How to prepare for your LGV theory test

So, it’s time for you to take your LGV Theory Test and you want to be as ready as you can be. You can’t start your physical training until you have a good understanding of the theory behind it. At 2 Start, we are on hand every step of the way to help our learners achieve their goals. We offer access to online practise theory test software to maximise the chance of passing the first time. If you passed your car test after 1st January 1997, you must sit the CPC case studies test, which will be held where the original theory tests are held at your local DCA Centre.

How to revise for the LGV theory test

You can access and practise your theory revision whenever you have some time. It’s a good idea to spend a little time practising every day. This means you won’t overload yourself with information. You are more likely to be confident in the information if you access it for 20 minutes daily, as opposed to several hours one day a week. The more you practise, the more likely it is you pass your tests the first time and you can move onto the next stage of your learning.

Organise training times and buddies

Set some time aside for your learning each day. The good thing about these tests is you can practise virtually anywhere. Get friends and family involved to help you go over the questions. It can be good to have someone learning alongside you for motivational purposes. Even if you don’t get it right the first time, remember you can always retake.

How many questions do you have to pass on the LGV theory test?

To pass these tests you must get at least 85/100 on the theory and 67/100 on the hazard perception. To receive your personal login details, call our office on 0118 402 1861. You don’t have to complete both tests on the same day, but it must be within two years of each other. The theory test will ask you about things like vehicle weights and dimensions, rest times, incidents and emergencies and environmental issues. The hazard perception test involves watching 19 film clips from the driver’s perspective. You will need to spot the oncoming hazard in each video in time. The pass mark is 67 out of 100.

What do you need to take to your LGV theory test?

When you arrive at your test, you must bring a Great Britain photocard driving licence, a Northern Ireland photocard driving licence and paper counterpart or an EU photocard driving licence. Once you’ve passed both parts, your certificate will arrive in the post.
