C1 and C1+E Training
Our C1 and C1+E training enables drivers to operate vehicles that weigh no more than 7500kg. Typically, students take our C1 course to further their career, whether this may be as an HGV or ambulance driver.
Do I Need To Take C1 Training?
If a driver needs to drive a vehicle that weighs any greater than 3500kg, they will be required to take C1 training and successfully pass their test. Our one-to-one training is available to drivers of all levels of experience and is tailored to individual requirements, ensuring that you can make the most out of your time with your instructor.
Depending on when you initially gained your driving licence, the C1 training that you require will slightly differ. This is based on the following dates:
If you gained your licence before 1st January 1997
For those who passed their driving test before January 1997, you may already have the C1 category on your driving licence, followed by 107. This number is a limit that prevents you from towing anything greater than 7.5 tonnes. To lift the code and carry greater masses, you will need to take a C1 licence training course and pass the C1+E test.

If you gained your licence after 1st January 1997
If you gained your driving licence after January 1997, then you will not have the C1 category listed on the back of your photocard licence. To gain the additional category, you will need to take a C1 test and complete the necessary C1 training. However, you will need to have category B listed on your driving licence and be over 18 to take the test.

Sharing Excellent Feedback
"Pure Driving helped me to pass my C1 licence first time on the day of the course, so I honestly couldn’t recommend more. My instructor, Dave, responded back to me really quickly after my enquiry and during my training, was so patient and friendly. A great experience all round! "
