What is a LGV 2 driver?

An LGV 2 driver is someone that drives a rigid Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) that can carry weights of more than 3.5-tonne, but the Class 2 Category C licence held by an LGV 2 driver enables them to carry weights typically over 7.5-tonne or more.

Although no maximum weight limit is set, when you pass your Class 2 (LGV2) Category C licence, most rigid lorries will only transport up to 18-tonnes.
