Category H – Tracked Vehicles

 

Category H is the entitlement you require if you wish to drive a tracked vehicle that is steered by means of it’s tracks on the road.  If you require your Category H licence then you must first pass a test for a vehicle in Category B (Car).  This is so that you can obtain the provisional Category H entitlement.

Generally, you must be at least 21 years old to drive these vehicle, although you may be able to drive them at 17 if you are a member of the armed force or if the maximum authorised mass of the vehicle is not more than 3,500kg.

Vehicles with sprung suspension and ‘resilient’ material between the rims of their weight-carrying rollers and the road surface (this could be rubber or other resilient material fitted as blocks on the tracks or resilient tracks) are limited to 20 mph (32 km/h).  Vehicles not so fitted are limited to 5 mph (approx. 8 km/h).

The current practical test fee is £62 and takes approximately 40 minutes.
