LGV C (up to 32 tonnes)
The Category C licence allows you to drive Class 2 vehicles or Rigid bodied lorry. They are fixed unit trucks, relatively easy to handle, with cabs normally equal in size to many articulated trucks. They are designed for travelling mostly on motorways over great distances and they have a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of up to 32 tones.
These Rigid lorries are used by operators who are new to the LGV industry or who simply don’t require a full size truck and they are ideal for those who have to visit places an articulated vehicle might find difficult.
Once you successfully pass your LGV Category C test, you will obtain Category C on your licence as well as Category C1 (7.5 tonnes). From age 18 onwards you can go straight to LGV C and drive any rigid lorry up to 32 tonnes.
After passing C you can go for LGV C+E, straight away with a back to back course or sometime in the future, and drive trailers including Articulated Vehicles and Drawbar combination up to 44 tonnes.
