Category C+E Training

Category C+E (Class 1) LGV / HGV training runs around Ipswich, Suffolk and uses the DVSA Test Centre in Ipswich. C+E is the category that allows you to drive a vehicle over 3,500kg with a trailer over 750kg. Typically these type of vehicles go up to 44,000kg.

We only recommend a full length 20 Hour Category C+E course – don’t be tempted by the short courses offered by other trainers who are already planning your re-test. Ensure you are sufficiently prepared to maximise your chances of a first time pass!!!

20 Hours – £Contact – price includes the practical tests fee of £40 & £115.

The Category C+E practical test consists of several parts:

20 Hours – £Contact (course inc. test fee)

Our price increase is due to increased costs such as insurance, maintenance, Diesel and instructors – we want to keep providing you with the best quality instructors who are experienced at instructing – we don’t just put a bum on a passengers seat!!! And of course new test fees.
