The C1 driving licence allows people to drive vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. Drivers who pass the 7.5 tonne C1 test become entitled to drive C1 rigid vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes with a trailer up to 750kg.
Who should attend?
This course is for those who want to be able to drive an ambulance but do not yet have the C1 category on their driving licence. The C1 licence allows a learner to drive vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. Anyone who took their driving test after January 1997 will not automatically have a C1 licence.
In order to take the C1 licence course you must:
- Be 18 years or older
- Have a manual car (Cat B) licence. If you hold an EU licence, you will need to complete a D9 Form and obtain a UK licence with C1 provisional entitlement before attending the course
- Be able to read a new style number plate from 20 metres away (using glasses, if necessary)
- Have a Pass certificate for the LGV theory test
- Have completed the LGV medical examination.
To register for a place, please complete this short form.
Typically 1-3 days. Learners will undertake a driving assessment to see how much tuition they need before taking the C1 test.
