How do I start?
Don’t worry - Olly’s Driver Training will help you every step of the way...
You firstly need to apply for the provisional licence entitlement (Category C or, Category D1) - Provisional entitlement for Category C+E/ D1E is automatically granted when category C/ D1 is passed. If you're in any doubt, select all of them. We will help you with any issues.
*** We recommend selecting both C and D for provisional licences for any future upgrades of licence ***
To do this you will need to obtain a D2 and D4 form from the Post Office (we can provide these)
Next you need to attend a medical (we can arrange this) and have the D4 form completed by the Doctor that conducts the medical.
You complete the D2 application yourself, we can help you if needed.
Once you have a completed D2 and D4 form, you need to send these and your current photo-card driving licence, to the DVLA.
The DVLA will check your documents are correct and if so, will grant you the provisional entitlement you have applied for.
Once you have your licence back, you need to attend your LGV theory (multiple choice) and hazard perception test (we can arrange this)

On successful completion of these tests, you can then undertake your intensive practical LGV driving tuition provided by Olly’s Driver Training. On completion of your training, you will take your practical LGV driving test (we book this for you)
If you are looking to drive commercially / for hire or reward, then you will also need to compete your initial Drivers CPC. This involves an additional theory test and a practical demonstration test (we book this for you)
