: While the knowledge required to pass the LGV driving test should not be underestimated, it is only part of the knowledge and skills a driver will need to do their job legally, safely, healthily, effectively and efficiently. The EC Driver Training Directive has set out recommendations with the aim of establishing standard benchmarks for professional drivers, and this, combined with increased recruitment following the Working Time Directive, should amount to widespread changes in the amount of training employers are obliged to provide. This volume is an LGV training manual for any professional driver or transport manager, covering the LGV theory test, the practical driving test, and the EC syllabus. Topics covered include: safe driving; the LGV theory test; the LGV driving test; the EU Driver Training Directive; the RTITB Master Driver Certificate; the IAM advanced goods vehicle driving test; obtaining an LGV driving entitlement; drivers' hours and tachographs; driving regulations; your vehicle and the law; vehicle and load security; driver health and safety; road traffic accidents; road traffic offences and penalties; enforcement authorities and their powers; transport operations; and NVQ training for transport.
