Individuals looking to become LGV drivers need to pass a theory test prior to beginning practical skills training. The theory test is designed to assess your knowledge of general highway safety and hazard identification and prevention.

To avoid multiple test attempts and failures, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has developed practise tests along with several other options drivers can use to prepare for the actual exam. We’ll look at two of those options in this space.

Online Practice Tests

The real theory test consists of 100 multiple-choice questions divided into two categories of 50 apiece. The first category is general highway safety while the second is hazard identification and prevention. In order to pass a driver must score at least 85 correct answers.

On the GOV.UK website are two practise tests provided by the DSA. Each test has been cut in half for time purposes, but the 50 questions provided give drivers a good idea of what they can expect when taking the real thing. The practise tests include a time limit in order to get the driver used to testing under such limits.

iPhone App

Yes, even the DSA is part of the mobile revolution. They have an iPhone app ready for download on any Apple mobile device. However, it’s not free. The cost is £5.99.

When you install the app, you have access to LGV practise tests utilising more than 1,000 questions from updated DSA question banks. You can take practise tests straight up or concentrate on questions within a specific category. Categories include things like accident handling, braking systems, and sharing the road with other users.

Consider the HGV Training Centre

We think it’s great that the DSA offers multiple resources for practising. At the HGV Training Centre, we welcome you to consider working with us as well. We have a unique approach that yields a 92% first-time pass rate among our students who take the theory test. That means our programs are well worth your money and time.

What’s more, we know that the process of obtaining a commercial driver licence can be intimidating and confusing. We aim to streamline that process by helping our drivers through every single step. From your medical exam to completing your practical skills test, we’ll be right beside you.

In preparation for your LGV theory test, you can study on your own or sign up for one of our courses. We obviously recommend the latter. Our training approach is very focused and fast-paced in order to make sure the information you need to know is retained when it’s time to test.

Once you pass the theory test, you can begin your practical skills training. During that time we’ll teach you how to load and unload, how to manoeuvre your LGV, how to drive safely in different conditions, and so on. By the time you finish your training, you’ll be more than prepared to take to the road as a professional driver.
