C (Rigid) driver training
You can now get your C licence aged 18 at PJE Training in Herefordshire, which entitles you to drive any rigid lorry up to 32 tonnes. (When this category is added to your licence you automatically get the LGV C1-7.5 tonne added too).
To take this training, you need to:
- Be fully licensed to drive a car
- Be over 18 years old
- Have passed a medical
- Be in possession of a provisional C licence
- Have passed both the Hazard Perception and Theory tests
PJE Driver Training can provide you with help, materials and assistance, helping you to pass your driver theory and hazard perception tests.
All of our courses are tailored to suit your needs, with the test being carried out on the last day of training. All of our tests are carried out in Hereford.
The C test consists of:
- Safety checks on your vehicle and trailer
- Reversing exercise
- On-road driving
The test lasts approximately 75 minutes. The on-road driving part of the test is carried out to LGV standards; your training with DSA qualified instructors will cover on-road driving to ensure you are above the examiner’s expectations.
If you are planning on driving a lorry for a living you will also need to pass the driver CPC initial qualification.
