HGV Class 2 Training – Get Your Cat C Licence

A Class 2 driver is qualified to drive a truck over 3,500kg, including a trailer weighing up to 750kg.

TRAIN NOW, PAY LATER – FROM JUST £16.58* per week.

(See pricing illustration for full details)

This smaller truck, frequently referred to as a rigid, and weighing up to 32 tonnes, is normally used for making local and domestic deliveries.

The HGV Class 2 training route is the most popular one for new commercial vehicle drivers to take, as your Cat C licence automatically qualifies you to drive any vehicle covered by the Category C1 licence (vehicles over 3.5 tonne but below 7.5 tonne) and you cannot gain your Category C+E (Class 1) without it.

If you wanted to gain your C+E licence quickly, you could do both at the same time.

You can drive

• Most haulage trucks
• Fire engines
• Bin collection vehicles
• Large removal trucks

Earning potential:
£25-28,000 per annum

Suitable for:
Anyone with a car licence (Category B) over the age of 18 who is medically fit to drive.
