TNT Post, the UK’s second largest postal provider, has announced that it has begun offering LGV driver training in a variety of locations across the UK.
The company is offering courses for the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, introduced by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) in 2009 as a compulsory qualification for LGV drivers in the UK. The courses are DSA approved and once completed, drivers will receive a certificate to prove they have attended each module. They will then be issued with a Driver Qualification card by the DVLA on completion of the full 35 hours training.
LGV Driver Training is also available, where TNT Post offers a step-by-step approach to driving a Large Goods Vehicle, guiding drivers through the whole process, from medical examination to eventual test. The hassle-free training approach ensures drivers are prepared with the best material and training before undergoing their test.
In addition to driving specific courses, TNT Post also offers courses which refer to the legal, first aid, digital tachograph, safety, customer service, economy and fuel-related aspects of driving and are designed to help increase the efficiency and ability of staff.
The company has also introduced a Commercial Driver Training Department and Commercial Vehicle Workshop at its Rugby depot.
TNT Post’s Driver Training Programme is available at various training facilities across the UK including Rugby, Belfast, Bristol, Coatbridge, Denton, Iver, Leeds and Warrington.
Dean Hulse, Head of Transport for TNT Post, said:
“Driver training is yet another step TNT Post has taken towards catering for a huge variety of customer needs. I am confident that customers will find our driver training to be as reliable as our mail services and that it will be of huge benefit to thousands of drivers nationwide.
“Regardless of operation size, the high quality and innovative solutions TNT Post offer make it a premium training provider to improve the knowledge level, skills and efficiency of staff across a range of sectors.
“The training courses are flexible and can be adapted and specified to the bespoke needs of customers.”
