LGV Category C


Product Description

The LGV Category C licence was formerly commonly known as HGV class 2.
The LGV Category C licence will allow drivers who pass the Category C driving test to drive any rigid Category C vehicle up to 32 tonnes.
Once you successfully pass your LGV Cat C test, you will obtain Category C on your licence as well as Category C1 (7.5 tonne licence).

Product Specification

LGV Category C (HGV Class 2) Requirements
In order to attend any of our LGV Category C courses (HGV Class 2 courses), you must be at least 18 years of age and have a full Category B licence (car licence).
Assuming you already have a Category B driving licence, your first step is attend and pass an LGV medical test (unless you have already completed a medical for an PCV licence). You should be available to arrange for your local GP to conduct this medical, and they will confirm what fee is applicable. You will need to take a D4 Medical Form with you, and the doctor will complete the form accordingly.
Once you have passed your LGV Medical Examination, you must then make an application to the DVLA for your Category C provisional licence. In order to make this application, you will need to complete a D2 Application, which can be ordered online or can be obtained from your local post office.
At this stage of applying for your Category C provisional licence it is also worth applying for Category D1 (PCV Minibus) and Category D (PCV -Bus/Coach), as currently there is no fee for applying for these provisional entitlements, and should you decide to progress onto any of these tests in the future, it will save you from having to re apply for the provisional entitlement, and avoid incurring any possible future fees.

Product Features

The final step you must complete before attending our LGV Category C training course is to sit and pass your LGV theory test, which can be booked online at the DVSA's website, or by calling the DVSA booking line on 0300 200 1122.

When booking your theory test you will need to book and pass both the LGV Multiple Choice (Module 1a) and LGV Hazard Perception (Module 1b) theory tests. It is also recommended that you book your LGV CPC Case Study (Module 2) at this stage, however it is not essential or required for you to pass this theory test before taking your practical training or LGV practical test.

If you have previously already passed your LGV theory test in order to acquire a C1 licence, and are upgrading to Category C, then you will not be required to re take the LGV theory test again.
