HGV Jobs

How is your algebra? Because  HGV 1 = LGV C+E & HGV  2 = LGV C. Not to mention PSV x 4.

HGV stands for Heavy Goods Vehicle and LGV means Large Goods Vehicle;

Under the UK and European law, the LGV licence and HGV licence are the same licence. 

They cover all commercial trucks that feature a gross combination mass of over 3500kg. That means anything: including refrigerated, box vans, Lutons, flat beds, tippers, drop sides, and anything you can think of.

Some people think LGV stands for Light Goods Vehicles and this allows you to drive pickup trucks and vans, with a gross vehicle weight of under 3500kg.

But did you know that you can drive up to 3500kg (3.5 tonnes) with your ordinary car driving licence – category ‘B’ entitlement.

The name HGV arrived along with the first tax disc UK and was used as a vehicle category for tax purposes. Here in the UK vehicles are taxed according to their engines, construction, fuel type, weight, emissions, and purpose or use.

Then, in 1992 we started to use the unified EU licences and vehicles over 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight were classed as trucks; LGV changed from being light goods vehicles to large goods vehicles, so no difference then between HGV and LGV.

Then there is PSV. Now in Europe PSV is usually followed by Eindhoven, and means a seriously good football club. Here it means Public Service Vehicle with four types operator licences, plus special licensing rules in London.

So is that PSV standard, standard & international (Michael Caine needed that one for the getaway coach in The Italian Job) restricted, special restricted  or does your PSV need an LSP (London Service Permit).
