Category C is the licence group required for a rigid LGV vehicle over 7.5 tonnes in weight. This course is usually taken by candidates looking for a career in the general road haulage industry.

3 Easy Steps to gaining your licence:

Step 1 – Medical & Provisional Licence Application

Step 2 – Theory Tests & Initial Driver CPC (if required)

Step 3 – Driving Tuition & DSA Practical test

At TAL Training we offer a range of services depending on individual requirements and have developed a starter pack for candidates that would like us to manage and support them through the process.

Starter pack includes:

  • A medical with our GP (on-site)
  • Assistance with applying for your provisional license
  • Theory test revision material (web based)
  • Theory test booking – Module 1 (Multiple Choice & Hazard Perception)
  • Theory test booking – Module 2 (CPC Module 2 if required)
  • 1 hour assessment drive (results used to develop a practical course to meet your individual training needs)

Once candidates have passed the LGV theory tests and completed an assessment drive the practical element of their training can then be planned.
