HGV Driving Test Part 1 (Preparation and Booking)

HGV-Driving-Test

When booking an HGV training course, it is advisable to take a driving assessment to find out how many hours of training will be required to reach the necessary standard. HGV driving courses are normally run over 4-7 days and as such, once you have started training, it is not feasible to move a test booking.

It is much better to take a Driving Test when you are fully prepared as you will be more relaxed and find it easier to demonstrate to your Examiner that you have reached the required standard set by the DVSA. For more information about this, click here.

The booking of your test will be handled by your training provider as part of the training course. All you need to concentrate on is using your training time to develop your skills as an HGV driver. Driving a large goods vehicle is very different to driving a car and you will find many more challenges on the road. Patience is key and you should listen carefully to the advice and guidance of your instructor.

You can also find plenty of helpful guides on our HGV Training Advice pages, and ask any questions you may have in our HGV Training Forum.
