HGV / LGV Training
Friendly and professional driver training available for all categories of LGV/HGV. We will help you every step of the way from applying for your licence, theory training, booking tests, practical training and any advice you require during and after your training. All our instructors are DVSA approved and we have our own fleet of vehicles.
BBC "You've been scammed" featured a rogue LGV broker. They are very hard sell, and will ask you to pay a deposit over the phone, they don't actually do the training, but contract it out, which means you may pay much more than you need to in the long run, or your training time may be reduced and this could result in poor pass rates..
If you have reached this far, then I'm sure you are serious about taking on the journey/route to become a professional HGV driver. Just give us a call before parting with any of your money, we will only offer you professional, friendly advice and guidance on acquiring your licence. No pushy salesmen here!!

We have the forms you need (D2 and D4) to apply for your provisional licence and undertake your medical. We will go through them with you, making sure they are filled in correctly to ensure you get them back from DVLA within their agreed time-frame (within 21 days). All we ask is for you to get to us on the evening of the medical for around 4:15pm-4:30pm, allowing us time to iron out any problems with the paperwork. Bring any medication you are taking to show the Doctor, glasses if you wear them for driving and come with a full bladder prepared to give a urine sample for testing sugar levels.
There is no cost for the actual D2 and D4 application forms to gain provisional licence for LGV,
If you are unable to make one of our medical evenings, we can organise an appointment at our doctor's surgery for you.
Please call to book a place on:- 0116 287 7692
It is a legal requirement for a LGV vocational licence that you pass a medical (very basic).
We offer our medicals at our Leicester facility every 2 weeks in the evening for your convenience; And remember, we have all the forms needed.
We recommend that you contact your own Doctor first just to compare prices.
Having passed your medical, you can now send for your provisional LGV licence by recorded delivery..

The LGV theory test consists of a hundred questions plus a hazard perception test consisting of nineteen video clips.
Step 3 - LGV Driving Assessment
When you receive your LGV licence back or have completed your LGV theory test, the next stage is a driving assessment.
The assessment is a short course and is approximately sixty minutes of practical LGV driving and instruction in the vehicle that you will be in when training.
This assessment makes it possible for us to accurately assess the amount of time you will require for your training course, in order for you to pass your test first time.
This allows us to maintain our very high percentage of first time pass rates. The instructor will issue you with a copy of the assessment and also detail activities you need to practice while driving your car to reduce your training days (thus saving you money!).
Step 4 - Practical Training Course
Following the DVSA approved lesson plans, we not only prepare you for your test, we also train you for the job you are going to do when you have passed your test.
All courses include reversing at our own Leicester based reversing centre with four DVSA replica reverse pads. In addition, during your course you will be trained in real life situations both reversing and delivering, preparing you for the career you are about to embark on.
A small selection of our customers comments.

Step 5 - Practical Test
Whilst there is no such thing as a “guaranteed pass”, we guarantee you will be trained to and indeed above DVSA test standard with the driving confidence in your own ability to pass. The LGV test consists of a reversing manoeuvre and approximately a one hour drive on the road. We not only train you on test routes, but on a variety of roads and situations, giving you a broader repetoire of driving skills for when you take your test.
After passing your test we are happy to offer help and advice about anything you are not sure about. We are just a phone call away on 01162 877692 or call in for a cuppa and a chat. We can also help you to find work as we have many companies who contact us when they are recruiting new HGV/LGV drivers.
