Trainees Customers that passed their LGV Driving Test



1. Visit us for a drivers medical, cost of £65, phone us to book an appointment.
The Doctor is with us every two weeks, you can use your own doctor but the cost will vary upto £200. ORDER the FORMS you will need.

2. Send off the forms we will give you to the DVLA with your driving licence.
It will normally take around 3 weeks for your new licence with provisional LGV C category to return. Contact us once you receive it and you can visit us for an assessment/trial lesson. This will give you the opportunity to see what we have to offer and we can suggest the correct duration/cost of driver training to suit your ability. If you cannot visit us for an assessment you can book an 'average' length course.

3. Book your theory tests online at www.gov.uk/book-theory-test ,
you will need to take - LGV Theory Test & LGV Hazard Perception, and if you intend to drive for 'hire and reward' you will need to take the LGV Case Studies if you passed your car driving test after 1/1/1997, contact us for advice if needed. You can either buy the Books and DVD's from us to revise to pass the theory tests or sign up with www.drivingtheory4all.co.uk

4.
Once you have passed your theory tests then contact us to book your driver training course as suggested by the driving assessment.



The driving test will last approximately 60 minutes, during which you will be required to complete a reversing exercise (see the picture below), then drive onto the roads during which you will complete uphill, downhill and angled starts, together with a controlled stop and moving away from the side of road in traffic.

The Truck is laden with 5000kg of ballast load, which is required by law for the driving test due to an EU Regulation brought in to make the test more realistic. The mandatory 5 Intermediate Bulk Containers are filled with water and secured to prevent any movement during a driving lesson.

Letters of thanks from happy customers

Hi, I just wanted to say a quick thanks, I took a 1/2 day training with you
(Laurie) in October, prior to my training course to become an LGV driving examiner with DVSA (I was already a car examiner) I'm delighted to say I passed the course just before Christmas and am now testing on Cat C CE D and BE. So thanks once again the training was excellent!

Nigel Graham, DVSA Driving Examiner, 17th January 2014.

Trainee that passed his LGV Driver CPC Module 4 Test




In this video Matt Alwright presents "You've Been Scammed", don't get caught out, use a local school like Tockwith Training.



A series that highlight scams. In this particular episode Matt talks to 23 year old Steve who paid £2400 to HGV/LGV training broker. The company promised Steve, HGV training as well as a job after passing his test and at time appeared like a professional company. In reality this HGV training broker only provided a medical and theory tests. Steve was left out of pocket with no licence and no job. The advice that comes from this programme is visit the training provider before you part with any money. Use a local reputable provider and avoid those who claim to be national providers as they don't exist.
