What is a C1 Category Vehicle?
Answer: A van or truck that has a gross vehicle weight between 3500kg and 7500kg. Examples include ambulances, parcel delivery trucks, horsebox lorries and small trucks.
The C1 driving test is based upon the lorry driving test, it's basically the same driving test but with a smaller vehicle. To be eligible to take this test you must take the following steps.
1. Visit us for a drivers medical, currently £65, phone us to book an appointment. The Doctor is with us every two weeks, you can use your own doctor but the cost will vary upto £200. ORDER the FORMS you will need.
2. Send off the forms we will give you to the DVLA with your driving licence. It will normally take around 3 weeks for your new licence with provisional C1 category to return. Contact us once you receive it and you can visit us for an assessment/trial lesson. This will give you the opportunity to see what we have to offer and we can suggest the correct duration of driver training to suit your ability. If you cannot visit us for an assessment you could book an 'average' length course.
3. Book your theory tests online at www.gov.uk/book-theory-test , you will need to take - LGV Theory Test & LGV Hazard Perception, and if you intend to drive for 'hire and reward' you will need to take the LGV Case Studies if you passed your car driving test after 1/1/1997, contact us for advice if needed. You can either buy the Books and DVD's from us to revise to pass the theory tests or sign up with www.drivingtheory4all.co.uk
4. Once you have passed your theory tests then contact us to book your driver training course as suggested by the driving assessment.
The driving test will last approximately 60 minutes, during which you will be required to complete a reversing exercise (see the picture below), then drive onto the roads during which you will complete uphill, downhill and angled starts, together with a controlled stop and moving away from the side of road in traffic.
Letters of Thanks from customers.
I would just like to say a big thank you for helping me achieve my C1 license to be able to train as a paramedic! All the staff were fantastic and very approachable, making me feel very welcome during my training sessions. I gained so much confidence in my driving ability. I would definately recommend Tockwith 100% for anyone who is looking into advance driving.
Thanks again! Ruth
