B (Car licence) straight to LGV C+E (HGV Class 1) Complete Course & Driver CPC




  • This is a complete package for anyone wanting to take advantage of the 15th November 2021 changes that allow you to bypass taking the LGV C (Class 2) test, and actually go straight for your LGV C+E (Class 1) test. This course also includes the Driver CPC Initial Qualification which allows you to drive Large Goods Vehicles commercially.
    Note: This course will include lessons in a LGV C (Class 2 rigid) vehicle to begin with to help you feel more confident driving a Large Goods Vehicle.

What you’ll achieve:

  • On completion of this course and all tests are passed, you will be licensed to drive any LGV/HGV vehicle, either rigid or articulated.
  • This course also includes the Driver CPC Initial Qualification Module 2 and 4 tests which when passed you’ll be issued with Driver Qualification Card from the DVLA valid for 5 years. To keep this DQC valid beyond 5 years you’ll need to attend a 35 hour Driver CPC Periodic Training course, which can be booked as a one day (7hr) course say every year to spread out the cost and time off work, or can be done as a five day (35hr) block.


  • Realistically you should plan for the whole process to take about 3 months, but this can depend on medical appointments and how efficient the DVLA are at sending your provisional licence back.
  • You will also need to allow time to study for your theory tests, and a day off work to go to the Theory Test Centre to take your theory tests.
  • The practical driving lessons will start with a 12 hour LGV Category C (Class 2) rigid truck course spread over 2 to 3 days. During this first course you’ll complete the Driver CPC Module 4 practical demonstration test.
  • Then we’ll move you on to a 20 hour course in an LGV C+E (Class 1) vehicle spread over 3 to 4 days. You’ll take the Module 3a (off-road) test at our yard. Then you’ll take the Module 3b (on-road) test at the DVSA Test Centre.

This package includes:

  • Medical (Booked at a date and time to suit you).
  • Provisional Paperwork (We’ll help you fill this in).
  • Theory test booking service (Let us take the stress out of booking the 3 theory tests you need to pass).
  • Login access for the Driving Theory 4 All theory study website
  • Driving Theory 4 All study app for your phone or tablet
  • 3 Theory Test Fees (LGV Multiple Choice, LGV Hazard Perception, and LGV CPC Case Study Mod 2).
  • 40 hours of vehicle and instructor hire (All our LGV training vehicles have automatic gearboxes. From April 2014  you get a full manual licence even if you take it in an auto, as long as you passed your car test in a manual).
  • DVSA Driver CPC Module 4 practical demonstration test fee (£55)
  • DVSA C+E Module 3a (off-road) test fee (£40)
  • DVSA C+E Module 3b (on-road) test fee (£115)
