Stage 3 – LGV theory test and assessment lesson
Once your licence has been returned to you (this generally takes 7-10 days but it can take longer) the real work can begin. You contact us and we will book your LGV theory test on a date to suit you. We have tests booked up to 10 weeks ahead at the Stockport Test Centre so there is usually lots of choice. We can, of course, book theories at other test centres if you are happy to wait.
At the same time we will book your 2 hour assessment lesson, which is when the real fun starts. You get behind the wheel and have your first experience of driving an LGV vehicle. Your instructor will perform a demonstration drive, run through the controls and then you are away! At first you’ll be on the quieter roads while you get the feel for the vehicle but it won’t take long before you’ll be out on the main roads in the thick of it. Towards the end of your lesson your instructor will assess your drive, once your nerves have calmed down and you have relaxed a bit.
At the end of the lesson we will discuss your assessment lesson, the hours which have been recommended and when you want to have the course - then give you a cost. All our courses are run in a block. So for instance, if you were recommended 16 hours (which would be 14 hours tuition plus your test), we would run that over two days with your test on the second day!
You could be driving 6-10 weeks from the first day you walked into our office!
