Lines open Mon – Thu: 9am - 7pm, Fri: 9am - 5.30pm

If you already have a Category C1 licence, and you want to tow more weight without retraining on a larger vehicle, then Category C1+E training is for you.

Completing Category C1+E training means you can drive a total of 12 tonnes in a vehicle weighing between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes (although the weight of the trailer may not exceed the unladen weight of the vehicle). While we usually recommend the Category C or C+E course, which gives you broader job opportunities for the same time and cost to train, you may not wish to drive larger trucks. If that’s the case, the C1+E is for you.

  • Why should I take the Category C1+E training?

    • Tow more weight without retraining on a larger vehicle
  • What can I drive with after my Category C1+E training?

    • Removal trucks with additional trailer space
    • Tow large caravans, boats or motorbike trailers
    • Tow tree shredders and other heavy machinery
