The law changed in 2014 and manual car licence holders, passing on an Automatic Truck get a licence to drive Manual & Auto HGVs. The Law also changed in 2021 to allow drivers to go from Car (B) straight to LGV CE.

Reversing and Backing / Docking Practice (in Epping)

Practice the same techniques you'll need if working at a Supermarket or Retail Distribution Centre.

  • Correct procedures for backing and parking including 90 degree reversing into a bay, Blind Side & Vision Side Reversing

  • Learn why reversing is dangerous and the importance of positioning of the vehicle before starting to reverse & the correct way to steer an articulated vehicle (tractor-trailer) in reverse.

  • Understand the importance of area checking before backing (using a guide or helper whenever possible).  

  • And why you need to avoid all unnecessary backing, particularly blind-side backing.

  • We not have access to warehouse/distribution loading/docking bays our centre has a Simulated Docking Area.
