LGV Category C+E (Formerly HGV Class 1)
The LGV C+E test was formerly known as HGV Class 1. The LGV Category C+E licence will allow drivers to drive any rigid vehicle with a trailer over 750kg (truck and trailer) up to a combined weight of 44 tonnes. Drivers who pass the LGV C+E test will be entitled to drive articulated Lorries (Artics), or trucks with a drawbar and trailer.
C+E entitlement will also automatically grant you C1+E entitlements (7.5 tonne & trailer) and also Category B+E (Car & trailer towing) licences.
If you hold a PVC entitlements (i.e. Category D or Category D1), you will also inherit the entitlement to tow trailers over 750kg on these licences as well (i.e. Category D+E and Category D1+E) once you pass your LGV Category C+E test.
In order to attend our LGV C+E training courses, you must first have passed your Category C (Rigid Lorry) LGV test.
You must ensure that you have Category C+E provisional entitlement.
You will also need to ensure that your existing LGV Category C entitlement is still valid and has not expired (candidates over 45 will need to renew their LGV medical examination every 5 years for their LGV Category C licence entitlement to remain valid).
There is no theory test requirement to obtain a C+E licence, this is because the +E part of a driving entitlement simply means “and trailer over 750kg”. By adding the right to tow a trailer, you are simply extending your existing Category C entitlements (for which you would have already passed a theory test for) as opposed to obtaining a new category of licence.
