CUSTOMER INFORMATION

You must have a full licence to drive a car - Group B.

The next stage is to complete the forms required to apply for your provisional driving licence - D2 & D4 (available from LTS or main Post Offices). D2 is about you and the provisional you want and D4 is a medical form that must be completed by a Doctor. Any Doctor can carry out the medical and this usually costs between £60 - £100

When completed, forms D2 & D4 must be sent to DVLA, Swansea together with your ordinary driving licence.

If all is well you should receive your new licence from the DVLA within about three weeks. Make sure you have been granted the provisional entitlement/s you applied for.

To obtain a FULL driving licence you must then pass 4 modules

Module 1 Theory Test – 2 Parts - 1a multi-choice questions & 1b hazard perception test
Module 2 Case Study
Module 3 Practical Driving Test
Module 4 Practical Daily Checks

Module 1 - Theory Test.

The multi-choice test ( part 1a) pass mark is 85 out of 100 and the hazard perception (part 1b) pass mark is 67 out of 100. These tests can be taken together or separately, but you must pass both parts to receive a Theory Test Certificate. If both tests are taken together and one is failed, you only need to retake the failed part!

You can book the tests on the driving and vehicle standards agency’s (DVSA’s) website http://www.DVSA.gov.uk or

Tel 03002001122. Cost 1a £35.00 and 1b £15.00.

 

Module 2 - Case Study.

Module 2 must be passed before Module 4 can be taken.

You can book on the DVSA’s website http://www.DVSA.gov.uk

phone 03002001122. Cost £30.00.

 

Module 3 - Practical Driving Test.

Module 3 is carried out at the DVSA’s driving test centre. LTS book this test for you. Cost of this test is £115.00

 

Module 4 - Practical Daily Checks.

Module 4 is all about daily checks, security of the load and passenger care, etc. This is a thirty minute test which is also carried out at the DVSA’s driving test centre. You must pass module 2 before you can do module 4. LTS will book this test for you. The cost of this test is £55.00 and will be £163.00 including VAT and test fee (£55.00) to use our bus.

 

 

You can sit the theory test (module 1 -multi choice test and hazard perception test) and then come to LTS for the driver training and the practical test (module 3). Successfully completing modules 1 and 3 allows you licence acquisition, but if you want to drive an LGV or PCV for a living, that is, carry passengers or a load and get paid, then you must also complete modules 2 and 4.

You must NOT drive ‘vocationally’ until you have passed all 4 modules!
