  3. Hazard perception practice: The hazard perception section of the LGV or PCV Theory Test can be challenging for some people, especially if they are not used to identifying potential hazards on the road specific to these types of vehicles. Taking a practice test can help you develop your hazard perception skills and improve your scores on this section of the test.
