2 Start Training is a fully approved logistics training centre, operating across the south and covering Sussex. At 2 Start Training, we operate and provide our services from three main locations; Southampton, Portsmouth, Reading and we have a new facility opening in Sussex.

Since 2009, we have provided customers with excellent quality, professional services, including all aspects of HGV (LGV) training, from the arrangement of driver medicines to licensing.  The term HGV is no longer recognised as the official classification within the industry and it is now referred as LGV.  We know that this can be confusing for people who are new to the industry and if you would like to find out more information please click the button below:

1. The LGV Application Process

There are many stages to the application process, these involve the application process, medical and competency tests. The first step of getting you on the road as a LGV/HGV driver is the application you will need to acquire for a provisional entitlement and after this you will need to undertake a drivers medical examination.

Driver medicals are a common requirements for most driver training courses. It is important for us to ensure that the diver medical test is as easy and stress – free as possible, so that our team can arrange LGV application medicines with local practitioners. When you attend the medical, you are required to take a completed D4 medical application form.

Please download one and make sure that you take it with you once completed. In addition to the form, you will also need to complete an application for a provisional C license, which you will receive from us and send it along with your current driving license and D4 medical form to the DVLA in the envelope we provide.

2. LGV Theory Test

The next steps after you have your obtained your provisional entitlement and medical examination are the tests. There are two tests that you will need to pass in the theory test and they are the main theory test and the hazard perception tests.  In order to pass these tests, you will need to get 85/100 answers correct on the theory test and 67/100 answers correct on the hazard perception test. To get your personal log-in, call our office on 0118 402 1861.

Practice is important and it will increase your chances of passing, so we offer access to online practice theory test software to help you pass your theory first time. If you passed your car test after 1st January 1997, you will need to sit the CPC case studies test. This will be held at your local DCA Centre where original theory tests are held.
