Driving a Category C1 vehicle is a lot like driving a car or a van, and anybody over 18 with a driving licence can qualify to drive one. If you passed your driving test before January 1997 and you hold a valid CPC, you can drive a C1 vehicle without further training.

First Time Pass

Thank you to all staff at The LGV training company. I was sent to a fantastic driving school in Hook where the instructors were fantastic and have an excellent knowledge of test routes and things to look out for. I was a bit nervous about taking my test on day 4, but in actual fact I passed first time with only 3 minors. I'd recommend The LGV training company to anyone adding additional entitlements to their licence or looking for employment within the sector.
