The Theory Test

Jamie’s Blog – The Theory Test


The LGV/HGV Theory Test.

Happy Friday to everyone! This week we will be looking into the in’s and out’s of the LGV theory test.

Part of the LGV Training process is to pass a two part theory test. This consists of a Multiple Choice and a Hazard Perception.


Part 1 – Hazard Perception

The LGV Hazard Perception part of the LGV Theory will consist of a series of film clips shown from a driver’s perspective. Before the test starts there will be a tutorial which will run through what to expect and how to use the system. This will make it easier to understand what you need to do.

During the test you will be shown 19 film clips, each clip will contain 1 or more hazards. You should respond by pressing the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing that may result in you, the driver, having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. There are 20 potential hazards in total.

Every time you click, a red flag will show on the bottom of your screen in to show your hazard has been noted. In order to pass this test you will need to score at least 67 out of 100.

The screen shot below shows how the Online Revision Material Progress Dashboard provided by The LGV Training Company will look. You can track your progress and we can also keep an eye on what might need a bit more work.

Thanks to Nikki in our Training operations team for those!

Part 2 – Multiple Choice

The LGV Multiple Choice part of the Theory Test will consist of 100 multiple choice questions you will need to get a minimum of 85 correct, most questions will ask you to mark 1 correct answer from 4 possible, some questions might ask for 2 correct answers. Before you start you can through a taster session for up to 15 minutes to get used to the system. Staff at the test centre will be available to help you if you have any difficulties. The questions will cover a variety of topics relating to Road Safety, The Environment and Documentation. Only one question will appear on the screen at a time.

Also, you can listen to the questions using headphones if it’s easier for you.

The LGV Training Company can supply you with a personalized online login to our online Theory Test Revision area which will help you to prepare for the test.


Next week Ed will be going through the different elements of the practical training. See you next Friday!
