HIAB Lorry Loader Training

Your Lorry Loader/Hiab Training Course is certified by ALLMI which is approved by CSCS

Your training will take place at our centre in Croydon where there is plenty of free onsite parking and excellent public transport links.

All courses at the National Driving Centre are ‘All Inclusive’ so that also includes our great value Lorry Loader courses too!

Whether you need swivel hook, brick grab or clamshell

Our training base is at Territorial Army Barracks, Mitcham Road, Croydon CR0 3RU. All candidates must provide 3 passport size photographs on the day of the course.

No hidden extras here!

Manual or remote control – we can cover them all – with any of the below attachments

All courses include the ALLMI Operators Manual and your registration to ALLMI within the price. It is not an extra you have to pay on top of your practicle course!

We even supply the tea and coffee!

When deciding on which course or attachments you need, please bear mind that only two attachments can be taught on a two-day course whether with manual or remote control. You would have to return to another course for the third attachment. To keep the costs down, please think very carefully about what you want to do so you can choose the right attachment for you. Please call and ask for advice if in doubt. It’s FREE.
