All Driver Hire offices offer a 24/7 phone service
Training takes place in our large first-floor training room at our office in Redfield. We cater for a minimum of five drivers and a maximum of twenty. The set-up in our training room is comfortable and is specifically designed to encourage interaction between trainees. Courses run from Monday to Friday.
As you will know, HGV drivers are required to complete 35 hours of training every five years. Most choose to do seven hours in each year, but you can if you wish, complete the full 35 hours requirement in a single week.
For employers, if it is more convenient, we also offer on-site training at your depot for a minimum of ten drivers.
To ensure you don’t go hungry, we have tea and coffee making facilities along with soft drinks and biscuits. Our kitchen is available at lunchtime or, if you’d rather, there are plenty of outlets offering a great choice of hot and cold food to either eat in or take out.
Travelling to your Driver Hire training course is easy. We’re located on the A420 one mile from the city centre. If you’re travelling from further afield we are between junction 2 and 3 of the M32 from the M4. We don’t have onsite parking, but there is plenty of free parking available in the streets adjoining our office.
If you were considering public transport, the 37, 42, 43, 44 or 45 bus will drop you within easy walking distances.
If you’re giving up a day’s work to complete some Driver CPC training, then it’s up to your training provider to make sure it’s a day well spent. That’s how we see things at Driver Hire Bristol. It’s our aim to ensure the training we deliver is relevant, will enhance professional skills and is delivered in a way that makes it accessible, lively and interesting.
And that’s the aim of our trainer, Andy Porter. Andy has been delivering Driver CPC training at Bristol for the past two years. Before that he served for 20 years as Crew Manager with Avon Fire Service. He was also an Operational Officer and a Blue Light Response Driver. Whilst with the Fire Service, Andy also added both managerial and teaching qualifications. He’s held a category C HGV licence since 2004.
Andy is passionate about Driver CPC training. He prides himself on the quality of the teaching he delivers. That’s why he continues to receive excellent feedback scores on post-course analysis forms.
