Training FAQs

How long does it take to apply for my LGV licence?

Providing you have no medical issues, it will take around 3 to 4 weeks.

This is subject to you having a medical (D4 form) and completing a D2 application form which is sent to the DVLA Swansea.

How long will it take to complete my training?

This will depend on an assessment, which we can arrange with our Trainer.

On completion of the assessment, the trainer will suggest the time needed for your training.

As a guide, it can take as little as 4 days with previous experience, but we treat everyone as an individual.

The main thing to remember is that our training is designed to suit your needs.

I feel nervous when I am taking driving lessons. How can you help me feel less nervous?

Our Trainers have many years’ experience, in all types of vehicles. The fact is, our Trainers have to achieve a very high standard before they train others.

We pride ourselves on supporting you throughout your training and make sure you feel confident when it comes to taking your test.

Driving is all about knowing how to drive safely, and with our knowledge and understanding, we’ll make you feel confident when you’re behind the wheel.

What happens if I fail my test?

If you work hard and study for the test, then the chances of failure are very low.

Making sure you are ready is the job of both our Trainers and yourself.

We pride ourselves on achieving high pass rates because our training is some of the best on the market.

If you do fail, then we will of course assist you in getting ready for a re-test, which can be organised very quickly.

If I pass my test, what about a career as a driver? Can you help me with that?

Yes we can.

We are very fortunate in that we offer an all-encompassing service. We will endeavour to not only get you into work following your training, but also supply ongoing training and support to give you the knowledge to work in the logistics industry.

We have a fully equipped training room with computers to practice for your theory test and also highly qualified trainers to help with Driver CPC courses.

We don’t just help you pass the test, we look at your needs for a career as a professional driver who is trained up to the very highest of standards.
