So is it HGV or LGV?

Well, it’s both! HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) and LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) are terms which, in effect, mean exactly the same thing. Confusion can sometimes arise as LGV is also sometimes used for ‘Light Goods Vehicle’. In the UK, HGV tends to remain as the number one abbreviation.


A Note of Caution

Many businesses advertising commercial vehicle training are in fact ‘brokers’ who take a training fee and subcontract their customers out to third parties who actually carry out the training. This can result in customers being sent to providers with no formal qualifications and no correct training facilities. Some advertised courses consist of very few hours spent driving, giving insufficient practice to be properly test ready. Beware – if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.
