You must have had a large goods vehicle (LGV) driving licence for at least 3 years to supervise a learner driver.
You don’t need to take formal training or to be registered to teach someone to drive an LGV.
Register as an instructor voluntarily
You can apply to join either the:
- national register of LGV instructors - it’s endorsed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)
- national vocational driving instructors register
These registers have replaced the DVSA voluntary register of LGV instructors.
