LGV Training & HGV Training


The multiple choice questions and hazard perception test for LGV and PCV are two
separate tests. The fee for the LGV / PCV multiple choice theory test is £35 and
the fee for the LGV / PCV hazard perception test is £15.

The two parts can be taken at different times but both parts must be passed to
obtain a LGV / PCV theory test pass certificate. Your LGV / PCV theory test
certificate is valid for two years from the date you passed the first
part of the test. If you do not take your practical test within this two year
period you will have to take another theory test.

questions and ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later in the test.
