Categories / Licence Classifications and Vehicle type

   
  We hope the following list of licence types and vehicle categories helps you to decide which type of training is suitable for your requirements  
 

HGV / LGV Cat 'C+E' (Class 1)

Any vehicle over 7.5t that has a detachable or separate trailer, Cat 'C+E' licences can only be applied for once the driver has taken and passed their Cat 'C'. These are larger vehicles so tend to be used for long haul, national and international routes.

HGV / LGV Cat 'C' (Class 2)

For vehicles in a rigid-based body that is over 7.5t – examples include fire engines, rubbish collection vehicles and any HGV, providing the vehicle is all one unit (i.e. the cab does not separate from the trailer). Usually operated in towns and cities.

  Cat C1

For use if driving any goods vehicle that is above 3.5t and below 7.5t in weight. If you gained your driving licence before 1997, you will automatically have this category on your licence. If you gained your driving licence after 1997, you will have to take a test.

vehicles that exceed 3500kg but do not exceed 7500kg

 
  Cat C1+E

Same as above, but gives you the capacity to tow a trailer behind your C1 vehicle

vehicles that do exceed 7500 kg and can tow a trailer not exceeding 750kg

 
 

Cat B+E

This enables you to tow an item behind a standard car. Again, if you passed before 1997 you do not need to pass a test to tow a trailer behind a car – if you passed after 1997, a full course and driving test is required.

  Cat D

This is a full bus / coach licence, enabling you to drive any sized Passenger Carrying Vehicle.

category d full bus, coach licence

 
  Cat D1

Enables you to drive a minibus of 9-16 seats maximum. If you passed your driving test before 1997 this category will already be on your licence, if you passed after that date a full course and test is required.
