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
This course is ideal for those who have already obtained their LGV 2 Category C licence, and are looking to upgrade to an LGV 1 artic licence.
If you do not already hold your Category C licence, there are two options that you can choose from to gain your LGV 1 licence. One way in which you can gain your LGV 1 licence is by completing one of our fast-track car to C+E training courses, which will allow you to go from a car licence to an artic.
The next way in which you can gain your C+E licence is by first completing your CAT C driver training and completing your LGV 2 driving test and then moving on to your artic licence once you have gained confidence and experience in driving a rigid-bodied vehicle.
If you want to gain your LGV 2 licence first, we have a variety of CAT C driver training courses for you to choose from, or you can complete one of our car to C+E fast track courses to straight from a car to an artic.
What will the course cover?
This package is ideal for candidates who already hold their Category C HGV licence and are looking to progress towards becoming an artic driver.
If you decide to complete our LGV Gold Package, your course will include 17.5-hours of HGV driver training including DVSA tests. Our highly trained instructors will take you out on the road and show you how to drive safely on the roads, keeping you and other road users safe.
Additionally, you will have LGV 1 pass protection, giving you a second attempt at your test, should you fail the first one.

Once you have passed the medical when you reach 45, you will then need to complete one every 5 years up to the age of 65, at which point, you will need to complete a driver’s medical every year.
