What is C1 Driver Training?

C1 Driver Training will allow anyone who already holds a category B (car) licence to drive vehicles from 3, 500kgs/3.5-tonnes up to 7, 500kgs/7.5-tonnes with a trailer up to 750kgs. Completing C1 driver training will allow you to drive vehicles such as ambulances and some horseboxes.

If you are wanting to drive vehicles that fall into these categories, you will need to complete C1 driver training and gain your C1 licence.

How do I gain my C1 licence?

In order to complete one of our C1 courses, you need to:

  • To have a full category B licence (car)
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Complete CPC training if you’re driving as part of a job or for financial gain

The first step to completing your C1 training is to complete a driver medical, which is a higher standard medical required to drive a car. Your C1 medical can be booked for you by the team at 2 Start locally and conveniently for you. Once you have passed your medical, you will be required to gain your provisional C1 licence and then complete your theory tests. There are 3 theory tests that need to be completed which are:

  • Multiple-Choice test
  • Hazard Perception test
  • MOD 2 CPC (if required)

Once you have passed all of your theory tests, it will then be time for you to complete your selected C1 driver training course. After your training has been completed and you are confident with your C1 driving ability, it will then be time to take your DVSA driving test! Additionally, you will need to complete the Module 4 CPC demonstration test if you are driving as part of a job or for financial gain.
