Category C1 Training

If you’re looking to undertake a C1 (7.5 Tonne/Ambulance) training course, then look no further than Wayside Transport. As the most reputable choice for LGV and PCV training, you can rest assured that your future is in safe and capable hands. Whether you’re an individual looking to kick-start your career or a seasoned professional looking to add an extra string to their bow, you’ll find that we’re the right choice for you.

Our comprehensive training programme will help steer applicants in the right direction, preparing them for a career on the road. There are two licence types available – Category C1 and Category C1+E. The latter category qualifies the driver to operate a vehicle that weighs no more than 7.5 tonnes while towing a trailer. You can find out more about these two qualifications by reading below.

Category C1+E (7.5 Tonne and Trailer)

But what if your job requires that you operate a trailer as well? If this is the case, then a Category C1 licence by itself won’t be sufficient. This licence only covers you to drive vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes in weight – nothing more. If you wish to tow a trailer as well, you must undertake Category C1+E training.

Upon completion of this training, you will be permitted to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg. Please note, however, that that the total weight of the trailer must not exceed the weight of the vehicle that is towing it.

If you would like to submit your interest for one of our Category C1 and C1+E training courses, call Wayside Transport today on 01202 873 911.
