LGV C (Class 2) Driver Training

What Is A Category C Licence?

LGV Category C, also known as Class 2, is the licence required to drive a rigid lorry weighing up to 32 tonnes without a trailer.

This licence is typically used for local and regional deliveries, tippers, waste vehicles and cement mixers.

You can take your category C test at the age of 18, providing that you already hold a car licence.

Entry Requirements

Before practical driver training, you will need to:

  • Complete a medical assessment and apply for your provisional licence
  • Pass your LGV theory tests

We can arrange this for you as part of our LGV Starter Pack.

LGV Class 2 Training

The Course

Our category C driver training course is completed on a 1-to-1 basis over 2 full days, returning for your practical test on a third and final day.

We use fully automatic vehicles for training purposes. By passing in a vehicle with an automatic transmission, you will still be issued a full manual lorry licence. We specify our training vehicles from new to ensure your driver training is as easy as possible.

Throughout your course, we will:

  • Introduce you to the vehicle
  • Build your confidence driving large goods vehicles
  • Correct your driving style in preparation for your driving test
  • Complete the reverse exercise training and assessment
  • Practice the “show me, tell me” questions you will be asked at the start of your 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, and we’ll test you when you feel confident.
  • Module 3B: a 60-minute on-the-road drive. A DVSA driving examiner will conduct this at the end of your practical training course. You will take your test on the same roads that you train on.

Driver CPC

If you intend to use your LGV licence professionally (i.e. use your licence for work purposes or 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.

Free Accommodation

If you are travelling more than 70 miles then you will qualify for Free Accommodation in a local Premier Inn.

Class 2 (also known as a rigid lorry or category C) allows you to drive any sized lorry without a trailer. 

Class 1 (also known as an artic or category CE) allows you to drive any sized lorry with a trailer; it’s the top HGV licence you can have.

From applying for your provisional to sitting your test, it takes around 12 weeks. There may be ways we can speed this up.

Everything is booked to suit your commitments.

Yes, you can.

Prior to November 2021, you had to complete your Class 2 test before you could train for Class 1.

You can now take a fast-track route from Car to CE – click here for more information.

Depending on your circumstances and where you live, you could be entitled to funding or finance. Check out our funding and finance page for more information.
