The Category C license is the entry level license into becoming a professional driver of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). This particular vehicle is very easy to drive, and handles in a similar way to a larger car or van.
The category C license is the most commonly used HGV within the UK and Europe as it is very versatile and can access areas and small towns where larger vehicles cannot.
Drivers of this vehicle can earn a very generous wage with an average salary of up to £32k per year, for a 48-hour driving week.
Here at Eli-group we offer a complete service to all our customers wishing to gain the Cat C HGV license. We will guide you through the complete process, starting with the medical and provisional application. We then assist you with your theory revision, book your theory test followed by a fully qualified, accredited, practical training course and test.
The Category C + E
This large vehicle license category includes all of the biggest vehicles on the road! Also called an ‘articulated’ vehicle’ or referred to as an ‘artic,’ ‘HGV,’ ‘wagon and drag’ or ‘kingpin’, the bigger pulling power of this giant of the road makes it popular for UK and international distribution alike. Some C+E vehicles are made up of a tractor unit and long trailer; some are a Category C vehicle towing a trailer. Either way, it’s all the same licence, and you can test in either vehicle type without getting a restricted licence.
At Eli-Group we offer fully supported Category C+E training, giving Category C qualified drivers the opportunity to get qualified much more quickly. Plus, our excellent pass rates and customer reviews demonstrate the quality of our training programmes. And, even better, you don’t have to take a theory test
Combined C’ & ‘C+E’ licences
The combined back to back course is ideal for people who are looking to train in as short a timeframe as possible. The two training courses (‘C’ & ‘C+E’ licences) include all medical forms, licence application forms, Online Theory Test Revision materials, all DVSA Test Fees (for both Theory and Practical tests), vehicle hire, Instructor Hire and Fuel.
Booking the ‘Back to Back’ course saves you money against the price of booking the two courses separately.
Driver CPC training is a legal requirement, which develops HGV Drivers’ skills and knowledge. If you drive for professional reasons it is very likely you will need to complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years. You could face fines of up to £1k for driving professionally without it.
