The Category C+E is a vocational licence category which allows the holder to drive articulated heavy goods vehicles up to 44 tonnes. Previously referred to as a Class 1 driving licence. To undertake the standard category C+E training course you will need to currently hold a category C licence.
Wait – Have you considered Direct Category C+E?
If you do not have a category C licence already then you will need to look at going direct for a category C+E licence instead. Check out our Category C+E Training Direct page.
To undertake our standard C+E training you must hold a full UK Category C licence. Holding a category C licence will automatically give you the provisional for C+E.
The driving lessons for C+E consist of:
Four 4 hour lessons, and one hour long lesson before the test and vehicle hire for the practical driving test
During your lessons you will cover all the skills you need to pass both of your practical tests (Parts 3a and 3b – See Below)
As you already hold an HGV licence there is no need to complete your theories again and if you have been working you likely already have your driver CPC so this is not needed either. (If CPC is needed this will be an extra cost and we can confirm this with you at the time)
The practical training side only takes 1 week to complete and we can usually get you booked in within 3-4 weeks of paying your deposit.
You will pay a deposit of £400 which will allow us to pencil in your practical training and book your tests at a convenient time.
The remaining balance will be payable before you undertake your driving lessons and practical tests in the vehicle. This balance will be £1480 if you needed all the elements detailed above. It is also possible to arrange to pay this balance in stages.
Simply pay your deposit online today and our team will be in touch to book your medical and give you all the information you need and get the wheels rolling.
