HGV & LGV Driver Training Chelmsford
If you drive an HGV or LGV without the valid operator license, your vehicle will be impounded and scrapped after 21 days, and you can receive a fine of up to £1000.

There are four different HGV licenses:
CAT C License:
This is the entry level of HGV license and is a requirement if you are driving a vehicle over 3,500kg. The minimum age requirement for this is 18 years old and is the most popular HGV license in the UK, used for most local or national deliveries.
CAT C1 License:
Anyone who finished their car test prior to January 1997 already has this by rights and if not, we can offer the training needed to obtain this license. This license gives you the right to drive vehicles weighing between 3,500 kg and 7,500 kg, with a trailer, without a trailer the vehicle should not weigh over 750 kg.
This license gives you all the benefits from CAT C1 as well as being able to drive a vehicle with a trailer weighing less than 12,000 kg. The weight of the trailer, when fully loaded can not weigh more than the unladen weight of the vehicle.
CAT C+E License:
To obtain this HGV license, you must have a CAT C license already. The minimum age is 18 years old and this is used for nationwide deliveries.
