Licence Acquisition

Pertemps Driver Training offer all categories of LGV and PCV licence acquisition across the UK. We pride ourselves in our simple and informative approach to teaching the ins and outs of licence acquisition. Our dedicated team of training coordinators are always on hand to guide learners through the process to make it as easy as possible.


Whether you’re an individual Driver looking to upskill or a transport operator looking to create their next generation of Drivers, we have the experience, capability and flexibility to meet your needs.


Up-skilling to gain an LGV or PCV licence can be complicated and time consuming. Our training coordinators are always on hand to guide through every step of the journey.


Depending on what licence category is already held this will alter the training journey, we have included an example below to show what you could be expected to complete. This training journey is what to expect if you are a Cat B (Car) licence holder wanting to gain a LGV Cat C+E (Class 1 ) licence.


Licence Acquisition Process

    Attend and pass a Drivers Medical.

  2. Provisional Licence

    Apply for this through the DVLA.

    There are 2 to pass, Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception.

  4. Initial CPC Module 2

    A further demonstration test, the second part of the training you will need to complete to gain your Driver CPC Qualification.
