PCV/ LGV Licence Acquisition

We can take you through the whole process of Licence acquisition from start to finish.

  1. The first step in gaining your large vehicle licence is to apply for provisional entitlement which involves having a large vehicle medical.
  2. The GP will complete a D4 medical form which will be handed back to you following the medical. This needs to be sent off with a completed D2 form together with your licence.
  3. Provisional entitlement takes around two weeks, once this has been added to your licence, we can book your theory tests.
  4. You can legally begin practical lessons once you have provisional entitlement, but you can only take your on road test once you have passed the MC and HP tests. For this reason we recommend that trainees achieve MC and HP as a minimum before beginning practical lessons. We can provide you with practice material for all theory tests.
