendly, knowledgeable and ultimately very approachable with and query or question. From the initial booking through to the practice theory and on to the practical there was always an answer to any questions. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to add additional qualifications to their driving license

Adam GaleAdam Gale
