Drawbar to Artic Conversion

If you passed your Category C+E (Class 1) using a Wagon & Drag or if you have been driving a Wagon & Drag for many years you may find it a bit daunting when working for an employer who only uses artics.

Just think how many artics you see on the roads against how many Wagon & Drags you see – there is high probability that you will drive an artic sooner rather than later!

Imagine starting your new job after passing your test in a Wagon & Drag and your first task being to uncouple the tractor unit from one trailer and couple to another – do you know how to operate the coupling system on an artic?  Or how about arriving at your drop and then discovering how different the reversing is due to the vastly different pivot point – do you really want to have to teach yourself on the job?

We have the solution:

  • 4 Hour Conversion Course – £326
  • 6 Hour Extended Conversion Course – £489
The Conversion Course is ideal if you have many years of LGV/HGV driving experience and would feel happier about having someone go over everything with you.

The Extended Conversion Course is for people who are still relatively new to driving a LGV/HGV, or may not have driven for sometime.  Being a longer course, it will give you more time to practice the artic specific procedures.

Both courses will cover reversing, un-coupling/recoupling and general road driving.  Your tuition will be provided by one of our LGV/HGV instructors who have many years experience between them.
