One of the services that we offer is the Driver CPC training for the LGV heavy goods vehicles.
There are two categories of Large Goods Vehicle (LGV), license entitlement and Medium Goods Vehicle (MGV) we offer the driver cpc for both of these. Then there are the categories such as C1 (MGV), C (rigid, class 2) and CE (class 1, arctic or drawbar). Knowing which categories you fall in will help you decide which of the training course offered by cpc Manchester is best for you.
Category C1 – Age 18
These vehicles weigh more than 3.5 tonnes but do not exceed more than 7.5 tonnes G.V.W (Gross Vehicle Weight). As long as a trailer does not exceed 750 KG G.V.W., it might be towed.
If you passed the car test before 1997, you gain C1 automatically. This exempts you from requiring the initial driver CPC qualification. However you will need driver CPC for LGVs to drive it professionally. This is overlooked a lot of the time by recovery drivers especially ones who use there own car and a trailer.
Category C – Age 18
The Category C driver CPC is required to drive the vehicles having gross weight in excess of 7.5 tonnes but not exceeding 32 tonnes GVW. The Category C was formerly known as class 2 or HGV 2. The best description of Category C is a rigid vehicle means that both the cab and trailer are joined together permanently.
Category CE – Age 18
You must gain category CE license entitlement if you wish to drive a drawbar type or articulated vehicles. The letter E in the CE represents the trailer element. This category was formerly known as class 1 of HGV 1. It means that you are allowed to drive any type of large goods vehicle. Also, passing the practical test of CE would get you on the B+E and C1+E entitlement.
You achieve the C+E HGV entitlement via stage testing and before you can take the CE (class 1) test, it is essential that you have cleared the Category C (class 2) practical test. There is no limitation of passing the C1 driving test first for the new ones who wish to get Category C entitlement. We offer a range of driver cpc course in Manchester that are suitable for artic drivers. Call us today to discuss your options.
