              • Category C1 allows the holder to drive a large goods vehicle with a maximum authorised mass (gross vehicle weight) of up to 7,500 kg with a trailer up a maximum authorised mass of up to 750 kg. This licence can be obtained at 18 years of age and is the replacement for the HGV Class 3 in the UK.
              • Category C1+E allows the holder to drive a large goods vehicle with a maximum authorised mass (gross vehicle weight) of up to 7,500 kg with a trailer over 750 kg maximum authorised mass, provided that the maximum authorised mass of the trailer does not exceed the unladen mass of the vehicle being driven and that the combined maximum authorised mass of both the vehicle and trailer does not exceed 12,000 kg.
              • Category C allows the holder to drive any large goods vehicle with a trailer with a maximum authorised mass of up to 750 kg. This is effectively the new HGV Class 2 in the UK, the old HGV Class 2 being any rigid goods vehicle with more than two axles.
              • Category C+E: allows the holder to drive any large goods vehicle with a trailer with a maximum authorised mass of over 750 kg. This licence could only be obtained after 6 months experience of a Class 2 truck, but more recently the law has changed to the effect that you can now do back to back tests, i.e. Category C first then C+E the following week. This is the new Class 1 licence.

Please be aware that before being able to drive for a living, drivers who passed their car test after 1996 and had not passed a Large Goods Vehicle Test by 9.9.09 will be required to complete a two part Certificate of Professional Competence examination. Those drivers who fall outside the above categories will be able to drive for a living but must undertake 35 hours of classroom based periodic Driver CPC training before September, 2014 for them to be able to continue to drive professionally after this date. Similar rules also apply to PCV drivers but they commenced 12 months earlier – ask for details.
