Before you can take your LGV Driving test, you have to pass the theory and Hazard Perception Tests. The theory test is made up of 2 parts - multiple choice and hazard perception. It doesn’t matter which one you take first but you need to pass both within 2 years of each other to get your theory test certificate.
After passing the theory tests you’ll get a pass letter with the results for the part of the theory test you’ve just taken. When you’ve passed both parts, you’ll get sent your theory test certificate with your theory test number on it. We’ll need the theory test number to book your practical test for you.
Your theory test certificate is valid for 2 years from when you passed the first part of the test. If you don’t take your practical test within 2 years of passing the first part of the test, you’ll have to retake that part again.
If you should happen to fail the theory tests then you’ll get a results letter with feedback telling you why you’ve failed.
You can book another theory test straight away but you can’t take the test for another 3 clear working days.
To practice your theory and hazard perception test you need to purchase the following:
The official DVSA guide to hazard perception’ training DVD-ROM
The official DVSA Theory Test for Drivers of Large Vehicles book
