About Us.

Our Story.

Throughout my life I have always been involved with the transport industry, driving large vehicles is in my blood.

My first experience of trucks was as a small child sitting in the passenger seat of an articulated lorry and at the first opportunity, aged 18, I gained my HGV Class 1 Licence.

That was more than 30 years ago and since then I have spent my working life driving vehicles of all kinds, from the proverbial white van to 110t articulated trucks, from tippers to tankers, wagon and drag through to road trains in the outback of Australia.

Being behind the wheel of a truck can make you feel invincible but it’s vital that you always remember you’re in control of a very large, heavy and dangerous vehicle. This was brought home to me at a very young age when my Dad suffered life changing injuries after being involved in a serious accident while driving his truck. From that day, safety while driving has always been at the forefront of my mind.

Whether you call yourself a truck driver, lorry driver, or trucker, once you have gained your LGV Licence you will be a professional driver with a duty not only to ensure the vehicle you are driving is safe and legal to use on the road but to ensure that all other road users and pedestrians are safe.

Our aim at LGV Training Bristol is to share the knowledge and experience gained over more than 30 years on the road to get you off to the best start possible in your new career.

Sam, August 2020. 
Just recently passed my CAT C license with Rich. Passed first time with only 2 "Faults" I found Rich to be a very professional instructor, he is very attentive and certainly knows what he's doing. One to one training which is perfect, as he can tailor the whole day around you & you gain a great experience driving the truck. Rich is very easy to get along with, has a wealth of experience behind behind him and this truly goes to show throughout the training. The truck is lovely to drive its great size as its not the smallest available but not the biggest so you gain an amazing real life experience, its flawlessly clean throughout everyday! Great location, straight out the yard and your onto the many test routes you have to drive on, which is great as there is no time wasted. Great price, no agency fee, no large company, just a man providing awesome training at a brilliant price. Highly recommended! Thank you Rich, legend!

Kestas, July 2020. 
I highly recommend this training centre. Rich is nice guy, he's very calm and confident, lessons easy and straight forward. I came to him already having C1 license, we had little test run and he was able to determine my biggest mistakes and we sorted them very easy. He knows what he's doing. I'm looking forward to hold artic with Rich in few months.

Mike, February 2020. Rich is an excellent trainer. I initially considered going with one of the larger companies but once I'd had a chat with Rich on the phone I realised he was going to offer me a more personalised service. Out on the road he was very thorough and by the time it came to my test I knew exactly what I had to do to pass it and felt he genuinely cared. Really chuffed I passed first time.

Andy, February 2020.  I would Highly recommend Rich he’s genuinely a really nice guy he has a lot of real world experience under his belt and it made the process so much easier all the instructions were crystal clear and anything that I needed to work on or wasn’t confident about we did until I felt ready the lorry was a absolute pleasure to drive and very nice to manoeuvre all in all the process from start to finish was very professional and I honestly don’t think I could of done as well as I did without the help if LGV Training Bristol. I’ll definitely be back if you get a artic for my class 1. Thanks again!
