Students must also:

  • Complete the required medical which can be completed by a local GP.

The associated cost do vary, and they will need to complete the D4 Medical Form which can be obtained from the UK Government website. Once this has been completed, you can then apply for your provisional LGV C1 licence by completing the D2 Application Form and sending this with the completed D4 Medical Form for authorisation and issue. Please note that personnel are not permitted to drive until the provisional licence has been issued and received.
