LGV Drivers Assessor Course Assessment

This is an initial assessment that all prospective candidates must pass in order to continue with the course. The purpose of this assessment is to put the candidate’s driving abilities to the test and includes all the practical elements of the LGV test. All candidates are expected to demonstrate advanced knowledge of driving and road safety and must be able to apply them in practice.

As the course will enable drivers to assess others, the requirements for passing this assessment are much more stringent than for the normal LGV driving assessment. If the candidate demonstrates a high level of competence, they will be cleared to move on to the next part of the course.

Those who do not make the grade will be issued with a report that lists the reasons why. The assessment should take no more than two hours to complete from start-to-finish.
