HGV / LGV Driver Training Basildon

Our aim is to provide the best quality HGV training for the local people in Basildon and throughout Essex. Having an HGV driving licence is essential for anyone who drives professionally for a company or organisation.

If you don’t have a valid operator’s licence, your vehicle could be impounded and scrapped after 21 days, and receive a fine of up to £1000.

Our professional, experienced instructors help drivers to quickly as our plan is to get you on the road as soon possible. We have over 28 years of experience and more than enough knowledge to train people to achieve their HGV licences.

We train drivers all over Essex, London, Kent and Suffolk!

Sigma Studies have years of HGV / LGV driver training experience

There are four different HGV licences:

CAT C Licence:

This is the entry level of HGV licence. This is a requirement if you are driving a vehicle over 3,500kg. The minimum age requirement for this is 18 years old. As the most popular HGV licence in the UK it is used for most local/national deliveries.

CAT C1 Licence:

Anyone who finished their car test prior to January 1997, already has this by rights. If you hadn’t we can offer the training needed to obtain this licence.

This licence gives you the right to drive vehicles weighing between 3,500 kg and 7,500 kg, with a trailer, without a trailer the vehicle shouldn’t weigh over 750 kg.


This licence 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 Licence:

To obtain this HGV licence, you must have a Cat C licence already. The minimum age is 18 years old. This is used for nationwide deliveries.

With our help you will be taught everything you will need to pass these tests and get onto the road.
