LGV 1 Driver Training:

Training sessions start at 07:00, 10:30 and 14:00 with a one-to-one instructor-trainee ratio over a 3.5-hour period.

This provides the instructor with enough time each day to fully instruct drivers on different test routes and exercises required to pass your test.

We can provide you with the very best facilities including reversing areas on-site at our Portsmouth, Reading, Southampton and Worthing depots.


Our LGV 1 C+E Training vehicles are new CF DAFs pulling a 30ft twin axle box trailer. All of our LGV 1 vehicles are articulated – tractor unit and trailer. We don’t use wagon and drag vehicle combinations.

Our vehicles have automatic gearboxes and all the modern features you would expect to see on trucks in the industry today.

Application process

To obtain this licence you must have first taken the lower category C licence LGV 2.

There are no more medicals and theory tests to complete for this licence acquisition. As this would have been done either at the Category C1 or Category C stage.

Test Criteria

On your LGV 1 driving test, you will be examined on your general driving and set exercises. The set exercises will include:

  • An ‘S’ shaped reverse into a bay
  • Demonstrating the uncoupling and re-coupling procedure as you’re taking a test with a trailer

The drive on the road lasts roughly 60 minutes and the overall test takes roughly 90 minutes.  During the driving test, the examiner will give you directions that you must follow. Test routes are designed to be as uniform as possible and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions.

Training Locations

LGV 1 C+E Training is available to businesses and individuals across Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight.
