LGV Shunting

This course is designed to instruct candidates in the correct and safe methods of driving LGV vehicles in shunting manoeuvres / operations within a site operating environment.

This course caters for novice (must hold full driving licence), experienced operators and refreshers (5 years)

With the shortage and cost implications of using road qualified drivers, many companies now employ non LGV holders to undertake shunting operations within their own site.

This course will ensure these operators can safely undertake these tasks, reducing costs, damage and down time.
