A 7.5 Tonne driver, or C1 driver, is qualified to drive a vehicle over 3,500kg (C) but below 7,500kg. The ‘+E’ entitles you to add a trailer over 750kg
C1 licence holders are likely to be driving vehicles used for making local supermarket deliveries or removals, for example. These are also referred to as 7.5 ton or Class 3 trucks.
Car licences issued before January 1997 have automatic rights to drive vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes (known as ‘grandfather rights’). If you gained your car licence after that date, you cannot automatically drive Category C1 vehicles, so you will require the training to upgrade your licence.
What can I drive with a C1 licence?
Up to £27,000 per year (£16.07 per hour)
Anyone with a car licence (Category B) over the age of 18 who is medically fit to drive.
