Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide to obtaining your professional HGV / LGV licence in the UK:

Minimum Age:  You must be at least 18 years old to start training for an HGV / LGV licence.

Licence Requirements: Possess a full UK car driving licence. This is a prerequisite for beginning HGV / LGV training.

Medical Examination: Undergo a medical examination conducted by a registered medical practitioner. This ensures you are physically capable of handling the demands of professional driving.

Provisional HGV / LGV Licence: Apply for a provisional HGV / LGV licence from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). This licence is necessary to begin practical driving lessons with heavy vehicles.

Theory Test: Study for and pass the HGV / LGV theory test. This test is divided into two parts:

  • Multiple-choice questions covering road safety, traffic regulations, and vehicle-specific information.
  • Hazard perception test, which evaluates your ability to recognize and respond to potential hazards on the road.

Practical Training: Enroll in practical training with a DVSA certified instructor after passing the theory test. Practical training involves:

  • Learning to drive heavy vehicles under the supervision of an experienced instructor.
  • Mastering essential driving skills, including vehicle handling, maneuvering, and road safety practices.
  • Preparing for the practical driving test, which is the final step in the training phase.

Initial Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence): Complete the initial Driver CPC, which is mandatory for Category C and C+E drivers. This includes:

  • Theory tests covering advanced driving knowledge.
  • Practical demonstration test (CPC Module 2), which assesses your ability to handle real-life driving scenarios.
  • Case studies test (CPC Module 4), which evaluates your understanding of situations you may encounter as a professional driver.

CPC Periodic Training: Undergo 35 hours of periodic training every five years at approved training centres. This ongoing training ensures you:

  • Stay current with industry developments.
  • Maintain a high level of competence and safety awareness.

Convert your provisional licence to a full HGV licence after successfully completing all tests and training requirements. Now you can operate HGVs professionally on UK roads.

Let’s explore the different types of licences for driving HGV / LGV vehicles:

  • Allows you to drive trucks weighing between 3,500 kg and 7,500 kg with a trailer that exceeds 750 kg.
