Getting your HGV Training and Licence during Coronavirus Outbreak
We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy during these uncertain times. Many people are looking to get their HGV licence and there are steps you can complete whilst staying safe.
We highly recommend you start today if you want to get your licence this year. Medicals and theory can be completed by June. We then expect long delays as backlogs from March are cleared first and exams will be fewer as social distancing rules will still be in place.
DVLA Medicals Available Nationwide
The fist stage to getting your HGV licence is to attend a medical and apply for a provisional licence. Medicals are widely available during the crisis and can be safely conducted. There is no physical exam, just some questions that the doctor can go through with you whilst observing social distancing.
Theory Training and Tests (Module 1 and 2)
Start studying today with our online software. There are 3 parts to your training, and you can use your lockdown time to practice with our practice exams.
Multiple Choice: 30 Hours Recommended
Hazard Perception: 10 Hours Recommended
Module 2 Case Studies: 40 Hours Recommended
Theory tests are currently suspended until 31st May 2020 due to coronavirus, but you can apply for an emergency theory test if you’re a critical worker.
Practical Training and Tests (Module 3 and 4)
We are all looking forward to beating the virus and getting back to work but safety comes first. We are preparing our vehicles for 1 to 1, minimum contact training. Practical training for Module 3 and Module 4 will resume in mid-June but the backlogs from March will need to be cleared first. If you are thinking of getting your licence this year, you should start your theory now and get your medical sorted out. Then you’ll be able to get your practical training in over the summer months and be ready when the jobs markets recover.
