A category C1 license allows drivers to drive vehicles between 3.5 tonnes and 7.5 tonnes.

This course is a hit among paramedics, ambulance drivers, horsebox owners and large motorhome  seeking to enhance their work skills and expand their vehicle options.
Before you hit the road, we need to take care of a few important steps. Starting off, you’ll need to complete a driver’s medical examination.  Let’s get you one step closer to your C1 license!

Let our team at Andy Swan HGV Training take care of booking your C1 medical exam for you. Once you pass your medical, we will apply to get your provisional C1 license and arrange your theory tests.

There are 2 if you wish to drive a C1 vehicle privately such as a horsebox or ambulance.  If you want to drive a C1 vehicle for hire and reward you will need to complete the third theory test which is the CPC Module 2 case study theory test.

  • Multiple Choice Test
  • Hazard Perception Test
  • MOD 2 CPC (if required)

Once you have passed all of your theory tests, it will then be time for you to complete your C1 driver training course

You will be taught by one of our NRI Registered Instructors who are experts in their field. They will teach you all the necessary skills to safely navigate the roads and master the manoeuvres required to successfully pass the C1 DVSA practical test.

After your training has been completed and you are confident it will then be time to take your DVSA driving test.

If you want to drive a C1 vehicle for hire and reward then you will need to take a further practical test which is the Module 4 CPC.

This is a show-me-tell-me practical where you are required to demonstrate your knowledge and ability in areas such as vehicle safety, securing loads and your ability to manage emergency situations.
