What Am I Able to Drive After Taking the Course?

The vehicle you can drive once receiving your licence depends on which licence you have achieved; Category C+E, Category C, Category C1+E, and Category C1.  

The Category C+E licence is the highest of the LGV licences, meaning you can drive the heaviest LGVs; vehicles that have a MAM (Maximum Authorised Mass) of over 7.5 tonnes with a trailer heavier than 750kg.  

The Category C is the licence held by most LGV drivers across the UK, and it allows you to drive vehicles including bin lorries, articulated lorries, and heavy box trucks.  

The Category C1+E is a lower class licence, and it covers vehicles between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes with a trailer of 750kg or more. This can include cargo vans or smaller tipper trucks.  

Finally, the Category C1 is the lowest of the LGV licences, and this is reserved for professional drivers operating transit vans and small box trucks. This licence doesn’t allow for a trailer to be towed.
