LGV Truck Training Step By Step Guide

Driving Talent offer candidates a comprehensive LGV training package for both Class 2/ CAT C and Class 1/ CAT C+E training courses.

LGV Class 2/ HGV Category C Training

Class 2/ CAT C allows professional drivers to drive “rigid bodied vehicles” which are smaller trucks that do not have a separated cab. This means you will have an array of driving career-paths wide open to you, but you will not be allowed to legally drive these vehicles without the correct licensing.

LGV Class 1/ HGV Category C+E Training

This is the most obvious next step for many of our candidates, passing your Class 1/ CAT C+E allows you to give much larger vehicles such as articulated lorries or arctic trucks.

You must have already passed your Class 1/ CAT C practical test in order to take a Class 1/ CAT C+E test and unlike rigid bodied vehicles, these trucks feature a cab that is separated from the trailer.
