Obtaining a Licence
Take the first steps towards becoming a professional driver
CRH will help you through every step
of your licence acquisition. You will be
assigned an individual case handler, to
ensure that your time with us is as simple
and stress-free as possible.
1. Licence Application
The first stage towards obtaining your
new licence, is to apply for your provisional
entitlement on your driving licence for the
category that you would like to undertake.
– DVLA forms D2 and D4 must be
completed and sent to DVLA Swansea
– These forms can be provided by CRH on request
2. Passing Medical Inspection
You will need to have passed a DVLA
medical test (form D4) before you can
continue with your licence acquisition.
This form must be completed by a medical
practitioner. CRH can also help to advise you
of any recommended doctors within
– The average price of a medical is between £50 – £80
– Hand your DVLA D4 form to your chosen GP & let them
fill in the required information
3. Pass your Theory Tests
Your theory tests can be completed
from information contained in the DSA’s
publication, however, CRH recommend that
you take our online theory course. The course
entitles you to have up to 90 days unlimited
access to the practice tests, revised material
and video clips, with just a one payment.
– To access the online theory test, CRH will provide you
with a username and password, that you can then log
on to www.crhtraining.co.uk to begin using
4. Take your practical test
Having now successfully passed your theory tests,
and have the correct provisional licence ready, your
five day course will now be arranged. Four days will be the
practical driving instruction, and on the fifth day you
will complete your final training before taking
your DSA practical test.
– More training days can be arranged
– Either two students to one trainer, or one to
one training available

Competence (CPC) has been introduced

driving standards and improve
