At TAL Training we offer a range of services depending on individual requirements and have developed a starter pack for candidates that would like us to manage and support them through the process.

Starter pack includes:

  • A medical with our GP (on-site)
  • Assistance with applying for the provisional license
  • Theory test revision material (web based)
  • Theory test booking – Module 1 (Multiple Choice & Hazard Perception)

Once candidates have passed the LGV theory tests and completed an assessment drive the practical element of their training can then be planned.
