The Course

Our category C1+E driver training course is completed on a 1-to-1 basis and will typically follow the format below:

  • Day 1: Practice reverse manouvre, uncoupling and recoupling procedure, with assessment
  • Day 2: On-the-road practical driver training
  • Day 3: On-road practical driving test

The practical driving test is made up of two parts:

Module 3A: an ‘S shaped’ reverse exercise into a loading bay. During your driver training course, you’ll practice this exercise at our private reversing area.

Module 3B: a 60-minute on-the-road drive. This will be conducted by a DVSA driving examiner at the end of your practical training course.

Driver CPC

If you intend to use your LGV licence professionally (i.e., use your licence for work purposes/to be paid as a driver), you will need to complete your LGV Driver CPC qualification.

You can read more about Driver CPC by clicking here.

Pass Protection

For additional peace of mind, some customers wish to invest our Pass Protection insurance, priced at £395 including VAT.

This entitles you to 2 x Module 3A Retests (reverse exercise) and 2 x Module 3B Retests (on-road test), worth £878.
