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.

Category C Class 2 LGV HGV Training Ipswich Bury St Edmunds SuffolkRenault Premium 300dCi – 26,000kg We only recommend a full length 20 Hour Category C 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!!!

£Contact – price includes the practical test fees of £40 & £115.

Once you have passed both your Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception theory tests your C practical course can be arranged and the practical tests can be booked – the tests are approximately 0.5 hours & 1 hour.

The Category C practical test consists of several parts:

  • Show Me Tell Me C‘ – You will be asked 5 questions from the list
  • Reverse Manoeuvre Test 3a – Off Road (See Below)
  • General Road Driving Test 3b – On Road
  • Independent Drive – On Road included in 3b
When attending training and test you MUST have your photocard licence and theory certificate.

Sorry about the windy day!

Upon passing your Category C practical test, your examiner will send your licence to the DVLA for updating to the full entitlement.  The DVLA will also add the Category C+E provisional entitlement.

If you are planning to drive a LGV for a living and are required to do the Driver Initial CPC Qualification, then that is the next step.


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.
