class 2 hgv training

Additional Information


The category C practical test must be taken and passed before being able to take the practical CE test

In order to be able to take the practical training and test for your LGV Category C (HGV class 2) licence you must first complete the following elements:

1. Have a Drivers Medical (£50 – £100) to prove you are physically fit to drive a Category C vehicle, form D4 needs to be completed

2. Obtain your provisional entitlement on your licence by sending completed forms D2 and D4 with your licence to the DVLA, the licence will generally be returned within 2-4 weeks with the provisional entitlement added. Both these forms can be ordered online from the DVLA as a pack, you will require the D2 Pack,

3. Take and pass BOTH the LGV Theory Test (£26) and the LGV Hazard perception test (£11), known as Module 1. (please note these are conducted as 2 separate tests). There are various publications which are essential reading before attempting the theory test, these are The Highway Code, The Official DVSA guide to Driving Large Vehicles, these can be ordered online from various suppliers.

On completion of these elements you are able to start your practical LGV Category C (HGV class 2) training with test, known as Module 3. Our newly acquired category C training vehicle is a Renault Midlum with an automatic gearbox.

If you are looking to drive commercially and for a living you will also be required to take and pass the Drivers CPC initial qualification tests which consist of the following:
Module 2 – Driver CPC case studies (computer based and conducted at the DVSA theory test centres)
Module 4 – Driver CPC vehicle safety practical demonstration (practical demonstration with the vehicle and conducted at the DVSA or our Test Centre.

Any newly qualified driver of C1 or C category licence after the 10th September 2009, who does not already have C1 under “implied rights” will need to do the Initial Driver CPC Qualification tests (modules 2&4) in order to gain their first Driver Qualification Card, and therefore be able to drive for hire and reward.

N.B. recent changes to Driver CPC means that a driver with “acquired rights” (category C1 or C) gained prior to 10th September 2009 (e.g passed car test before January 1997), can now do either the 35 hours of CPC training, or can now take the Initial Driver CPC Qualification route instead (modules 2 & 4) in order to gain their first Driver Qualification Card (DQC) after this they will require the periodic training, 35 hours over 5 years, in order to renew their DQC card at the end of the 5 year period. This change now makes it easier for those with acquired rights to get their first DQC where time to complete 35 hours of periodic training may be limited or difficult.
