LGV - C +E Lorries with trailers - up to 44 tonnes

There is increasing demand for LGV drivers particularly due to increased online shopping, with the earning potential up to 30K. LGV C+E is also known as HGV class 1. It will allow you to drive any rigid vehicle with a trailer over 750kg (up to combined weight of 44 tonnes).  It also allows you to drive articulated Lorries or trucks with a drawbar trailer. You will automatically be entitled to get category C+E and category B+E as well as category D+E once you passed your LGV C+E test.

In order to obtain you have to take these few steps:


You have already took first step by coming to us, At Driver Training School we will help you at every step. We guarantee you a pass. In order to obtain category C+E first you have to pass LGV category C.  You do not need any theory test, but you need provisional category C+E.

We will book you for an assessment, where ONE of our DSA approved instructors will assess your driving ability and will give you an idea of training you require and costs. Our average training course is 3 days. You may require less or more than average based on the assessment.
We provide training on ONE to ONE basis. We also provide refresher course. If you're a newly qualified or inexperienced HGV Class 1 / LGV C+E licence holder, you may like a practice session, or a refresher lesson on our articulated vehicle.

You can progress quickly from C to C+E by needing only a few hours training by using the LGV C training vehicle that you've just passed your test on and that you're already familiar with but this time using the C vehicle with a trailer attached.

To arrange your Assessment Lesson, simply phone us or complete the booking form on the Contact us Page. And we'll get in touch with you straight away to confirm your booking.
