What is the C1 Licence

The C1 licence will allow you drive a vehicle with a weight of between 3.5tonnes and 7.5 tonnes.

Typically the driver will be looking to add the Category C1 to their Licence so they can drive an Ambulance or Horse Box or a 7.5t Commercial vehicle.

Highly recommended - Booking was a breeze with almost no waiting time between booking and training, and the price was the best I found. Took my C1 test with instruction from Nick who was an excellent trainer - informative, relaxed and fun to be around, filled me with confidence and got me to test standard in minimum time.
