To be able to complete this package, you must already hold your LGV Category C Rigid licence.
If you don’t hold your Category C Licence yet, please check out our combined C and C+E packages.
How to obtain your C+E licence
Our LGV 1 Platinum Package is the perfect course for those who already hold their Category C HGV licence wanting to progress and work towards gaining their C+E licence.
If you are looking to obtain your Class 1 licence, there are two avenues that you can go down, one being to first gain your LGV 2 rigid-bodies licence and gain experience in operating Category C vehicles. The other option is to complete one of our fast track car to C+E courses, which will allow you to go straight from a Category B car licence to a C+E artic licence.
If you want to go down the route of gaining your LGV 2 licence before gaining your LGV 1 licence, you can choose from one of our CAT C training courses, all of which will give you the knowledge and skills needed to pass your practical test. However, if you want to go straight for your Class 1 licence, you will have to complete one of our Fast Track car to C+E courses.
What will the course cover?
If you opt to complete our LGV 1 Platinum Package, your course will include 17.5-hours of HGV driver training including the 3a and 3b driving tests. Our expert instructors will ensure that whilst you are out on the road, you will be taught about keeping safe and ensuring other road users are safe.
You will also have the opportunity to practice the manoeuvres required to pass your 3a and 3b tests.
Additionally, you will have two LGV 1 pass protection, giving you a second and third attempt at your test, should you fail the first one. Also, if you pass your LGV 1 on your first attempt, you will get a free 5-day ADR or HIAB course.

What certification will you receive?
If you complete our LGV 1 Platinum Package, you will be given the skills and knowledge needed to pass your HGV Class 1 driving test and obtain your Class 1 licence.
