Can’t find what you’re looking for? We are now giving you the opportunity to create your own LGV 2 package! This will allow you to add the requirements that you need to your course which includes elements such as adding Drivers CPC or an additional ADR course!
To find out more about how you can obtain your category c licence then take a look at the steps below.
Getting a LGV licence involves several stages and the first process of obtaining the licence is to apply for one. You will need to apply for a provisional entitlement first, you will also have to undergo a medical examination. The driver medical test is mandatory when applying for a LGV licence.
At 2 Start we help you through every process and our team can arrange a LGV medical with a local practitioner, making the process easy and stress free.
You can download the medical form here: D4 Form.
You will need to take this with you to your medial appointment and the examining doctor will fill it out. This will need to be sent back to the DVSA along with an application form, which we can provide.
When you have completed your medical examination and have your provisional licence, you will then need to undertake the hazard perception and theory test. To successfully pass, you will need to answer at least 67/100 answers on the hazard perception test. In order to pass the theory test you will have to correctly answer 85/100 questions.
You need the right tools to pass your theory test and at 2 Start we have you covered, this is why we provide access to an online practice theory test software. It is quick and simple to use and will help you revise for your theory test. We always say if you do not prepare, prepare to fail.
If you passed your driving test before the 1st of January 1997, the good news is that you do not need to sit the CPC case studies test. For those who passed after this date, you will need to then sit the CPC test and this will be done at your local DVSA Theory Test Centre.
After you have passed your theory test you will be able to move onto practical LGV 2 Cat C Training. We advise and discuss with our customers the best course for them and arrange the appropriate measures for them to start learning. We will then enrol you onto a course and these take place during the working week, testing however can be arranged on Saturday or during the week.
Our practical training sessions are completed over a period of four to five days.
This will give you enough time to go around the different test routes and will give you the time to try the various exercises you will need to learn in order to pass your test. It will also give your instructors a good indication on your strengths and weakness and they will be able to assess if you are ready to take your test.
Once you have passed your practical DVSA test, if you are planning on driving a category C vehicle commercially you will then need to take a Module 4 CPC course. This is a practical, ‘show me’, ‘tell me’ test conducted at our driving test centres by our own examiners. On the day of your test, you will receive 2.5 hours of training which will cover all elements of the practical test. If you are successful you will receive a Module 4 Pass certificate.
