LGV Theory Test Practice 2021

If you’re looking to get a full score on your LGV Theory Test, you’ve come to the right place.

It’s both time-consuming and costly to fail the theory test. Despite this, official statistics show that almost ⅓ of all test takers came unprepared and failed the LGV test in 2020. Don't make the same mistake.

Our revision questions, answers, and explanations are licensed directly from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) so they are up-to-date and correct for 2021. As DVSA is the agency that sets the real test, our tests are as close to the real deal as possible.

The theory test is the same for Heavy Goods Vehicles and Large Goods Vehicles. Under UK and European Law, they are the same licence and cover commercial trucks with a gross combination mass of 3 500 kg or more.

How Does the HGV Theory Test Work?

The HGV theory test is made up of two parts that must be completed within 24 months of each other. It’s easiest to take them both at the same time, but it’s not unusual to fail one part and have to re-take that part at a later date.

  • Part 1a - Multiple-Choice Questions. This part is about answering 100 multiple-choice questions in 115 minutes. You need 85% correct to pass.
  • Part 1b - Hazard Perception. You will watch 19 Hazard Perception Video Clips. Click every time you believe there is a hazard - you will be scored by how quickly you can spot the hazard. You need a score of 67 out of 100 to pass.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does the Test Cost?

The theory test costs a total of £37 to sit - £26 for Part 1a and £11 for Part 1b. You can book it here. If you count the expense of buying materials to practice for the test, you should estimate the cost to be about £50.

Keep in mind that the cost of training to drive a Large Goods Vehicle can amount in the thousands, so the cost for the theory test is negligible in comparison. But it’s just as important as it sets the foundation for you understanding how to handle your vehicle.

What To Do If I Pass the LGV Test

You will receive a theory test certificate that is valid for two years from the date you passed the test. This certificate includes a reference number that you need to quote when you book your practical test.

Most people take their practical test within a few weeks or months of completing the theory test. If you have not taken the practical test before the two years are up, you will have to re-take both parts 1a and 2a.

What To Do If I Fail the Test

If you fail any part of the LGV Theory Test, you won’t be able to re-take the test for three clear working days. You should find out why you have failed and focus on improving your weak areas for the next time you sit the test.
