LGV Application Process

You will have to complete your LGV Category C also known as ‘Class 2’ or ‘Rigid’ before you can move onto learning LGV Category CE also known as ‘Class 1’ or ‘Artic’.

Getting an LGV licence involves several stages and the first process of obtaining an LGV licence is to apply for one. You will need to apply for a LGV provisional entitlement.

First, you will need to attend a D4 Drivers Medical Examination which is mandatory when applying for a LGV licence.

Veterans Training Academy will arrange for you to undertake a D4 Driver Medical Examination with a local practitioner, making the process easy and stress free.

Once this has been completed, you will need to complete a D2 Vocational DVLA Application Form. This form along with your completed D4 Drivers Medical Form needs to be sent to DVLA along with your current drivers licence to have your LGV provisional entitlement added to your licence.

When your driving licence returns from DVLA with your LGV provisional entitlements, you will need to pass:

  • Driver CPC part 1a: Theory Multiple Choice
  • Driver CPC part 1b: Theory Hazard Perception

If you passed your standard driving test before the 1st January 1997, the good news is that you do not need to sit the Driver CPC part 2: Case Studies test.
For those who passed their standard driving test after 1st January 1997 the bad news is you will need to sit the Driver CPC part 2: Case Studies test. The good news for you is you’re probably not as old as the ones who passed their test before 1997! In this case, it needs to be done at your local DCA centre where the Driver CPC part 1a: Theory Multiple Choice and Driver CPC part 1b: Theory Hazard Perception take place.

Once you have passed all theory tests you can then move onto practical LGV driver training. Our practical session will last 4-5 days, depending on each individual’s driving experience.

Theory tests and case studies can be completed at your local DCA centres. However, practical LGV training will be completed at Veterans Training Academy facilities in Greater Manchester. Therefore, if you live more than 1 hour travelling time from our training facilities, we will accommodate your travel expenses and book you into the hotel next to our training establishment.
