LGV Category C (Formerly HGV Class 2)
The LGV Category C licence was formerly commonly known as HGV class 2. The LGV Category C licence will allow drivers who pass the Category C driving test to drive any rigid Category C vehicle up to 32 tonnes. Once you successfully pass your LGV Cat C test, you will obtain Category C on your licence as well as Category C1 (7.5 tonne licence).
LGV Category C (Formerly HGV Class 1)
There is no theory test requirement to obtain a C+E licence. This is because the "+E" part of a driving entitlement simply means "and trailer over 750kg". By adding the right to tow a trailer, you are simply extending your existing Category C entitlements (for which you would have already passed a theory test for) as opposed to obtaining a new category of licence.
With a Category C1 Licence you will be eligible to drive an LGV of between 3,500kg and 7,500kg. You can also add a trailer of no more than 750kg. This vehicle is commonly known as a 7.5 ton, Class 3 or C1, and is typically used for making local supermarket deliveries, or removals.
If you passed your driving test after the 1st January 1997 you will need to pass a trailer towing test to get the E category on your licence. This allows you to tow caravans or trailers over 750kg, or a maximum loaded weight of under 3500kg combined loaded weight for the car and trailer.
We have our own cars and trailers that meet all the requirements of the DVSA in size, weight and load for you to use for your training and test.
We offer refresher training for all LGV driving categories. Refresher training is great especially if you're about to start a new job or take an assessment!
It can help you freshen up on your skills and techniques and leave you feeling confident and ready for your new start!
We offer re-tests for all training categories the cost for each re-test may vary dependant on category.
We hope that you won't require one but its always good to know in advance the cost if the worst were to happen.
You can also do a re-test with us if you failed with another company.
