Mirror, Signal, Mugneouvre

70. Lancaster Training Services

Comparing Action movie actors to Trade mugs, I’d say the Sparta is very much like Stallone or Schwarzenegger. They’ve been around the block. Their heyday was in years gone by.  They’re an old macho favourite but have been away from the scene now for quite a while. Once a mainstay of this site, newer, more dynamic vessels have filled the gap left in their absence. Such as the ‘Bell’ (Jason Statham) or the ‘Cambridge’ (Daniel Craig.)

However the Sparta will not be beat and it muscles back on to Mugspotters in the shape of this blockbuster, courtesy of Lancaster Training Services. This is a 2-colour on white widescreen epic. One elevation features all your contact details, but spin it round and you’re greeted with a fantastic array of vehicular diagrammatics featuring lots of letters.
The wondrous pics speak for themselves but here is a guide to some of the Acronyms & names mentioned therein:

B + E:  Combinations of vehicles consisting of a vehicle in category B and a trailer over 750kg.
PCV:  A passenger carrying vehicle (PCV) with 9 to 16 passenger seats (Category D1)
Lorry Loader – Basically a grab lorry and more interesting than its namesake, the dreckfest pop band, Toploader.
LGV: Large Goods Vehicle
C & C + E:  C holders up to the test standard enabling them to take the practical LGV C+E driving test.
F L T: Fork Lift Truck

In fact here is a song I’ve just wrote about HGV Driver Training. (Sung to the tune of Aretha Franklin’s Respect)

B + E & C + E
Find out what it means to me
C & C + LGV
Take care … PCV
