Changes to LGV driving tests delayed

  • 13 January 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Changes to allow drivers who pass their practical test in an LGV with an automatic gearbox to receive manual entitlement have been delayed until next month.

The DVSA (formerly Vosa and the Driving Standards Agency) has said the change in legislation will not come into effect until sometime in February, instead of earlier this month as anticipated.

The changes will remove the requirement for vehicles presented at a practical test to have a minimum of eight forward gears.

Those who already hold a licence with manual entitlement for a car, bus, or truck with or without a trailer, will also receive manual entitlement if they take their LGV test in an automatic vehicle. Existing drivers can also apply to receive the manual entitlement on their LGV licence.
