1. The LGV Application Process

The process of applying and obtaining an LGV licence involves several stages. When you apply, the first step is to apply for a provisional entitlement, and then to undergo a medical examination. The medical test is a common requirement for driver training courses. Ensuring the diver medical test is as easy and stress-free as possible for you is important to us so our team can arrange LGV 2 application medicals with practitioners that are local to you. When you attend the medical, you are required to take a completed D4 medical application form.

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

2. LGV Theory Test

After you have undertaken the medical examination and obtained your provisional entitlement, the next step of the process is to take your theory test and hazard perception test. 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 increases 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.

3. Providing Expert LVG Training to Learners from Dorset

Only once you have successfully passed your theory test, will you then be allowed to commence your practical LGV driver training. By speaking with our team and discussing your requirements, we can make sure that you are enrolled on a course that is best-suited to your needs. Courses tend to take place Monday- Friday but testing can be midweek or on Saturday, depending on your requirements.

We run our training sessions over a period of five days, with training sessions that start at 07:00, 10:30 and 14:00; these sessions are with a one-to-one instructor over a three-and-a-half-hour period or a two-to-one instructor ratio over a seven-hour period. This allows our instructors enough time to be able to fully assess and instruct drivers on different test routes and exercises that are required to pass your test. Anyone who obtained their original drivers licence after September 1997 will be required to sit their initial CPC before they can drive for hire and reward. Find out more about the CPC.
