A Category C+E (or Class 1) licence means you can drive articulated vehicles over 3,500kg (3.5 tonnes) with a trailer over 750kg. This licence is used to drive the largest vehicles on the road.
Want to learn to drive articulated trucks and advance from Class 2? Our Category C+E licence training takes you through all the skills you’ll need to pass first time – and we have the highest DVSA pass rates in the industry.
The training is on a 1:1 basis, with one of our expert instructors, in a modern Scania articulated truck, with an 8,000kg loaded trailer. We’ll also give you an LGV Workbook to map and record your progression, which you’ll be able to show to a prospective employer when you apply for a job.
It’s possible to combine your Category C and Category C+E licence training, then take the tests back to back. Just call us on 0345 4507735 for more details.
Requirements: a Category C licence, a provisional C+E licence
What next: In order to drive ‘for hire or reward’, you will also need to pass your module 2 and 4 tests as part of your Driver CPC. This is part of UK driving licence legislation.
Ask about our START PLUS package. We’ve designed a driver support service that works alongside our training package to take care of all the booking, payment and provisional licence processes, as well as your module 2 and 4 tests. On successful completion of all the START PLUS elements, you’ll have your licence and a Driver Qualification Card valid for 5 years.

I could not say enough good things about both these instructors. Both of them were patient, encouraging, friendly, and thoroughly professional it was a very good experience. Ps and the girls in the office are nice too.”– Jeff S
