The Theory Test

It is a requirement of the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) that an L.G.V. test candidate has passed the relevant theory test before they can take the practical test.

If you are taking the driver CPC course alongside your LGV/HGV licence then you will need to apply for, and pass two separate theory tests. The first will be for your category C licence, which will include the hazard perception test and the multiple choice test - just like your car theory test! The second will also be a multiple choice test, but this one will involve reading case studies and choosing the best option in that scenario.
