LGV C1+E Training
If you need to tow a trailer with your van or truck, then you need to pass either the B+E or C1+E test.
Van or trucks that are heavier than 3.5kg are C1 vehicles. So to drive this type of vehicle with a trailer you need C1+E entitlement.
Civil engineers towing mini diggers or mini excavators, Arboreal Specialists and Tree Surgeons towing chippers and mulchers. Recovery vehicle drivers and Recreational Vehicles towing leisure craft, cars, motor bikes or boats behind their RV's may all need the C1+E entitlement.
We also deliver training for RDT - Rapid Deployment Trailers often used by breakdown and recovery service supplies like the RAC.
Our C1+E training is on a 5.5 tonne van with box trailer and is based in Wembley and Park Royal.
On passing C1+E, you can drive a 7.5 tonne vehicle towing a trailer up to 4.5 tonnes giving a Maximum Train Weight (MAM) of 12 tonnes.
If you passed your car test before January 1997, you may hold C1 entitlement but to take C1+E training & test, you must obtain provisional C1+E entitlement and pass LGV theory tests before your driver training and test can be arranged.
And remember driving C1 and C1+E vehicles for a living means you also need Driver CPC. As Wallace is an accredited provider, when upgrading from C1 to C1+E, your practical driver training can count towards your Driver CPC Periodic Training Hours. Click here to more details.
