HGV / LGV Training
RoadTrain provides FREE theory test training at our centre for all of our customers.
Your RoadTrain HGV (also known as LGV – Large Goods Vehicle) course will be a 5 day structured course with a free induction day to make it 6 days training in total; this would normally be a shared course with a Department of Transport (DVSA) registered instructor.
The course follows the Department of Transport (DVSA) syllabus ensuring that you cover all the elements you are expected to know for the driving test.
We stock a wide range of study material to help you through your theory and hazard perception test. Please see our Driver Training Aids page.
- C Licence (Rigid) from £995
- CE Licence (Artic) from £1095

This means that you get a DVSA accredited school at the best possible price.
Course prices do not include test fees. Currently these are £40.00 for the theory test and £115.00 for weekday driving tests.
Obtaining your HGV / LGV Licence
If you want to learn to drive a large goods vehicle (HGV / LGV) you must have a full driving licence for a car, you have to be at least 18 years old and you have to pass a medical. For your medical, you need to take the orange form (D4 or DLM1 in Northern Ireland) to your doctor. Roadtrain are happy to arrange this for you at no extra charge.
All drivers must pass the Category C (HGV Class II – Rigid) test before proceding to Category CE (HGV Class I – Artic).
Your HGV test will last about 90 minutes. During this time your examiner will want you to drive safely to a high standard under various road and traffic conditions. You’ll be given directions clearly and in good time and asked to carry out set exercises. The set exercises will include reversing within a marked area into a restricted opening, a braking exercise and you need to demonstrate the uncoupling and re-coupling procedure, if you’re taking your test with a trailer. Train with us and we’ll make sure you are fully prepared (no surprises) and you can take your test at our centre – exactly where you’ve been practicing!
