DVLA does not keep information on LGV driver training nor can we identify the number of foreign LGV drivers working in the UK. We do, however record volumes of applications being processed for vocational drivers, which includes both LGV and PCV.

For the 12 month period ending December 2007, the number of first applications processed for vocational drivers was 73,475. This figure includes 60,119 provisional and 13,356 substantive applications.
