Combined courses now available: In November 2021, significant changes were made to the HGV licence categories in the UK, allowing aspiring drivers the option to go directly to C+E (Class 1) without first acquiring the C (Class 2) or C1 licence. This means that drivers can now opt to take the training and test for the largest HGV/LGV category (also known as Class 1), which allows you to drive any vehicle and trailer combination, without having to obtain the lower category Class C licences first.

The legislative changes were made in response to the ongoing shortage of HGV drivers in the UK, which has since been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit. The government hopes that by simplifying the licensing process, more people will be encouraged to pursue a career in lorry driving and help address the HGV/LGV haulage driver shortage.
A1 has a proven track record in getting our customers on the road through providing full support at every stage. Starting with getting your provisional HGV licence and obtaining your CPC. We have tutored clients from across the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Warwickshire & The Black Country. It is important to note that the new HGV licensing rules apply only to those who are over 18 and have obtained the necessary driver pre-qualifications, such as a full car driving licence (Class B) and a valid Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). In addition, the C+E test is more challenging than the lower category tests, so it is vital for drivers to undergo proper training and preparation before taking their HGV driving test.
We want to make the whole process as easy and stress free as possible, which is why prior to the commencement of your course, we can help you obtain a medical report, provisional LGV driving license and arrange your LGV theory test. Make the smart choice and book you HGV/LGV course with us today.
