This package is for those aiming to obtain their Category C (Class 2) driving licence, allowing them to drive lorries or trucks weighing between 3.5 and 32 tonnes. It also includes the Driver CPC Initial Qualification (Module 2 & 4), a legal requirement for driving large goods vehicles for paid work.
What does the package include?

- LGV Drivers Medical
- Online Theory Revision Package
- Theory, Hazard Perception and CPC Module 2 Tests
- Minimum of 20 Hours of One-to-One Practical Training
- CPC Module 4 Test

How long will the whole process take?
The entire process usually takes about 10 weeks, but it depends on how fast the DVLA processes your provisional license. If the DVLA processes your license faster than the 5-week average, we can accelerate your training.
How long will practical training take?
The course spans 20 hours, spread across 3 days, with testing scheduled for the afternoon of the third day.
How much does the package cost?
The total cost is £1,600 which includes all DVSA test fees and VAT.
What payment options do I have?
Candidates can opt to pay the entire fee upfront or make a non-refundable £240 deposit when booking. If you choose the deposit option, the remaining £1,360 is required 21 days before your first practical training day. The deposit covers the costs of securing driver medicals and DVSA theory tests.
What are the minimum requirements?
Candidates must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid UK car driving license (an up-to-date photo card license).
How do I book this course?
To initiate the process, start by scheduling a driver’s medical. Select a date and location from the calendar provided. Once chosen, we will arrange the medical appointment for you. Driver’s medical sessions typically last 10-15 minutes. Please take note of the following appointment times:
- Ellesmere Port: 14:15
- Chester: 13:00
- Liverpool (Huyton): 16:00
- Liverpool (Dingle): 19:00
What happens after I book?
Immediately after booking, you’ll receive an email confirming your order and providing details of your medical appointment.
Following the medical, we’ll initiate the process of obtaining your provisional license. This step may take several weeks for processing by the DVLA, so we recommend utilising this time for studying the theory, hazard perception, and CPC Module 2 tests.
Upon receiving your provisional license, we can schedule your theory tests. Once successfully completed, practical training can commence.
We are committed to accommodating your schedule for both training and testing to the best of our ability.
