How To Obtain an HGV Drivers Licence


Apply for the provisional licence entitlement

The first step to gaining any truck licence is to apply for the provisional entitlement on your current car licence.

To do this, you must fill out a D2 and D4 form and send them to the DVLA with your current driving licence. One of the forms is a general information form and the other is a basic medical which must be completed by a doctor.

Once both forms are complete, you should sent the forms to the DVLA with your current licence, the address is on the back of the forms. 

Contact the CRH Training office for any questions or issues regarding the forms. We can help you complete them. Call 0121 553 3184

The next step is to complete the theory and hazard perception tests for the truck licence.

Passing the practical driving test
