Please note that you will have to completed your LGV 2 before you can move onto learning LGV 1. Please find out more information about the steps involved below:
- 1) Application Process – Medical
- 2) Theory Test
- 3 )Training and Practical
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 very common for most driver courses and 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. Before you attend the medical you must complete a D4 medical application form.
You can download the medical form below. When you have completed the form, please ensure that bring it with you to the medical examination. Along with the medical form you will also need to complete an application form, our team can arrange this for you. We will also send you the form that you will need to send to the DVLA alongside with your current driving licence and the medical form.
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 the sit the CPC test and this will be done at your local DCA Centre where the theory tests take place.
After you have passed your theory test you will be able to move onto practical LGV driver training. We advise and discuss with our customers the best course for them and arrange appropriate measure for them to start learning. We will then enroll 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 over a period of five days and they start at 7am, 10:30am or 2pm. You will have a one to one instructor for a three and a half hour period and will have two instructors over a seven hour period.
This will give you enough time to go around the different test routes and will 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.
As well as providing LGV Driver training, we also have other great courses available.
