The minibus C1+E training courses allows you to drive a vehicle and tow a trailer over 750kg. The combined MAM of both however cannot exceed 12,000kg.
You can now train on the C1E without having passed the C1 first, but you must hold the C1E provisional and have passed your theory tests following the process for C1.
We always recommend a free assessment drive before you book any driving course with us, and you can do this as soon as you have a provisional licence.
For a driver who already holds a C1 licence
2 Day £800 + VAT + £115 DVSA Test Fee
For a driver with no C1 Licence
3 Day £1150 + VAT + £115 DVSA Test Fee
To Drive for Commercial Use
If you require the Driver Qualification Card, you must have passed your PCV Case Studies theory and we will book the Module 4 Practical test with us during your training.
Module 4 Test Fee £55
If you passed your car test from 1 January 1997 onwards
You are not eligible to drive a C1 at all and will need to pass this test.
Licences held before 1 January 1997
If you passed your car test before 1 January 1997 you are generally entitled to drive a C1 vehicle for private use only – (NOT for hire or reward and will need to have your Driver Qualification card for commercial use)
We understand some drivers may have their LGV licence but may not have used it much or at all, or simply want to get back into the industry, and so wish to have some training to give them the confidence and skills to get back in the driving seat.
All drivers’ requirements will be different and so we will work with you to ensure the training is tailored to your skill set and outcomes.
