Additional Information

What licence do you need?

If you plan to drive a horsebox and the weight of the vehicle is between 3.5 tonnes and 7.5 tonnes then you will need to apply for a C1 provisional, complete theory test, attend driver training and take the 3a and 3b driving tests.

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 tonnes) legally on 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.
  • 14 hours driver training including the 3a and 3b driving tests.
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.
