The HGV Category C+E course is ideal for current Category C licence holders who are looking to increase their earning potential or move into a different company. Having a Category C+E licence creates more opportunities, and allows you to choose from a wider range of available jobs with an increased wage.

You must be 18 years old to apply for this type of licence, attain your Cat ‘C’ licence and have your C+E entitlement on your licence. Unlike with the Cat ‘C’ licence no medicals or further legislation test need to be completed.

The HGV Training

All of HGV Training Network’s Instructors are fully qualified and trained to the best possible standards to enable them to provide you with the highest quality training experience.  To give you the best possible chance of passing your test first time our five day courses are filled with helpful tips that include: completing a daily walk around check (mirrors, gears, signalling and manoeuvring), how to use the road correctly, and details of the way the truck works, inside and out.  Our excellent courses provide our students with the confidence and knowledge of how to manage and operate such large vehicles.  Our instructors possess a wealth of knowledge; using every opportunity to learn from them will increase your chances of passing your test.

Day five is typically when it will be time for the test. You will have been given opportunity throughout the course to drive the common test routes and by this time should be familiar and confident with the roads.  As the tests are run independently by the DVSA, our team has no influence on the results.  However, all of our course instructors are experienced with the tests and will provide you with all the guidance and preparation you need to ensure the best possible chance of success at the first attempt.  We firmly believe that going into the test with a confident attitude will give you the best possible chance of passing first time; listening to your instructors advice will put you in the best possible position for this to happen.
