HGV Skills Bootcamp

Logistics UK is proud to be part of the Government’s Skills Bootcamps – part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. We are working in partnership with HGVC and Manpower to create the Driver Academy Group.


The HGV Skills Bootcamp offers fully-funded training for a limited number of candidates in the HGV driving sector that will lead to job opportunities upon completion.  


You might be completely new to driving, or a current licence holder who wants to upskill or simply needs a refresher of your training. Whatever your level of experience, there’s a course for you:

  • Novice – A course designed for newcomers to the sector that will train you to be a certified Category C or C+E driver.
  • Licence Upgrade – designed for existing Cat C drivers to upgrade their licence to Cat C+E / Class 1, to drive any vehicle over 7.5t with a detachable trailer.
  • ADR – Hazardous Goods (ADR) training + Petroleum Passport Qualification.
  • Refresher Training – Refresher courses are designed for existing HGV drivers to improve your skills and confidence behind the wheel.


Once enrolled into the HGV Skills Bootcamp, you will progress through the Driver Academy – a bespoke programme which equips students with the necessary training, certification and employment support to help you launch a safe and successful career as a HGV driver.
