How much does HGV or LVG training cost.

What is HGV training?

Training for Heavy Goods Vehicles (also known as Large Goods Vehicles) is designed to give drivers the confidence and skills necessary for these larger vehicles. There are two different categories of licence for Heavy Goods Vehicles, C and C+E, which each allow the driver to operate different types of vehicles.

 

What is the difference between Classification C and Classification C+E?

The Licence Category Classification C (also known as Cat C, LGV 2, HGV 2 and LGV Class 2) qualification allows drivers to operate vehicles over 3,500kg (with a trailer up to 750kg MAM). Licence Category Classification C+E (also known as Cat CE, LGV 1, HGV 1 and LGV Class 1) is a follow-on course from LGV 2. In order to take this course, you must have passed your LGV 2 qualification first. The C+E qualification will allow you to drive category C vehicles with a trailer over 750kg.

For more information on Category C and Category C+E licence categories, visit our LGV 2 and LGV 1 pages or the Gov.uk website.
