Earn more and drive the biggest trucks on the road with a Category C+E licence.

Your earning potential in a Category C+E vehicle is up to 32k a year, and with the increase in online shopping and deliveries, there’s no better time to become an HGV driver. Category C+E drivers often have the opportunity to drive abroad.

Also, the working pattern can mean that you’ll work a few days, followed by a few days off, meaning you can grab a few days quality time with your family. Completing the back to back course means you’ve got the best of both worlds – you can take your pick. Long haul or local drops? A few hours work or a few days work at a time? It’s your decision.

  • Why should I take the Category C+E course?

    • Train in just 4 days
    • Earn up to £32k a year
    • More opportunity to drive abroad
    • Longer periods off with 'days-on-days-off' shift patterns
  • What can I drive after my Category C course?

    • Articulated ('artic') trucks
    • Rigid (or 'Category C') trucks with a trailer unit
    • Tractors with a long trailer unit
