MITO's on-the-job Goods Service programmes are designed for people working in the road freight sector driving large goods service vehicles (Class 4 or Class 5). 


The National Certificate in Goods Service (Heavy Vehicle Driver) (Level 3) will enable you to:

  • Identify and respond to hazards
  • Select and record routes
  • Prepare a heavy motor vehicle for use
  • Safely drive either a Heavy Rigid (Class 4) or Heavy Combination (Class 5) vehicle (dependent on the strand you select)

Learners can also complete optional strands, designed to recognise the specific skills required to transport bulk dangerous goods.

These programmes include theoretical and practical training and assessment to ensure drivers are knowledgeable, competent and safe drivers. This qualification also provides a pathway to higher level national certificates including the National Certificate in Business Skills (First Line Management) (Level 4) and the National Certificate in Commercial Road Transport (Goods Service Senior Driver) (Level 4).
