If you want to drive an Eddie Stobart truck but haven’t got the licence(s) you need, we can provide you with the training required to put on the famous green shirt. Eddie Stobart only employs C+E licence holders, so whether you’ve never driven an LGV or you’re just looking to upgrade your current LGV categories, we can design a bespoke programme for you.
Why train with Eddie Stobart?
Training with us gives you everything you need to get on the road, with access to the full range of theory and practical training and tests needed – it even includes your full Driver CPC Qualification (DQC). Once you complete your training, we’ll even guarantee you an interview at a site near you to help you get started.
What does the training look like?
We offer a number of options to suit each LGV licence requirement. One of our experienced, DSA registered LGV instructors will be with you every step of the way to guide you and help you learn at a pace comfortable for you:
|Full Cat C & C+E||CAT C+E only upgrade|
|Entry requirements||Full Car Licence||Cat C LGV Licence|
|Stage 1: Theory, hazard perception and case study training (5 days)||Yes||No|
|Stage 2: Practical licence acquisition for CAT C licence (5 days)||Yes||No|
|Stage 3: Practical licence acquisition for CAT C+E licence (5 days)||Yes||Yes|
|Stage 4: Mod 4 practical training & Mod 2 case study (2 days)||Yes||Yes|
|Total Cost (inc. VAT)||£2,880||£1,440|
*Dependent upon your licence permissions, your training may not require the additional CPC module elements. Our training team are able to advise you on the necessary elements based on your current licence details.
Also available are stand-alone training modules 2 and 4 (£180 each inc. VAT).
Do we offer just Cat C (Class 2)?
Unfortunately we only operate C+E vehicles across our fleet, so we’re unable to provide training for just Cat C.
What happens when you pass?
Once you complete your training, your driver trainer will work closely with our operations teams to secure and schedule your guaranteed interview at the closest available site to you. If you pass your interview, we’ll do everything we can to get you on board as soon as possible.
If you have any further questions or would like to discuss your requirements / application, please contact a member of the team on 01925 606981, option 2.
