It is necessary for candidates wishing to attain a P.C.V. Category D1 Licence to first attain a Driving Standards Agency L.G.V. Theory Pass Certificate. The Theory Test will contain 100 multiple choice questions of which you will be required to correctly answer 85. The Hazard Perception element of the test contains 19 clips (20 hazards) which you are required to attain 67 out of a possible 100 marks.
It is not possible to book a practical Driving Test for anyone until the result of the Theory Test is known and although a successful candidate is issued with the necessary certification immediately we would recommend that the Theory Test appointment is booked at least two weeks prior to the required driving Course dates.
The cost of the Theory Test Fees are:
Multiple Choice: £26.00
Hazard Perception £11.00
