Our team work extremely hard to deliver the highest quality of training to our customers, no matter what their driving needs are. We are approved by the DVSA and dedicated members of the
FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) and JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit For Periodic Training).
Our courses are usually put together once the assessment driving ranging from 1 to 3 days has been completed and is based on the skills that are assessed here. Training takes place between 8.30 am and 12.30 pm in the mornings and 12.30pm to 4.30pm in the afternoons. Tests happen on the last day of your training, giving you plenty of time to prepare.
Category C1 Courses
At Paul Williams Training Services we provide 7.5 tonne
C1 courses and offer our own C1 vehicle to use for the test. C1 category typically refers to vehicles between 3,500 and 7,500 kg in weight, with a trailer of up to 750 kg. Any driver who passes this test will be able to drive rigid vehicles which weigh up to 7.5 tonnes. Vehicles in this category include LGVs such as delivery vans and we tend to train a lot of paramedic and ambulance personnel. Sometimes smaller horse boxes can come under this category if you passed your test after 1997, so it is worth checking which driving license you need for your vehicles.
Our C1 vehicle has a 6-speed gearbox, large mirrors for observation around the vehicle whilst stationary and driving, and a small mirror for the examiner to use during the test. A camera system has also been fitted to the rear of the vehicle to help whilst reversing, which is especially helpful when reversing onto the trailer ball hitch.
Training usually takes place over 4 hour long lessons between the instructor and yourself, giving you plenty of time to ask questions and gain guidance. Around 4 test slots are available at our test station each day and Saturday tests can be requested at an extra fee. If you would like to undertake a C1 course, please get in contact with us so we can pass on the paperwork for the provisional and send it across to the DVLA.
Alongside our HGV and LGV training, we also offer professional coach training for drivers who are looking to use these vehicles. The Class D test is prepared for and completed with our 55 seater, 12 metre coach. The vehicle has a manual gear box with 6 gears and a large v8 Mercedes engine. Once we receive your completed medical forms and provisional, then we can book an hour long assessment drive and your bus theory test. CPC must be completed prior to the start of any lessons.
Passing a category D test enables you to drive any bus which has more than 8 passenger seats and a trailer of up to 750 kg in maximum weight. Our professional and friendly team are there to help offer support and guidance throughout the whole process, from training to test day.
