Falco is delighted to announce our installation team member, Dale Roberts, has passed his rigid ‘Category C+E’ (formally known as ‘Class 1’) HGV Test first time round! This means Falco now has three fully qualified HGV drivers on the team enabling us to serve clients quickly and efficiently throughout the UK without having to resort to subcontract deliveries.

Dale has been with Falco for 7 years and having trained as an installation engineer wanted to develop his skills base to be able to give Falco another string to its bow. Falco was pleased to sponsor Dale in his training as they did previously for his Class II and we are very proud of Dale’s achievements.

The Category C+E license is made up of a practical exam only as the theory test has already been taken as part of the compulsory Category C license test. The category C+E can be taken in the drivers choice of either a fully articulated vehicle or a wagon and drag vehicle. The C+E license allows a driver to drive the largest vehicle in the HGV industry, a vehicle over 3,500kg with a trailer over 750kg.

Falco has always invested heavily in training our staff to meet both their own aspirations and the latest regulatory requirements and Dale’s new license marks a string of new training for our site operators who all recently passed two PASMA courses in one go – Combined Low Level Access and Towers and Tower for Users Course (3T & Advance Guardrail Systems).

All Falco operatives are also trained to NVQ Level 3 Occupational Works Supervision, SSSTS site supervisors training, 1 day health and safety course, Emergency First Aid at Work training and hold the CSCS Supervisors card to a minimum! The Falco HGV drivers are also trained installers and are able to provide site surveying services for cycle parking or other shelter schemes.

Falco operates Congestion zone compliant vehicles and operates throughout the UK providing a first class delivery and installation support service for the business!
