3a Reverse Test – HGV Test Changes

Contact Us today and Sirens Driving Academy will help you every step of the way.

The HGV test changes to the Module 3a reverse test and the uncoupling, recouple means we can assess that element.

Our unique indoor DVSA approved site is close to the M40 Oxford and A41 Aylesbury and only 45 mins out of London.

3a Reverse test - HGV test changes

The DVSA has now split the LGV driving test into 2 parts, Module 3a (off-road exercise) & Module 3b (on-road driving test)

The module 3a test consists of an S shape reversing manoeuvre into a coned area representing a loading bay and backing up to a barrier.

Uncouple and Mod 3a reverse test

If you are doing a class 1, Cat CE 3a test this will also consist of an uncoupling exercise.

Our LGV Instructors have over 50 years of combined experience and we are a DVSA approved module 3a exam center.

Cat CE 3a Reverse Test & Uncoupling

If you are looking for a company that will train you to a high standard, then you have found us.

Our training is designed so that you can not only pass but also understand how to reverse and uncouple a large articulated lorry.

We will show you how to become accurate with your reverse and the checks you must make to successfully pass the Module 3a test with one of our driver training assessors.

You need to pass the module 3a reverse test and coupling exercise before you can complete the Module 3b on-road driving test. The driving test is still carried out by a DVSA examiner and lasts for 60 minutes. In that 60mins you can only make a maximum of 12 driving faults but 1 serious or dangerous means you are unsuccessful. This is part of the HGV test changes.

Uncouple 3a Reverse Test

The test is £40.00 but if you want to hire our vehicle the total would be £140.00, not including training.

Call 07818 408336 or 07984 493798 to book your module test.

What do the Module 3a Reverse Test changes include?

Pass Your Class 1 3a reverse test CE

Any driver looking to obtain their HGV/LGV or bus driving licence are required to complete a 3A & 3B test with a successful pass.

The 3a module of the test includes:

  • an ‘S’ shaped reverse into a bay without hitting any cones or leaving the boundaries.
  • If you are taking the test with a trailer, you must also show the uncoupling & recoupling procedure.

In this case, nothing has changed except from November 15th 2021, these changes, accredited and approved training centres along with approved assessors at the respective sites. This means they will now be able to undertake the 3A test onsite with the students.
