THE 3 BASIC STEPS

We can arrange everything for you in 3 easy steps, from your medical at the start to your practical test at the end.

Step 1 - Medical
We can arrange this for you at a max cost of £75.00 We will supply you with the D2 and D4 forms and help you complete the D2. Once you have had your medical you will need to post both forms to the DVLA.

We will set you up on-line with our up to date Multiple Choice & Hazard Perception Training Material. When you receive your licence back from the DVLA and are ready to sit your theory test we will book this for you.

Step 3 - Driver Training

To obtain your LGV Licence please follow the steps below:

1. Applying for a Provisional Licence:

The first step is to complete DVLA form D2, this is the application form to have the provisional category put on your driving licence. Next you need to book a medical examination with a doctor. The doctor will need to complete DVLA form D4. You should then send off both parts of your category B (car) licence, D2 and D4 forms to the DVLA in Swansea. DVLA forms D2 and D4 are available from Teesside LGV Training Ltd Tel: 01642 466099

2. Booking your Theory Test:

When you have received your driving licence back from the DVLA with provisional entitlement on, call Teesside LGV Training Ltd and we will then book your theory test.

LGV Theory Test (Module 1):

Before being able to take your practical test, you will need to pass the LGV theory test. The Module 1 theory test is divided into two separate parts; the Multiple Choice Test (100 questions) and the Hazard Perception Test (19 interactive clips).

To make a booking you will need your driving licence number and credit or debit card. If you experience problems in booking your theory test please call the office who can book a theory test on your behalf. After passing the theory test we can then start your practical training.

The theory test is not just about the highway code, it covers all topics ranging from vehicle weights and dimensions, drivers' hours, safe loading, hazard perception, environmental issues plus other matters relating to goods vehicles. Mock theory tests can be found on the theory test practice program.

Case Study Test (Driver CPC Module 2):

In addition to passing the two theory tests, if you want to become a professional driver (which means you will drive for a living) you will also need to pass a Driver CPC Case Study Test.

The Case Study Test is computer based. There are seven case study tests, each with between six and eight questions. The questions will be based on real life situations you may encounter in your working life as a professional driver. Further assistance is also on the theory test program.
