"The LGV learner driver's guide" is a useful reference for prospective lorry drivers, with information about the law, licensing, tests and other aspects of the learning experience. However there is nothing in this book that cannot be easily obtained, for free, from government and other websites. The entire sections about licensing and tests could have been lifted from the DVLA/DSA sites and nothing new is in the book. Although a useful "one stop" reference, anyone considering learning to drive a truck (especially if you are reading this review, online) would do better to browse the ample information available on the web and give this book a miss. Anyone already in the process of learning will already know most of the information in this book anyway.
It may make a gift for an older prospective driver, perhaps without the necessary online knowhow to find the information easily themselves. For anyone else, save your money (or indeed buy another fine book from this site ;) )
