C1 7.5 Tonne Driving Test – How it Works:

We take the stress out of obtaining your C1 driving licence. There are several steps to follow to get your licence but we will do everything for you with just one phone call! No sweating over how to fill in licence forms or looking for the right theory revision app, we’ll do the lot! Lot’s of training companies will expect you to organise your own medical and theory test, and won’t really be interested in talking to you until you’ve done that. We believe that your training provider should be there every step of the way, taking the stress out of the process completely.

Here’s how it works when you book your C1 training with us:

  1. Contact us. We’ll take your details, organise your medical and give you access to our theory test revision resource so you can start revising straight away. We’ll fill in your D2 form and post it to you to check and sign.
  2. Attend your medical, the doctor will complete your D4 form, you can then send this, with your D2 and licence to DVLA
  3. When your licence is returned it will (all being well) have provisional entitlement for category C1. This means that you can now contact us to book your theory.
  4. On passing your theory test you can now book your practical training and test.

If you want to drive professionally you will need to take your CPC part-2 case studies test and CPC part-4. You don’t need to do this for paramedic/ambulance driving or for private use i.e. motorhome.

If required you can then go on to do your C1+E which will enable you to tow trailers over 750kgs with a C1 vehicle and also upgrade your car licence to B+E.

If you would prefer to organise your own medical and theory test and complete the provisional licence application that’s fine too, we’re happy to accomodate you whatever stage in the process you are at. Even if it’s just a phone call for some free advice, we’re happy to help. We’ll do as much as possible on your behalf, just one phone call gets the process underway.

Our C1 training vehicle

Due to the way the legislation for the test is worded, it’s possible to take the 7.5 tonne lorry (C1) driving test in a panel van. Our Iveco Daily is easier to drive than a lorry, meets the requirements of the test and is equipped with a reversing camera to make the reversing exercise super easy.
