The Six Stages
There are 6 stages to gaining your LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) or PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) licence. Our commercial driver training Starter Offer (see below) will help you with the first 3 stages. You may also need to complete your Driver CPC
Stage 1 – Medical
Attend a medical examination with a Doctor and obtain a signed DVLA D4 Medical Examination Report.
Stage 2 – Apply for provisional licence
Apply for your provisional licence using the DVLA D2 form. The medical Examination Report must go with the application together with your car licence. We will provide you with the D2 and D4 forms and help you complete them.
Stage 3 – Driver assessment
The driving assessment will last for approximately 1 hour. This will give you the opportunity to meet your driving instructor and drive the vehicle in which you will be training. Your instructor will assess your driving and recommend the commercial driver training programme required to reach test standard.
Stage 4 – Pass the Theory test
Some candidates are able to pass the theory test with minimal help, by study of the recommended books. Not everyone is comfortable with this approach, so we do offer Theory training to guide you through what you need to know. Some of our courses have theory practice included.
Stage 5 – Practical Driver Training
Begin your practical driver training with us, as advised at the driver assessment. Practical driving will take place at our manoeuvring area and on the open road in a variety of locations.
Stage 6 – Practical Driving Test
We will arrange the test for you, using either our vehicle or your own if it is suitable.
Our starter offer will help you with the first 3 stages, it includes:
- Process your licence application
- Arrange and confirm your medical appointment
- A free driving assessment
