Additional Information

What licence do you need?

If you plan to drive a horsebox and the weight of the vehicle is between 3.5 tonne and 7.5 tonne then you will need to apply for a C1 provisional, complete theory tests, attend driver training and take a DVSA medium goods practical driving test.

Larger horseboxes generally are kitted out more like a caravan, with kitchenette, toilets and come with 2 or more stalls, with more storage space for tack and equipment.

If you plan to drive a horsebox that is over 7.5 tonnes you will need to obtain a Category C licence.

What is included in this course?

To add the C1 category to your licence there are several steps that you will need to complete before you can drive a horsebox (up to 7.5 tonne) legally on the UK roads.  Here at 2 Start we will help you every step of the way, our horsebox training package includes:

  • D2 licence application – This form is to apply for your provisional licence.
  • D4 medical form – this is completed by the doctor when you have your medical. Assistance in completing these can also be given.
  • Medical – Booked for you locally at a convenient time.
  • Theory revision issued – A login will be issued so that you can start to revise your theory tests on our online revision site.
  • Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception theory tests booked – These will be booked at your local theory test centre at a time convenient to you. These can be booked individually or both together.
  • 4 days driver training including DVSA test – Each day’s training is 3.5 hours long on a 1:1 ratio with your instructor.
Horseboxes and Trailers

If you are planning to drive a vehicle over 7.5 tonne with a trailer over 750kgs, you will need a C1+E licence.

If the vehicle and towed horsebox has a combined MAM of both exceeding 12,000kg then a C+E licence will be required.

Do I need drivers CPC?

By law anyone who drives a vehicle over 3.5 tonnes professionally, for hire or reward is required to complete CPC Training

If you are driving as part of a hobby or for personal use such as going to amateur shows or taking your horse to the vets, you will not need a drivers CPC.

Course Reviews

I have done an online CPC course through 2START. It's efficient and the most comfortable way to do it. The trainer been kind, helpful and able to answer all of our questions. I'll use the service of 2START in the future too

Absolutely brilliant company with brilliant instructors, I have just passed my C+E, Robin was my instructor and he is a top man, I passed with only 3 minor faults, his instruction was perfect and he was clear and concise and patient, I will definitely use 2 Start again in the future. I can’t recommend 2 Start more highly.
