Medical
In the first instance, students must undertake a medical to prove they are physically fit to drive an LGV. This can be arranged through the candidate's own GP but please bear in mind that this can cost anything up to £160.

We have an arrangement with a local practitioner based in Birmingham Doctor Crossland is very experienced at carrying out Lgv medicals at a cost of £35.00. Tel: 0121-680-3848.

The doctor undertaking the medical is required to complete form D4 of the LGV provisional application form so make sure you take this with you. The medical should last no longer than 20 minutes. Once the medical is completed the doctor will hand back the completed D4 form to you. Please note. You will be asked to provide a urine sample at your appointment. You can obtain a D4 form by calling Associated Transport Tuition: 01527 524170.

Licence Application
Next, you must apply for the correct LGV provisional entitlement.
Provisional LGV licence application form (D2) must be used. You can call A.T.T. 01527 524170 for the form,
Please ensure the application form is read carefully before it is completed. Attention must be paid when selecting the appropriate provisional entitlement. The cat "C" Box should always be ticked (unless applying for C1 (7.5 tonnes provisional). Please call A.T.T. if in any doubt.

The LGV provisional application is free.

When complete, post the forms to the DVLA in the brown pre-addressed envelope. Alternatively, they can be forwarded to A.T.T. first who will check that everything is correct before forwarding to the DVLA. The student should expect the licence back within 10-14 days.
