Applying for your Provisional Licence and medical test

  • Book a medical test through us or with your own GP.  We’ll give you a D4 form to take along to your medical for the doctor to complete.
  • We’ll give you a D2 form to complete (to add the provisional entitlement for LGV/PCV category to your existing driving licence).  Need help filling out your form?  Just ask, our office team will be happy to help.
  • Once your D4 and D2 forms are complete, just post them both to the DVLA, along with your driving license. It can take around 3 weeks to get these back.

Your LGV Theory test

  • When you send off your licence, we can pre book some theory tests to coincide with when we think your licence will be sent back.  Alternatively, you can wait until you’ve received your licence back from the DVLA (with its provisional entitlement on) – just let us know what you would prefer and we’ll book your theory test for you.  
  • Now is the time to make full use of our fantastic online theory test resources – all the training materials and practice papers that you need for the Module 1 Hazard Perception Test and Multiple Choice section, as well as all the extra information you need for the Module 2 CPC Case Study Test – an extra requirement if you want to be a professional driver. 

Your driver training

  • Once you’ve passed your theory test, you can start your on-site driver training. 
  • Driver Module 3 is the practical driver training and test and includes all aspects required by DVSA syllabus.  
  • On the last day of your training course, you’ll sit your test at our very own on-site DVSA-approved test centre.

Driver CPC Module 4 can be carried out during your Module 3 training course, or on a separate half day.  It is a practical demonstration test covering things like loading, preventing criminality and trafficking and preventing physical risk etc.  We provide all the training required to pass the Module 4 test (which will be carried out by our on-site Module 4 assessor).
