Category C Training

Category C (Class 2) LGV / HGV training runs around Ipswich, Suffolk and uses the DVSA Test Centre in Ipswich.

C is the category that allows you to drive a rigid vehicle over 3,500kg.  Typically these type of vehicles go up to 32,000kg.

It is also the category that you must pass to receive the C+E provisional entitlement in order to proceed to Category C+E Training.
