More HGV News

It has been a few months since we last mentioned which operatives were being entered in to our HGV Cat C Enrolment programme. For those of you who are new customers of Hi-Way Services or haven’t updated yourself on our latest news in a while, a HGV Cat C license allows a successful candidate to drive a rigid vehicle – this is where the trailer and cab are permanently fixed together up to 32 tonnes. So far, we have had a total of 8 operatives pass with flying colours, Craig Sexton being our latest pass back in August of this year, so a well done is in order.  We currently have 3 more operatives enrolled on the course of which 2 operatives are at theory level, Jack Mitchell at our Canterbury Depot and Chris Benson down in our Littlehampton depot. Johnny fellows (pictured), also of the Littlehampton depot has his practical exam next week, so we wish him all the very best of luck and look forward to adding him to our ever-growing list of passes!
